Genetically confirmed seed lots

A list of seed lots in the Latin American region confirmed to be producing DNA-verified arabica varieties

About seed lot evaluation

World Coffee Research (WCR) genetically evaluated the seed lots listed in this document between 2020 and 2023 in the Latin American region. These sites were chosen because they are sources of seed in their communities, produce varieties that can be verified by DNA, and have homogenous lots. Of the lots sampled, those included in this list have 100% genetic purity for the sampled variety and have given their consent for their data to be published.

The molecular markers used were single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and the approved sampling protocol was used by the WCR team.
