Typica Coffees are a sub-variety of the Arabica family of coffees - a more specific division of what are generally considered high quality coffee beans. They're fairly tall for coffee trees, and produce less coffee than other varietals, which means that the yield tends to be lower and more difficult. So why would a farmer choose the Typica varietal over others? Quality. Typica coffees are known for a certain sweetness, and cup very well - some of the best coffees in the world are from the Typica family.
