Description

Stack of coffee beansCaturra is a natural mutation of Bourbon, a sub-species of the gourmet Arabica coffee plant. The Caturra varietal was first found in the town of Caturra in Brazil but was further developed for wide-spread cultivation. It’s a much more resilient coffee plant and adapts well to almost any environment between 1200 and 1750 meters above sea level.

At higher altitudes quality increases, which is why we source Caturra high in the Apaneca-Ilamatepec Mountains in the Northwest corner of El Salvador (near Guatemala). Generally this varietal shows a more citric acidity like lemon and lime notes and is distinguished by its bright acidity and low-to-medium body. However, it has less clarity and sweetness than its parent, Bourbon.
