As always, the ‘Rosmarago’ combines complex tropical fruit notes with a syrupy sweet mouthfeel. Now the third year of showcasing this atypical coffee - producer Freddy Morales has paired uniquely large beans, the Maragogype and Pacamara varietals. Maragogype is a low yield natural mutation of Typica, whilst Pacamara is a cross between the Pacas and Maragogype varieties. The larger sized bean dictates a change in roasting style. This allowing for a higher application of heat and a more uniform development, resulting in syrupy mouthfeel with a long lasting sparkling finish. We’ve been buying directly from Freddy Morales for seven years now.
Guatemalan coffees are a staple of menu, alongside another Huehuetenango local, Aurelio Villatoro & Family. We had planned on being there in March, but you...2020 happened. This enduring relationship was a comfort, knowing that we had complete faith in Freddy & Aurelio’s production, logistics and shared understanding of quality, with us being on the other side of the world. But of course, we can’t wait to get back to their part of the world.
