This coffee is rated 86 points according to Daterra Farms.

The goal for Sweet Yellow is that it should be the sweetest coffee on Darterra's menu. To do that, they have mixed different yellow varietals, which are known to produce sweeter beans: the yellow color on the cherries reflects more sunlight than red cherries - this reflection makes yellow cherries cooler, slowing down the maturation process: a slower maturation means that the beans have better conditions and more time to develop sugars. They have chosen the very ripest cherries and pulped them. The result is a very round mouthfeel that brings swiss milk chocolate and toffee paired with citric acidity of yellow fruits.


Daterra is one of the most sophisticated coffee operations. Daterra is located near the city of Patrocinio, in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. This is the classic and famed Cerrado region of Brazil, where the fertile land is flat and ideal for coffee growing.

Daterra's beautiful, coffee-producing systems have turned the farm into an intensive network of lots, which are all monitored individually. Many have automated irrigation systems to ensure ideal nutrients and water make it to the plants themselves. 

When it comes time to harvest, Daterra will send members of the team to different lots to evaluate the cherry. They will also harvest small batches to strategize on when to harvest each individual varietal and ensure peak timing. The quality team will then make decisions on how to utilize each of these coffees and where on the menu they will be used.


Each menu tier has a wide array of coffee sub-brands represented within. Each of these sub-brands holds a flavor profile the quality team works tirelessly each year to consistently match and replicate, using combinations of coffee processes and varietals on the farm that work to that build. Think about it like a blend on a roaster's menu, putting components together to make something that's greater than the sum of its parts.

Daterra is a famed farm that was first purchased in 1976 and, today is an icon in the coffee-producing world. Leading by example, Daterra is the only B Corp certified coffee farm, has more certifications than we have space to list, and is steadily working towards being a climate-positive coffee farm.
