Perfetto Brazil Fazenda Santa BarbaPerfetto Brazil Fazenda Santa Barbara Yellow Bourbon Arabica Green Beans
As a coffee variety, Yellow Bourbon has been cultivated in the fields for nearly 90 years. But lets start from the beginning, with its parents.
By the 1850s, Brazil had become a major global coffee producer country. The sector was heavily reliant on the Typica variety, which was introduced in the 1720s. Given Typicas limited yields and subsequently reduced export volume potential a Brazilian emissary traveled to Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar, to secure some seeds of the infamous Red Bourbon variety. By the 1870s, Red Bourbon had become a prominent coffee variety throughout many of the Brazilian coffee lands.
Then, in 1871, something strange appeared. In the city of Botucatu in the State of So Paulo: a mutation of Typica bore yellow berries, something never before seen in Brazil, according to numerous records. While the yellow Typica mutation, referred to then as Yellow Botucatu, wasn't particularly productive, it was adopted by a number of farmers for the curious color of its fruit. It should be noted that some researchers believe that Yellow Bourbon originated as a natural Red Bourbon mutation.
