Bellissimo - 8 oz bag


Bellissimo - 8 oz bag


Everyone who drinks Bellissimo becomes obsessed. It is simply one of the finest coffees we have ever enjoyed. Chocolate is there, but not heavy, very light. Mellow notes of bursting purple grape, blackberry. Hints of soft walnut, sweet pecan. Extremely smooth finish. Leaves the mouth feeling tantalized, clean, wanting more.

Our Bellissimo blend comes from a limited edition variety of beans grown at Daterra Farms in Brazil. These innovative coffee growers are known for their respect for the environment. Daterra Farms has earned numerous environmental certifications, including Rainforest Alliance Certification. Daterra's sustainable practices focus on: optimizing the water-use in coffee processing; treating and recycling the used water; producing and using organic fertilizer (Bio-Mass); preserving native forests, wildlife and waterfalls; and educating local communities about the importance of ecology. Significantly, 50% of its lands have been designated as Natural Preservation Areas. 

In partnership with IAC (Agronomic Institute of Campinas) and Illycafé, Daterra has researched extensively to select the following bean varieties that yield the best cup: Typica - original natural coffee from Ethiopia; Bourbon - mutant of Typica from the Island of Bourbon; Caturra - natural mutant of Bourbon originated in Brasil; Mundo Novo - natural cross pollination of Sumatra and Bourbon in Brazil; Red and Yellow Icatu - back cross of Bourbon and Canephora Tetraploid.

Coffee this good is a rare and beautiful thing.
