Yellow Bourbon is a naturally occurring mutation of the Red Bourbon variety, first discovered outside Sao Paulo in 1930. While it is still susceptible to coffee leaf rust, it has a early maturation of cherry making it ideal for growing at high altitudes where the fruit of coffee trees usually matures more slowly. It has developed a reputation for elevated sweetness and crisp acidity, making it stand out from typical nutty-tasting Brazilian coffees. We tasted quite a few coffees from Brazil and loved this lot from the farm Cachoeira de Grama in Mogiana. We know you will too.
