Traditional Varieties in Latin America
By Caravela Coffee
In this episode we look at the traditional varieties that we most commonly work with at Caravela. The traditional varieties found all over Latin America can all be traced back to either Typica or Bourbon. That is to say that many of the traditional varieties that we see today are either mutations or hybrids of these two original varieties, but what does this really mean? To understand some of the terminology and to help us tell the story, we speak with research technician for World Coffee Research: Julio Alvarado.
