    I believe he's looking for Black Java.. though his main goal is any java. After researching the breed he discovered that they are a heritage breed and is low on numbers, so his goal is to be part of history and raise this old breed, and help it's population. he's also interested in the fact that it is a duel breed that does well in the Wisconsin climate.
