Starbucks Reserve® Nicaragua Maracaturra

Starbucks Reserve® Nicaragua Maracaturra

A complex coffee big on flavor.

The Maracaturra coffee tree is a rare sight – but one that is immediately recognizable by large leaves and coffee flowers.

Perhaps that size is a hint to the big, complex flavors locked within: enticing florals layered with allspice and clove complement a bright acidity and a creamy, vanilla mouthfeel.

The trees that bore this amazing coffee were nurtured on the Cafetalera Buenos Aires farm in Dipilto, Nicaragua, a place where sustainable farming practices combine with fertile soil, high altitude and perfect microclimate.

The Maracaturra is a rare hybrid of more common Maragogype and Caturra varietals, making this coffee exactly the kind of seldom-seen discovery we can bring you through Starbucks Reserve® coffees.
