Coffee varietals: Typica Mejorado varietal

Descended from Bourbon

Mejorado is a very unique variety mainly grown in Ecuador.

Recent genetic testing by World Coffee Research demonstrated that Typica Mejorado is a hybrid of Bourbon and Ethiopian Heirloom/Landrace—it’s not a descendant of the Typica lineage, even though it’s taken the name of ‘Typica Mejorado’.

The cup profile is meant to have a more refined sweetness and body and a higher quality acidity compared to the regular Bourbon variety.
