What’s more Seattle than salmonberries? Grown at a sky-high 4500 ft elevation, these sweet yellow bourbon beans are piquant and bright, with blended, craft cocktail-like flavors and a lush finish. Serve up (that is, in your favorite mug).
Our old friends at Malacara B have done it again: this year’s Yellow Bourbon offers a slinky, rich flavor profile with exceptional quality and bright notes of salmonberry, molasses, and blackberry. There's nothing left to say but, go ahead, order another round!

"Definitely brought to mind a rich, smooth bourbon. The flavor was darker than I was expecting from a light roast, but there was no bitter bite that I experience from dark roasts. The flavors and richness is best enjoyed while kicking back and relaxing on the porch." (5 out of 5)
"This roast has a darker flavor to it because of the molasses notes. The fruit notes are good, and more subtle than I anticipated. Nice brew and would recommend it if you enjoy medium roasts as well." (4 out of 5)
"The tasting notes mentioned salmonberry. I had never tasted or even heard of salmonberries before, but if they taste like this coffee-WOW. The coffee was delicious and one of the best I've received. I brewed it with an aero press. " (5 out of 5)
"Tasty and smooth! I brewed it with a Chemex. I used one of the natural brown coffee filters, probably would have been better with one of the white filters." (5 out of 5)
"Hands down the best cup of coffee so far. The rich flavor of molasses mixed with fruit was truly incredible. " (5 out of 5)
"Simply put, this El Salvador offering from Zoka is one of my favorite coffees ever...and I don't normally like fruity coffee! Notes of blueberry, dark cherry, caramel, and a great hint of burnt sugar bitterness makes for a well-rounded cup! " (5 out of 5)
"This coffee has a delicious "syrupy" finish, the molasses really pops out at you! Especially pronounced if you use an Aeropress. Brew Methods Used - Aeropress (inverted), La Pavoni Europiccola espresso machine." (5 out of 5)
"Very good light roast coffee from a an excellent roaster. We really enjoy light roast coffee and this was one of the better ones we have received. Complex flavor with mellow finish." (5 out of 5)
"I enjoyed this coffee but I have to note that it is best enjoyed without any half and half added. On it's own the molasses and BlackBerry come through from behind of a woody earthy flavor." (4 out of 5)
"This one was bolder than I expected from a light roast but the I enjoyed the finish on it!" (4 out of 5)
