Typica

Typica is a variety with complex notes and can bring a pleasant honey and caramel aftertaste. 

 

 By natural mutation this variety gave rise to most of the other coffee varieties.  The Typica variety is one of the main four branches of the coffee family tree.  At the end of the 1700s the Dutch managed to steal a coffee plant form the Turks in the port of Mocha, Yemen, which they took first to Dutch colonies in Java and East Timor, and then to the Caribbean. 

The plant can grow up to 5 meters high and its leaves are elliptical and elongated.  The flat side of the bean is remarkably smooth and even, and the groove in the middle is bigger and deeper than any other variety.  The slope of the groove especially in larger beans is straight and has very noticeable edges.  The angle of the primary branch with respect to the main trunk is around 67º
