New Coffee: Nicaragua Adeprofoca Maragogype (The Elephant Bean)

[wpg width=”300″ height=”139″ align=”right”]This extra large bean (also known as “the elephant bean”) from Nicaragua offers a prolific fusion of maple, nut tones, honey and chocolate brownie combined with dried apricot in aroma and cup.
This coffee varietal is a mutation of Typica coffee (In a good way). The Maragogype coffee plant is large and is taller than either Bourbon or Typica. Production is low, but the seeds are very large. Maragogype adapts best between 2,000-2,500 feet. The cup characteristics are highly appreciated in certain coffee markets.
