Las Moritas had humble beginnings as a tiny one hectare (2.5 acre) farm that grew tomatoes, beans and corn. Over 30 years ago, Don Higinio and his wife Doña Aura purchased this small farm and planted their first bourbón varietal coffee seeds, handed down from Don’s father. Every year, they acquired more land and continued to grow Las Moritas into the successful coffee farm it is today. 

The land that makes up the Las Moritas farm is quite diverse. It ranges from planes to hills to mountains to cliffs. The soil is different in each of these areas, which was influenced by the crop that was previously planted there. They also plant dozens of varieties throughout the farm. 

We sampled a few this year and loved them so much we purchased two different single-varietal lots. This is the yellow caturra lot, which gets its name from the yellow skin of the coffee cherry on this caturra coffee plant. There’s many different factors that can influence the flavor profile of a coffee, but let’s talk about characteristics of this caturra varietal. It’s a natural mutation of the bourbon varietal and typically produces coffees that are balanced and sweet. 

We chose this offering from Las Moritas because it’s super creamy — almost butter-like — and pleasantly sweet. Its balanced nuance will please just about any person that likes coffee, hovering right in the ‘sweet spot’ of complexity and crowd-pleasing. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself sipping on this one all day long.
