Bourbon coffee varietals originated from Yemen and was transported to La Reunion by French missionaries in the early 1700s. For 150 years, bourbon was cultivated exclusively on this island in the Indian Ocean. In the mid-1800s, as colonial aspirations heightened, the plant made it's way to Africa, Latin America, and the Pacific. Caturra coffee varietal is a natural mutation of the Bourbon variety which was then breed in Brazil to select the best-performing plants and propogate their seeds in the early 1900s.
