(including Pache Comun, Pache Colis and Pache Enano).
According to Guatemala’s National Coffee Association (Anacafé) Pache is a natural mutation of Typica, originally discovered in Guatemala in farms of El Brito, Santa Cruz Naranjo and Santa Rosa. There are several hybrids that have originated from the original Pache, including Pache Colis (first found on a farm in Mataquescuitla, Guatemala where Pache and Caturra were cultivated) and Pache Enano, or Dwarf Pache.
The varieties display some similar qualities, including relatively large coffee cherries and robust leaves. Descendant varieties also show partial resistance towards phoma (a common soil fungus).
