Erecta is natural genetic variation of Typica found in Java in 1913. The branches form an angle of about 25º with the main stem so that the fruiting branches are rather erect, like pointing to the sky, hence the name Erecta for this coffee. The trees are susceptible to be grounded by wind and are poor yielders. The beans are more slender than those of Typica. Total Nitrogen content in its green bean is superior than that of other coffee varieties.
