Eureka:

From last year's Daterra sale: " Paraiso is a cross between a Timor Hybrid and a Yellow Catuai. The trees are short and give yellow cherries that make great cups. Besides that, the Paraíso trees are resistant to the leaf rust and to a particularly dangerous type of nematode called Meloidogyne exigua."

Link for Daterra is here and here

There's not a lot of information on it except what Daterra says so it probably is some type of micro test lot. It's not the first catuai/timor cross, another successful one called Catigua but it's from a red catuai not yellow but it seems to have the same resistant qualities this Paraiso is good for. Coffee varietals can be pretty competitive and exclusive so Daterra probably has a lot of incentive to make their own.

Yes I'm aware of this and would love to try it, but I don't even think it's sold yet. It's supposed to be fairly tolerant to warmer climates like the 25C range which off hand may be ideal for places like Indonesia that has the ideal growing elevation but less than ideal hotter temps.
