Mary Nery Marquez is a very talented producer from Marcala. After the unfortunate loss of her husband, Mary decided to take the quality of the coffees from her farm to a new level in order to
get the income necessary to help her children finish their studies. With the help of her eldest son Roger, they began to better understand the specialty coffee industry, taking advice from IHCAFE and other producers in the area. They own another three farms; La Cueva, San Francisco & La Flores.
This washed bourbon is characterised by caramel sweetness, rose floral and a stonefruit quality like ripe apricot. As it cools, this stonefruit transitions into a dried apricot and citrus peel.
Coffee beans are judged on a 100-point scoring system that assesses body, balance, uniformity, sweetness, clarity and acidity. Coffee scoring 80+ points is considered specialty coffee.
