      Bourbon is a natural mutation of Typica originating from La Réunion {until 1848 known as Île Bourbon}. The coffee was planted in 1708 by the French who acquired seeds from the Dutch, who in turn acquired them from Yemen. Colour of the cherries is  due to a recessive gene, they can be either pink, yellow, orange or like this offering, red when ripe. Bourbon is 1/3rd more productive than Typica.
