Scientific name: Coffea arabica L var. maragogipe A. Fern. Ex A. Frohner
Maragogipe is a type of arabic affair, also known as Elephant Coffee Beans.It is believed that this coffee is the result of a spontaneous mutation of Arabica coffee that occurred in Maragogipe, Bahia in Brazil .Maragogipeis a very big coffee bean compared to other Arabica coffee beans. It is also called Elephant Bean.
The consistency is porous. Maragogipe coffee’s taste varies depending on the soil it grows in. Our Maragogipe is grown in Brazil’s best coffee districts in Minas Gerais.
The flavor is improved by letting these coffee beans dry with the natural sugars of the coffee brewer. Maragogipe is a rarity in the coffee world, and it is appreciated by coffee lovers.
We have probably purchased what is available from Maragogipe from Minas Gerais. Because it is very rare, the price is obviously higher than more common Arabica coffee beans.
