The Caturra variety comes from Brazil. It is a mutation of the Bourbon variety, but is much higher yielding in comparison. In addition, the Caturra coffee plant reaches only a short height, so it is much easier for workers to pick the ripe cherries by hand during harvesting. The cherries have either a red or slightly yellowish colour.
The Caturra variety is known for a medium-heavy body and combination with a slight acidity.
