El Barril

Proof that you can roast very light and still develop a ton of caramelized sugar flavors, these big Maracaturra variety beans taste to us like brown butter and apricot jam, elevated by gently floral aromatics.

    Roaster’s Notes
    In years past, Passenger has proudly offered two Cup of Excellence winning lots from El Barril, a small family-operated coffee farm in the Nueva Segovia region of Nicaragua. This impeccably balanced selection from El Barril’s 2019 harvest provides a balanced and clean example of the Maracaturra variety, a natural cross of Maragogype and Caturra, that was first observed and selected in Nicaragua in the 1970’s.
