This particular type is a standard specialty quality and carries three quality classifications -
- NY (New York) 2/3; specifies the quality is standard to the Green Coffee Association of New York. 2/3 refers to the number of defects permitted in the lot; a maximum of nine secondary defects, and no primary defects.
- SSFC (Strictly Soft Fine Cup); Strictly Soft beans are grown at relatively low altitudes (under 1200 meters). Beans grown at lower altitudes mature quickly and produce a lighter, less dense bean. This term also means the beans are free of hard rioy taints. Fine Cup means it is a specialty grade coffee.
- 17/18 refers to the screen size. These beans are one screen size larger than 14/16, denoting a larger bean. Larger bean size is generally linked to higher quality.
