SL34 is a mutation of the French Mission, or Bourbon, coffee variety created at Scott Laboratories in Kenya during the 1930s. SL34 has bronze tipped leaves which differentiates it from its predecessor, SL28, and leads us to believe that it has greater lineage to the Typica variety than the SL28. SL34, regarded as very resistant to heavy rainfall at high altitudes, is known for an ability to produce top quality at medium-to-high altitudes. SL34 flavor is characterized by its complex citric acidity, heavy mouthfeel and clean, sweet finish.
