About Caturra and the Inoculation process
Caturra is a botanical cultivar that originated in Minas Gerais Brazil and is a result of a natural mutation of the varietal bourbon. Grown throughout South and Central America it is prized for its good cup quality and high density cultivation.  I
The fermentation/Inoculation process that uses tartaric acid and cinnamon sticks takes what is a good botanical cultivar to new interesting heights and underscores the financial benefits experimentation, when done to the highest level, can provide for producers.
