RUNIONESE COFFEE BEANS – BOURBON

Bourbon and Typica

Bourbon and Typica are the two main varieties of the Coffee Arabica species. They are considered to be the two “Heirloom”or “Heritage” Arabica coffee varieties, which originated in south western Ethiopia. It is believed that most Arabica coffee varietals are derivatives of the Typica or Bourbon variety.

It is commonly accepted that the Bourbon variety is a natural mutant variety of Typica. Recent genetic studies suggest that Typica and Bourbon coffee beans were brought from the forests of Southwestern Ethiopia to Yemen for cultivation. From Yemen the coffee plants spread to other parts of the world. Continue reading RUNIONESE COFFEE BEANS – BOURBON

FOOD AND COFFEE PAIRING

Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean. – Ryunosuke Satoro,

Japanese writer, poet

Coffee and food

Why don’t we pair coffee with food, in order to enhance the complex flavors of both?
In doing so, we could first smell and taste our coffee drinks. With no food at all to identify their distinct texture, body, and flavors. Then we could start investigating how well various different coffee beans pair with different exotic fruits, herbs, artisan dairy or nuts. Which food flavours are complementary to the identified flavors of our chosen coffee beans and visa versa? We can be curious adventures that are having fun, discovering and creating memorable experiences around coffee, which will open up a new world of flavors to us!

In doing so, only the skin and the pulp of the coffee cherry are removed. The coffee beans (seeds) are dried within the remaining honey-like, sugary, mucilage layer – the gluey substance, underneath the pulp of the cherry, covering the two coffee seeds.
