Bourbon coffee

Bourbon coffee is a type of coffee produced from the Bourbon cultivar of the Coffea arabica species of coffee plant. Bourbon coffee was first produced in Réunion, which was known as Île Bourbon before 1789. It was later taken by the French to mainland Africa and to Latin America, and is now one of the two most popular Arabica coffees grown worldwide, the other being Typica coffee.

Bourbon coffee is usually produced at heights between 3,500 and 6,500 feet (1,062–1,972 m) and gives a 20-30% higher yield than Typica, but produces a similar quality of coffee.
