Natural cross between red Bourbon and yellow Botucatu
Variants of Bourbon xanthocarpa (yellow fruits) were first examined in 1930, but the origin is little known. It may have come from a mutation of red Bourbon, or it may have emerged as a product of the recombination of the natural crossing of red Bourbon and yellow Botucatu
Yellow Bourbon is tall and a more rare type of coffee. Only 20% is processed as "honey", and this coffee is therefore "micro-lots" collected in Minas Gerais. Availability is very limited, and usually all such coffee goes to Japan, but this year we were the ones who got rid of the crops.
Honey is a very special variant that you only get the first time (not always) you pick berries from a new shrub.
