From these early plants, farmers and breeders have selected and created dozens of widely cultivated Arabica coffee varieties, each unique in its performance and adaptation to local conditions.
A tall variety that combines high yields, tolerance to coffee leaf rust, resistance to coffee berry disease, and good cup quality.
One of the most culturally and genetically important _C. arabica_ varieties in the world, known for excellent quality in the cup at the highest altitudes.
Very high yielding with very good quality potential if planted in healthy soil and at elevations >1300 meters, with resistance to rust. Well-adapted for agroforestry.
High yielding plant adapted to lowest altitudes. Requires high fertilization.
All of the varieties listed in this catalog have been created through traditional breeding approaches. To the knowledge of scientists at World Coffee Research, no commercially available coffee variety has been created through genetic engineering.
World Coffee Research and all parties receiving funding from WCR are prohibited from engaging in the development of genetically modified coffees.
World Coffee Research is a 501 (c)(5) non-profit, collaborative research and development program of the global coffee industry to grow, protect, and enhance supplies of quality coffee while improving the livelihoods of the families who produce it.
We've created a printable version of our coffee variety catalog specifically for farmers. Available in English and Spanish.
