Caturra - This natural mutation of Bourbon is the benchmark Central American coffee from which all others are measured in the region. Well-known for its rich sweetness and gentle profile, it is a well-balanced, smooth coffee. Its sweetness is complimented by a distinctive citrus acidity and pleasant cacao notes.
Parainema - A large bean with a unique cup profile that is bright, balanced, smooth with unmistakable tropical fruit notes. Other highlghts include caramel and vanilla. The coffee has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel that lingers.
Peaberry - A coffee “bean” is actually the dried seed of a coffee cherry. Normally, a cherry has 2 seeds each with their flat side facing the other. However, in 5% of coffee cherries, only one seed develops. Since there is not another seed pressing against it, it does not have a flat side but instead is a round shaped seed, or peaberry. Peaberries roast more evenly since their round shape allows them to roll around more easily. Also, peaberries are found to have more intense flavors.
