Maracaturra is a high yielding Brazilian hybrid of Maragogype and Caturra. It is believed to have naturally occurred in the late 1800s and is mainly found in Brazil, El Salvador, and Nicaragua. They have large sized beans and leaves. Its Caturra lineage contributes to the coffee’s taste and its high yield. It has short stature and abundant foliage which makes it resistant to wind damage.

This variety is susceptible to coffee leaf rust and hence demands a high level of maintenance. Its flavor profile includes tropical fruits and bright acidity. It is cultivated in areas which are 1400 to 1600 meters above sea level

Luis Emilio Valladarez and his family have been growing coffee for over 55 years. Their farms are located in the department of
Nueva Segovia in Nicaragua , a region known for producing excellent coffees. On their farms they experiment with different varieties, such as
Maracaturra, Java, Villa Sarchi and Geisha. Their own wet processing plant made fully-washed, semi-washed, honey, natural and Kenya
processing possible. This enables the family to create tailor-made coffees with specific cup profiles. The coffee is sundried on patios
or on African beds. Coffees from the Valladarez family are regular winners at the Cup of Excellence.
