Gently pungent, nut-toned. Hazelnut, fresh-cut fir, green grape, roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Crisp, delicately lively acidity; silky mouthfeel. Balanced, quietly flavor-saturated finish, gently drying in the long.
Maracaturra is a recently developed cross between the huge-beaned Maragogipe and the compact-growing Caturra varieties of Arabica. Water Avenue Coffee is a tiny roastery nestled next to the railway in the old Industrial Southeast quarter in Portland, Oregon.
