Blind Assessment: A complete but rather simple profile; decent acidity balances the pungency of the moderately dark roast. Hints of vanilla intensify and the entire profile sweetens as the coffee cools.
Notes: Large-bean maragogipe delivers a complete but rather simple profile where decent acidity balances the pungency of the moderately dark roast. Hints of vanilla and sweetness intensify as it cools. Another shade-grown coffee verified by the American Birding Association.

Who Should Drink It: Aficionados curious about the Maragogipe, a distinguished and noble tree whose very large, showy beans are sometimes more exciting to the eye than to the palate. In the cup they often lack dimension, which seems to be the case here.
