Producing a staggering average of 43 million bags of coffee annually and a third of the world’s supply, Brasil is the uncontested king of coffee farming. Over the last couple of decades, some Brasilian farmers have started focusing on specialist coffees such as the Yellow Bourbon, a genetic mutation of the Red Bourbon which appeared naturally in the 1930s, the offspring of the Red Bourbon imported from the Reunion island in the 19th century and a yellow mutation of the Typica plant.
To know what to expect, think ‘Brasil Santos on steroids’. It has the smoothness of South American coffee beans, but it is richer than Brasil Santos with more flavour while retaining delicate tones of caramel, almonds and walnuts.
It first started out as an occasional special guest at our shop but quickly became so popular with our customers that it was added to our menu permanently.
Like all the roasted coffee beans we sell, we don’t rely on computer-controlled roasting profiles. The medium/mild roasting of the Brasil Miaki Yellow Bourbon is supervised by our expert master roaster who decides, by eye, when the beans have reached the right roasting, to give you the highest-quality cup of coffee.
