Guatemalan Maragogype Ground Coffee
GREAT TASTE AWARD WINNER 2017
An exceptional coffee notable for its distinctively large bean, thought to enhance its stunning qualities. Notes of tropical fruit, almonds and a hint of zesty citrus. Luxury in a cup.
Maragogype is a rare find on most farms due to the limited altitude and climate ranges the plant seems to favour. In fact it was first discovered as a mutation. Large in size and considered desirable, often referred to as the ‘ELEPHANT BEAN’, the tree has exceptionally large leaves with the fruit ripening red. Our Guatemalan Maragogype grows over 1300 METRES above sea level and is sourced from the main growing regions of Coban, Huehuetenango and Antigua.
To experience this coffee at its absolute best, we recommend using one heaped dessertspoon per cup. You can experiment with this by playing with the dosage of water and coffee to suit your taste for each different blend or origin and brewing method. You can brew with filter, chemex and V60. For cafetiere add fresh water just off the boil and allow the flavour to develop for 3-4 minutes.
Great Taste Judges' commented: "Lemon zest on the front followed by fruity notes in the middle and raisin, almonds and marzipan at the end. Really enjoyable and well balanced."
