The first thing that you’ll notice about the Trader Joe’s new, limited edition Maragogype Coffee is that the name is hard to pronounce. The second thing is that the beans inside the can are enormous, at least twice the size of the average bean I see in Trader Joe’s other coffees, and very impressive to look at. They’d make great chocolate-covered coffee beans for anyone who is a fan.
The coffee itself is a medium roast, with a medium body and low-to-medium acidity. It wasn’t the most dramatic coffee I’ve ever had, but it did have a subtle caramelized sugar flavor with a hint of smokiness, kind of like the top of a creme brulee. It’s a good, balanced flavor that almost everyone will like – a huge plus if you buy coffee for a whole family – and it’s a coffee I will definitely get again, especially considering that it’s a limited edition and there is no telling how long it will be available!
