Catuai is a dwarf varietal crossbred from Mundo Novo and Caturra by Instituto Agronomico do Campinas in Brazil in 1949.

You can find both Yellow Catuai and Red Catuai varieties but the cup quality (refined and clean acidity) is hardly distinguishable. This hybrid is widely grown in areas with strong winds or rain since its short stature is highly resistant and tolerant to these natural elements.
