Blind Assessment: Sweetly and richly pungent. Green grape, caramel, walnut, apple, honeysuckle in aroma and cup. Gently and roundly tart acidity; light but distinctly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates around caramel and apple in a quiet but long finish.
Notes: Maracaturra is a relatively recently developed cross between the huge-beaned Maragogipe and the compact-growing Caturra varieties of Arabica. The El Socorro Maracaturra grown by Juan Diego de la Cerda has consistently scored in the top five in recent Guatemala Cup of Excellence green coffee competitions. Roasted at PT’s Coffee, where the motto is “without the love, it’s just coffee.” Visit www.ptscoffee.com or call 888-678-5282 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: The quiet complexity and balanced resonance characteristic of this fine hybrid variety.
