Development background
Currently, coffee-producing countries around the world are facing the “Coffee 2050 Problem*2,” in which the areas suitable for producing Arabica coffee will decrease due to climate change. In order to solve this problem, coffee-producing countries are constantly selecting and developing varieties suitable for each region, such as varieties that are resistant to climate change and varieties that have high yields. Aiming to realize sustainable coffee production, in April of this year, we established the “Future Coffee Department”, a specialized department to promote sustainable activities related to coffee production, under the direct control of the president. The Coffee Future Department carries out various activities, such as activities to discover varieties that adapt to climate change and initiatives in industry-academia-government collaboration. Among them, we believe that activities to “protect the diversity of coffee varieties” are also important. will be released.

Mexican Typica
‘Typica’ is the origin of many of the Arabica coffee varieties grown today, with small, elongated leaves and elongated cherries and beans. Pulma Hidalgo in southwestern Mexico, where the “Future of Coffee Mexican Typica” to be released this time is produced, is carrying out activities to protect Typica as a whole production area. Roasted with a medium roast, it brings out the faint scent of honey and chamomile, and the soft bitterness and sourness of lemon peel.
