In 2014, Marcos Croce, from Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza went to Nicaragua to visit a farm called Selva Negra, where he received these seeds of the Java Varietal. This was the same lineage of the Typica that went to the island of Java centuries ago. 

 

This is a Typica Varietal that left Ethiopia for Southeast Asia long ago. It is thought to be the same varietal that was brought to the islands of Sumatra and Java. In Sumatra, there was a spontaneous mutation that made the beans slightly larger and, over time, the Sumatran strain varied slightly from the Java strain.

The Dutch brought the Sumatra 'Typica' to Surinam and later to Brazil. This made it the first Arabica coffee varietal to be planted in Brazil in 1727. The coffee we offer here is from our partner farmer João Hamilton, who dates his Sumatran varietals back almost 100 years. 

Marcus and Felipe Croce planted these at FAF and at João Hamilton's farm (Sitio Canaã) and found the plants to be very similar but in fact, Java to have slightly smaller beans. The Java has adapted quite well, and on the cupping notes, we have found a higher intensity of florality. The resulting coffee has complex flavors of blueberry yogurt, juicy, with a tea-like body and a sweet, lactic taste of condensed milk.
