About this Single Origin Filter Coffee
This is the second year we have bought directly from Nicaraguan producer Marvin Vargas who works with his wife Maria of a plot of land they call ‘La Esquinita’ (translating to ‘The Little Corner’).
When they purchased the farm 20 years ago, it was only 1 hectare and primarily sugar cane. Today, the entire farm is 28 hectares of which 17 hectares is coffee with a mix of Caturra, Catuai, Bourbon and Maragogype.
This particular microlot is a Maragogype. Known also as “The Elephant Bean” for it’s size, it’s a natural mutation of Typica first discovered in the town of Maragogipe, Bahia, Brazil.
