About this coffee:
The Catuai variety is a hybrid between Mundo Novo and Red Caturra. It is a small sturdy plant and was developed in Brazil by the Instituto Agronômico de Campinas (IAC). Catuai can yield both yellow and red fruits.
Pacas is a natural mutation of Bourbon, similar to Caturra in Brazil and Villa Sarchi in Costa Rica. Similar to other widely cultivated Bourbon mutants, Pacas has a single-gene mutation that causes the plant to grow smaller (dwarfism). This is it’s chief virtue: the plant’s small size leads to higher potential yields and the possibility of placing plants closer together to increase total fruit production on a farm.
Combining these to coffee Varieties with Jose's meticulous natural processing makes for an exciting cup of fruit forward coffee magic!
