Tasting NotesPlum, Dark Chocolate, Blackcurrant
Recommended brew method
The Yellow Bourbon bean variety is thought to take its name from a single coffee tree. In 1713, King Louis XIV was presented with a coffee tree by the Dutch. Seedlings from this tree were later transported to the French Island of Bourbon which is now called Reunion.
This Yellow Bourbon coffee grown is on the Daterra Farm. The farm is made up of 216 micro farms, each bringing its own individual characteristics. The Daterra Farm Cooperative are world leaders in sustainable production and innovation in the coffee industry. They were the first farm in Brazil to become Rainforest Alliance certified.
We roast this Brazil Yellow Bourbon dark to bring out its delectable smoothness and flavours of rich dark chocolate with blackcurrant and plum notes.
I am often asked “Mr Higgins, which is your favourite coffee?”
That question takes me all the way back to when I first Joined the company. Then I was the most junior member of staff. Though I had worked in the business before leaving school and for as long as I could remember, I was the new boy, a trainee.
