What are Coffee Varieties?

May 26, 2017

What are Typica, Bourbon, Caturra, Castillo, Pacamara or Gesha?

They are names of coffee varieties!

Like wine (Shiraz, Merlot etc) and apple (Jazz, Granny Smith etc), different varieties have different flavours and characteristics, it's the same for coffee too!

The story of coffee started from Ethiopia, the birthplace of thousands of wild coffee varieties across the country. As time passes, coffee spread around world and today, we are able to get different varietals of coffees from all around the world!

Counter Culture Coffee has a very informative short video about all commonly seen coffee varietals in the world of specialty coffee. Do check out our Past Boxes, you'll get to see what our favourite coffee varieties are! 

If you have been enjoying lots of coffee, you'll notice the trend of coffee varieties that you like! For us, Bourbon is our favourite =)
