Coffee Arabica Typica was the first variety of the species discovered in the Kaffa region of Ethiopia centuries ago. Coffee Typica seeds were brought to the Americas by a French Naval officer in the 1700s. Typica has since spawned mutations such as Jamaican Blue Mountain, San Ramon, Pache, Villalobos, Java and Jember, among others. Typica is a low yielding variety commonly recognized by their thinly shaped, copper colored leaves and extended, oval-shaped bean size. Cup quality is generally excellent, demonstrating outstanding sweetness, cleanliness and body.
