Other info Maragogype


Maragogype is a mutant variety from the plant typica, that was first fount in Brazil. This plant has huge leaves large cherries and most interesting to us huge beans. The size of the plant limits its ability to have a large yield so for the farmer its not as big an earner as some other varieties could be. But what it gives in the cup is with this lower yield (see here) that the coffee gets a better chance of producing great coffee. Any one who tells you its because of the bean size is wrong (tell them I told you to tell them :) ) This coffee has a great body, clean flavour, and to die for balance. They are unique among other central Americans, as they tend to be better in the filter for me than the espresso. The acidity is bitey but not in a bad way at all and it seems to hold together when logic says it really shouldn't. A must try.
