Laurina is a variety originally from Réunion Island, French Department, Formerly known as “Bourbon Island”, it was there that the famous cultivar of the same name emerged in the eighteenth century.
The caffeine content in the seeds ranges from 0.4% to 0.75%, almost half of the 1.2% to 1.6% common in other Arabic cultivars.
The low caffeine content makes the plants very delicate, making cultivation difficult and complex, requiring a lot of agility and care in processing and milling.
The combination of delicacy, rarity, fragility, and drink quality make Bourbon Pointu (Laurina) one of the most expensive coffees in the world.

THE BEANSTALK PROJECT
We want to turn our magic beans into something wonderful - just like Jack did in the fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk. Let’s take the magic potential of coffee beans and make something beautiful - trees!
For every kg of Brazilian coffee sold, we will plant a tree in Brazil. 1 kg = 1 tree. That’s it.
