Hi, I think if not mistaken there is an interesting cultivar; "S795" (Selection 795) in India, which is a coffee cultivar important for being an early strain of arabica crossed with liberica and is leaf rust resitant to some extent. It is a crossing between liberica and arabica ("Kent") which can, even if not 100% Liberica, give you a special experience VS many others in the cup depending on cultivation and roast. I believe it can soon be availble in some of first markets/countries on the Era of We from Indian estates onboarding soon. I have cupped it from higher elevations and it is a very balanced rich cup. Look out for them...

Hi! I have tried coffee from the Whiitestone Farms, Kenya this morning. It was really nice. I have two questions. One about the varieties, is it both SL28 and Ruiru11? Is this coffee 100% Arabica?
Do farmers earn more with specialty coffee beans? How much does the cost of specialty coffee differ from the cost of regular ones?
