Unraveling the Mystique of Typica Coffee

In the bustling world of coffee beans, each variety carries its unique story and flavor profile. Typica coffee stands as a true classic among the many coffee varieties out there, renowned for its rich heritage and distinctive characteristics. In this exploration, we will delve into the captivating world of Typica coffee, uncovering its origins, flavor notes, and why it's a cornerstone in the Coffee on Mars lineup.

Typica Coffee: A Heritage Worth Sipping

Typica coffee, often called “Arabica Typica,” boasts a heritage that spans generations. This coffee variety is believed to have originated in the Ethiopian highlands, making it one of the world’s oldest and most cherished coffee cultivars. The Typica plant has been nurtured and refined over centuries, resulting in a coffee bean that echoes its ancestral roots.

Typica beans are characterized by their compact size, oval shape, and gentle curve, embodying the very essence of what coffee should be. They are treasured for their versatility and ability to adapt to various growing conditions while consistently delivering a balanced and well-rounded cup of coffee.

The Unique Terroir of Typica Coffee

One factor contributing to Typica coffee’s distinctiveness is the environment in which it is grown. At Coffee on Mars, our Typica beans are sourced responsibly from a single-family women-owned farm in San Ignacio, Cajamarca, Peru. This region’s terroir plays a vital role in shaping the flavor profile of Typica coffee.

  • Altitude: Typica coffee thrives from 1600 to 2100 meters above sea level (mas). The high-altitude environment imparts a unique character to the beans, influencing their flavor complexity and acidity levels.
  • Soil: The Typica beans grow in clay mineral-rich soil, absorbing essential minerals and nutrients that contribute to their distinctive flavor. This mineral-rich soil provides a solid foundation for developing Typica’s unique taste.

The Water-Washed Elegance of Typica

Typica coffee undergoes meticulous water-washing, elevating its overall quality and flavor profile. This method involves using water to remove the coffee cherry’s mucilage before drying the beans. The benefits of water-washing for Typica coffee are manifold:

  • Cleaner Flavor Profile: Water-washed Typica coffee is celebrated for its clean and distinct flavor profile, allowing the natural characteristics of the beans to shine through. Coffee enthusiasts can savor the nuanced notes without distractions.
  • Reduced Acidity: The water-washing process results in lower acidity levels in Typica coffee. Those with sensitive stomachs can particularly appreciate this gentle acidity, as it reduces the risk of discomfort often associated with highly acidic coffees.

Moreover, Typica’s lower mycotoxin content ensures a safer and healthier cup of coffee. This reduction in mycotoxins, which can develop during drying, offers peace of mind for coffee lovers who prioritize their well-being.
