    Caturra among the Best of its class

    Caturra is distinguished by its bright acidity and low-to-medium body. It has less clarity and sweetness than its parent, Bourbon. First developed in Brazil, these small trees are found throughout Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Colombia.

    Many varietals are chosen for cultivation based not necessarily on their flavor or aromatic qualities, but more so for their resistance to diseases and the ease with which they may be grown.
