THE ARÁBICA

This variety is one of the species of coffee plants that are in wide cultivation globally. Arabica is the dominant species in Central and South America and much of east Africa and is also considered to produce the highest cup quality.
Distinct Arabica varieties must have uniform characteristics and stable reproduction

TYPICA

(Also called Criollo, Indio, Arábigo, Blue Mountain and Sumatra.)
Typica is the most famous of the Arabica Typica-descended varieties, which originated in southwestern Ethiopia sometime in the 15th or 16th century.

Arabica Typica has been grown, hybridized and perfected for centuries. It is a tall variety characterized by very low production,
which generally produce an excellent quality cup of coffee, demonstrating outstanding sweetness, cleanliness and body.

GESHA (Panamá Geisha)

This variety was originally collected from the coffee forests in Ethiopia in the 1930s. It was introduced to Panamá in the 1960s. Panamanian Gesha has exceptionally high quality at high altitudes. The term “Gesha” is often applied to other coffees that do not share the distinct genetics of Panamanian Gesha. Recent genetic diversity analyses conducted by World Coffee Research (WCR) confirm that Panamanian
Gesha is descendent from variety T2722 and is distinct and uniform. Gesha is considered the queen of coffee varieties with an amazingly complex and intense flavour profile. It is considered an extremely high cup quality when the plants are managed well at high altitude and is known for its delicate floral, jasmine, and peach-like aromas.

CATUAI

It is a cross between highly productive Mundo Novo and compact Caturra, created in 1949 in Brazil. The word Catuai derives from the Guaraní expression “multo mom”, meaning “very good”. It is a compact coffee plant with high yielding potential of standard quality in Central America. Our Catuai tends toward mild sweetness, balanced bright acidity, with the flavour of black cherry, peach and chocolate.

PACAMARA

Pacamara is a hybrid between the Bourbon mutation Pacas and Maragogype. It was bred in El Salvador in 1958 probably to achieve a Typica variety that produces the largest coffee beans.  While most Pacamara is still grown in El Salvador, it also grows in Panamá at higher elevations. This variety normally display striking sugary sweetness and florals. The flavour profile is outstanding, with sweet citrus notes, wonderful balance and hints of floral aromas.
