Celebrate our 25th Anniversary with us by enjoying our limited-edition Coffee With Purpose Collection.
For this collection, we sourced specially grown maracaturra coffee beans from expert grower – and our long-time partner – Byron Corrales in Matagalpa, Nicaragua.
The coffee was processed in three different ways (washed, natural and honey processed) to create three distinctive experiences that allow you to appreciate the nuances that each process imparts on the coffee.
Coffee With Purpose Collection Includes:
- 1 x Legado - Maracaturra Washed 4oz
- 1 x Momento - Maracaturra Natural 4oz
- 1 x Porvenir - Maracaturra Honey 4oz
- BONUS: 1 x Reusable CARE Cup 16oz
Legado - Maracaturra Washed Process
Tasting Notes: Brown sugar, black tea, orange blossom.
The element that sets washed, natural and honey processed coffee apart from one another is how much coffee cherry is left on the bean while it dries. In the case of washed coffee, all of the coffee cherry is removed from the bean before it is set out to dry in the sun. With this approach, the true character of the origin, growing conditions and processing is revealed. These coffees are typically sweet and balanced, with notes of chocolate, nuts and even some subtle fruit or floral notes.
Momento - Maracaturra Natural Process
Tasting Notes: Cocoa, black cherry, rose.
In contrast to a washed coffee, naturals are dried with the coffee cherry left entirely intact on the bean. These coffees are dried on raised beds which aid in ensuring even and thorough drying of the coffee. In the case of these massive Maracaturra beans, the drying stage will take 21-25 days depending on weather conditions. During this time, the coffee cherry infuses the beans with intense fruit notes and dynamic character that is emblematic of natural coffees.
Porvenir - Maracaturra Honey Process
Tasting Notes: Roasted almond, dark chocolate, dried fig.
Honey processed coffee lands right in the middle of washed and natural processed coffee. Most of the cherry is removed from the beans with a thin layer of the cherry meat called “mucilage’’ left on for the drying stage. This thin coating of fruit matter turns dark in colour and sticky as it dries, hence the name “honey processed.” While no honey is added to the coffee, they do have lovely sweetness to them, with fruit notes more subtle than those typically found in natural coffees.
