White Rock Coffee
Daterra Brazil Sweet Yellow Bourbon
|Roaster Location:||Dallas, Texas|
|Coffee Origin:||Cerrado growing region, Minas Gerais State, Brazil|
|Review Date:||January 2006|
I found myself using the term "delicate" several times in describing this coffee: delicate coffee fruit tones in the aroma, delicate but smooth mouthfeel, and a delicately complex flavor: nuts, dried fruit (raisins perhaps) with hints of wine and semi-sweet chocolate. Roaster Bob Baker nominated this coffee, citing its "sweet, honey laden cup."
Daterra is a large, technically sophisticated producer of extremely refined coffees in Brazil's relatively recently developed Cerrado growing region, as well as in the classic Mogiana growing region. White Rock Coffee is a micro-roaster and cafe-restaurant located in Northeast Dallas. Visit
Who Should Drink It
Those who enjoy coffee, but find most medium-roasted coffee too acidy and dark-roasted too bitter.
