Syrupy, juicy and clean as a whistle, with notes of yellow nectarine, blackcurrant + panela upfront with hot strawberry jam and sticky date pudding in the finish.

Sítio da Torre - Alvaro Antônio Pereira Coli
The Pereira family has specialised in coffee for four generations. Today their farm in Carmo de Minas is run by the jovial Álvaro Antônio Pereira Coli who works the land that his great-grandfather planted with coffee in the 1860's.
The combination of the fantastic natural conditions of this region, combined with Pereira Coli’s meticulous crop management, careful and innovative post-harvest processing and selection results in excellent quality, award-winning coffees year after year. Alvaro's coffee has been recognised many times in the Cup of Excellence awards, and we were certainly impressed with a few of their microlots when we tasted it in Brazil. His Yellow Bourbon stood out as one of our favourite coffees on the table, and we are very excited to share it with you!
After spending a few days with Alvaro we'll remember him just as much for his infectious laughter after practicing his English as his outstanding coffee. Obrigado Alvaro!
