Strange that it is writen in roman characters as "tipika" in that sentence when "high mountain" is written in katakana. If it is written in roman characters I would expect it to be written correctly and not as a romanisation of the katakana.
kt_anthrax-san is correct,"typica" ( ティピカ) is a variety of arabica coffee plant, C. arabica 'Typica'.
List of coffee varieties
The variety we call Typica is basically the same variety of coffee the Dutch gave to King Louis the <check> back in the 17th century <check>. Although, since then it has mutated slightly to reflect its surroundings i.e. Mexican Typica is genetically slightly different to Kona (Hawaiian Typica), and they take different names to reflect this: Criollo (South America), Arabigo (Americas), Kona (Hawaii), Pluma Hidalgo (Mexico), Garundang (Sumatra), San Bernado & San Ramon (Brazil), Kents & Chickumalgu (India)
