The beauty of the rare Maracaturra coffee varietal will be apparent the moment you open this bag.
Why we love this coffee
Inside are some of the largest beans you’ll ever see, comically out of proportion to what you’re used to. Yet contrary to their robust dimensions, they come from a delicate plant that requires farmer Luis Emilio Valladarez to approach cultivation with extreme care and diligence.
Luis Emilio, who began running Buenos Aires farm in 1955, got the Maracaturra seeds as a gift. He quickly realized that the awesome size and striking flavours were worth the effort, and soon became one of a small number of producers who grow Maracaturra, making it a sought-after crop. Delivering a bright, sweetly complex cup, these beans speak volumes about his outsized commitment and passion
