Java-Nica

A friend of mine, Erwin, from Nicaragua sent me some seeds of a varietal that I've never heard of, Java-Nica in March. There are two stories in circulation about its origins, but not a whole lot is known. It should be an old Java varietal, long-berry to be precise.

And what varietal won 2nd in the Nica. Cup of Excellence? Java-Nica!

It's early for me to count on $18.55 a pound green. October is the best coffee planting season in the Southern DR and I plan on planting it then. But check with me in 3 years and I can you how it cups.
