Yellow Bourbon is thought to have originated from the French Island of Île Bourbon (known as Île de la Réunion from 1793 and now Réunion) in the Indian Ocean between Madagascar and Mauritius and was later taken by the French to mainland Africa and South America.
Yellow Bourbon grows best at altitudes between 1,100 and 2,000 meters above sea level and is primarily found in Brazil. Although at risk of pest and disease, and with below average yields, this variety is commercially desired as the lower density beans are concentrated in flavours, producing great cup profiles.
Alto Alegre Coffees is a family run business that has been cultivating coffee since the 1880s.
The family operates a sharecropping policy with their employees.
The total area of the farm is approximately 500 hectares with 90 hectares dedicated to coffee. The remaining area is used for beef cattle and grain and 70 hectares is occupied by natural forest which constitutes a permanent preservation area.
The estate of Alto Alegre Coffees is located in the south of Minas Gerais. At 1340m, it is one of the highest altitudes for coffee growing in Brazil. Their coffee is single estate and single variety.
They can trace the coffee back to the trees it came from giving the consumer great traceability.

Why are we asking you for a telephone number?
It is for the delivery company to contact you in case of any difficulties they have with your delivery, if you do not provide us with a telephone number and there are any issues with the delivery of your order the delivery company will not be able to contact you. If you are having your order shipped via DHL and you provide us with your mobile number they will send you updates via text message but we can set this to an email if not appropriate.

Royal Mail will not class an item as lost or missing for 15 working days but we always ask that you wait for 7, unfortunately we can not take action until this time has passed. During this time we recommend that you ask your local sorting office if they've already tried to deliver (even if they haven't left a card) and ask your neighbours if your order has been left with them. You should also check that the delivery address you gave us is correct, this can be found on your shipping confirmation email.
