Maragogype A Quick Note

Maragogype trees produce the world's largest coffee beans, sometimes called "elephant'" beans (not to be confused with a certain bean defect, called an "elephant ear"). This is one of the most famous Arabica typica mutations that was first discovered in the Maragogype region of Brazil's state of Bahia. Maragogype beans are grown in several countries and have become sought-after coffee for their smooth to light flavour as well as attractive appearance.

Maragogype trees are expensive to maintain, and hence their yield is low, and at the end of their productive lives, many of the trees are being replaced with more robust growths. (he, he)

We do one that comes from Nicaragua, although stock is often a problem.
