Nicaragua La Bendicion Maracaturra Natural

Nicaragua La Bendicion Maracaturra Natural

Light Roast

We have featured many coffees from Luis Alberto Balladarez over the past 4 years, but this is the first time offering his Maracaturra Natural! This comes from his farm La Bendicion, a neighboring farm to Un Regalo de Dios where we get the Yellow Catuai Natural from. Maracaturra is a cross between Maragogype and Caturra, and this variety is unique to Nicaragua and El Salvador. We find this cup profile to be quite unique with notes of tamarind, plum pulp, and chocolate.

The Story Behind the Coffee

Finca La Bendicion is located in the Dipilto-Jalapa mountain range in the Northeast of the department of Nueva Segovia. In total, the farm is 252 acres, with around 105 acres planted in coffee. Luis Alberto Balladarez grows a wide selection of varieties: Caturra, Red Catuai, Hybrids, Villa Sarchi, Pacamara, Maracaturra, H-3, Marselleza, SL-34 and Java. The farm has a rich biodiverse environment of fauna and flora, with an abundance of broad-leaved trees and conifer species. The care and processing that goes into every lot that is processed in this farm is second to none, with careful detail at every stage, starting with optimal cherry picking at the farm level. Washed coffees are dried for between 20-25 days, honeys 20-25 days and naturals, between 30-35 days! Luis Alberto has placed many times in the Cup of Excellence competition.... he is no stranger to producing exceptional coffees. This is our fourth year roasting coffees from Luis Alberto Balladarez and his coffees are always quite the treat.
