Bourbon is a popular coffee variety that is widely celebrated for its exceptional quality and distinct flavor profile. It is named after the Bourbon region of Reunion Island (formerly known as Bourbon Island), where it was first discovered in the 18th century.

With a reputation for its smooth and well-balanced taste, Bourbon coffee beans are known for their medium body, low acidity, and delightful fruity notes. It offers a delightful combination of flavors, ranging from subtle sweetness to hints of caramel, chocolate, and even floral undertones.

The Bourbon coffee plant is characterized by its compact size, making it easier to grow and harvest. This variety requires specific growing conditions, including high altitudes, rich volcanic soil, and a balanced climate with ample rainfall. As a result, Bourbon coffee beans are often cultivated in regions like Central and South America, Africa, and the Indian Ocean islands to produce high-quality and flavorful brews.
