[ 3 ] Story
This variety Bourbon Aruzi was discovered in Inza, Cauca.
The farmer Javier saw a coffee tree that looked very different from the typical tree grown in the region. This unknown tree had a higher yield and was more resistant to disease.
He began to collect the seeds and decided to propagate this unique variety.
Later, the seeds were sent to a lab in London for further analysis. They found that the genetics and structure were similar to Bourbon Aruzi, a variety grown in Ethiopia.
