This uncommon varietal is a hybrid of a the giant Maragogype bean with the more traditional and sweet Caturra varietal. This unique bean, via the dedication and skill of the producers of Finca El Socorro, creates a coffee that is delicate, flavorful, and sweet.
The Maracaturra varietal from El Socorro is grown around 5700 feet near the town of Palencia. After harvest the coffee is washed and processed directly on the farm.
In 2011, the Maracaturra lot won the Guatemala Cup of Excellence Competition. El Socorro has proven to be one of the best coffee farms in Guatemala year after year. In 2007, it won 1st place in the Guatemala Cup of Excellence for the first time and took 4th place in the same competition in 2008. Such consistent results made us jump at the chance to become Direct Trade partners with Juan Diego and Finca El Socorro.
