Maragogipe from Finca Buenos Aires, which placed 1st in the Cup of Excellence in 2015, is a rare coffee due to its very low yields and susceptibility to leaf rust. It does though have an exceptional cup quality making this a very special find for us. The fairly long 60 hour anaerobic (without oxygen) natural fermentation really brings out flavours of tropical fruits and a jammy mouthfeel.
