Typica is the base from which many coffee varietals have been developed. Typica is the oldest variety in Panama, first cultivated in the late 1800s.
Typica coffee plants are tall, low-yielding plants with a conical shape. The bean has an elongated, oval shape. Typica coffee has a very low production but excellent cup quality.
The Typica varietal produces a clean and resonant acidity which increases in intensity at higher elevations. The cup can be characterized by lemon and floral notes and by a sweet aftertaste.
