Our handpicked single origin Yellow Catuai coffee comes from our friends at Ipanema Coffees in Brazil. Grown on the Fazenda de Rio Verde, a farm in operation since 1887, and named for the berry's striking yellow colour, it is a lovely balanced coffee with a creamy body and notes of caramel and raisin. Brilliant for espressos due to its robust acidity.
Ipanema Coffees own 5 farms in the Minas Gerais region of Brazil, which produces roughly half of the countries total output of coffee. They take an extremely organised approach their coffee production and have constantly innovated since their start in 1970. Fazenda de Rio Verde where this coffee is grown is nestled amidst beautiful forests and waterfalls, and Ipanema Coffees have devoted less than 50% of the farms total area to coffee production, setting up the Environment Monitoring Centre to manage the farming practices to protect the local environment.
