ABOUT

In Brazil, yellow varieties like Yellow Bourbon are used widely because they offer sweeter cups than the red varieties and a profile that is more caramelly than chocolatey.
With this 25-second espresso blend, we were looking for a composition of just yellow bourbon, ideal for preparing an espresso. We began by carrying out several tests with our partners and arrived at a composition that seemed not only ideal in the cup, but also simpler to roast because it reflected our favourite cup: a blend of 3 processes – natural (70%), honey (20%) and fully washed (10%).

As you may have realised, it is named after the fact that exactly 25 seconds of extraction are required to obtain a perfect espresso!

THE TERROIR OF CERRADO

Le Cerrado is a young coffee-producing region that began its production in the early 1960s and is now internationally recognised for its quality. Located in the state of Minas Gerais, in western Brazil, Le Cerrado has however suffered from its name and reputation being stolen by neighbouring regions. A few years ago, 10 million bags left the country under the name "Cerrado", bearing in mind that the region's actual production capacity is just 5 million bags.
In 2013, the producers obtained the Denomination of Origin (DO) "Cerrado Minerio", which is a sign of quality and certifies authenticity. It proves that the coffee is indeed from the region and possesses qualities specific to its terroir of origin. Consumers and roasters are thus guaranteed to enjoy an Arabica coffee (a blend of varieties with mainly Mundo Novo and Catuai) produced in the region delimited by the certification at an altitude of between 800 m and 1,300 m, and that it scored at least 80 points under the SCAA cupping protocol.
Today, the DO includes some 4,500 producers spread over 17,000 hectares and is supported by 9 cooperatives, 7 associations and 1 foundation. An independent body certifies the quality of the coffees, to determine whether they may be "Cerrado Mineiro" certified or not.
