Complete; delicately sweet and intricately structured. Tart, juicy acidity; buoyant, syrupy mouthfeel. Lemon zest, almond, butterscotch, rosemary flower in aroma and cup. Zesty, bittersweet finish in the short with a subtle flourish of spicy flowers in the long.
Maracaturra is a cross between the workhorse compact-growing variety Caturra (itself a mutant of the heirloom Bourbon) and the rare, huge-beaned Maragogipe, making it a parallel variety to the better-known Pacamara, a cross between Maragogipe and Pacas (also a mutant selection of Bourbon). This is a wet-processed or “washed” coffee, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting and before drying. Beneficio de Cafe Santa Lucila was the first wet/dry mill in the Nueva Segovia region, established in 1960. It is owned and operated by the three generations of the Paguaga family. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot coffees and espressos from Hawaii and other premier coffee growing regions. The company prides itself on quality and freshness, craft-roasting coffees in small batches only after orders are placed. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
