Laurina is a rare variety from the Reunion Islands, also known as Bourbon LC or Bourbon Pointu due to its odd tree and bean shape – the trees have a conical shape while the beans are small and pointy on the edges. Laurina has a smaller caffeine index in comparison to other arabica varietals, which makes it more difficult to grow (caffeine acts on the plant as natural insecticide, and the reduced content makes the plant more fragile and less productive). Due to its lower caffeine content it is naturally lower in bitterness as well, which makes for a really sweet and delicious cup!
