About product

This type of Maragogype coffee is distinguished by extra-large coffee beans. They are up to 40% larger than common Arabica varieties and are commonly known as “elephant beans”. Sweet aroma of honey and caramel will pass to the first notes of balanced flavours of acidity and sweetness. This will later leave a long-lasting aftertaste of spicy herbs.
Surrounded by rich nature and a favourable climate of Nicaragua, farmers are growing exquisite kind of coffee beans. Mierisch family-owned coffee plantations are constantly experimenting with different types of coffee and different processing methods. Special attention is given to each coffee plant and each berry. The plantation is characterised by high environmental care. No chemicals are allowed within the distance of 5 meters from any water source, the water itself is thoroughly cleaned and reused for wet coffee bean processing. In addition, higher trees are planted for coffee plants to have shade and protection from wind, also they provide shelter for the local wildlife. All this allows a special taste of coffee to bloom.
Due to the exceptional quality and taste, this coffee is marked as Specialty. According to the SCA it scores 83 out of 100.

What's the difference between specialty coffee beans and regular ones?

Specialty coffee includes only the world’s best-rated varieties. Who rates it and how do they do that, you wonder? Well, the rating is in the hands of certified coffee tasters. They evaluate the quality of the coffee they’re presented with based on the scale created by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA). Four criteria are assessed: origin, the appearance of green beans, the aroma of the prepared brew, and its flavour characteristics. Only coffees that end up scoring somewhere between 80 and 100 points can be rightfully referred to as “specialty”.

How does the washed processing method affect the flavour of coffee?

When using the washed process, beans are first separated from the cherries, then fermented and dried. Coffee processed in this manner acquires a particularly “clean” taste, which makes the dominant notes easier to identify. It’s often fruitier too.

Why are these beans so large? I'm afraid they might damage my bean-to-cup coffee machine.

This arabica coffee belongs to the Maragogype subspecies, which is characterised by beans that are twice as large as the regular arabica ones. They won’t damage your bean-to-cup coffee machine, so feel free to enjoy delicious brews!

    Not my favourite, but has been good to have on hand to dial in a new machine.
