Maragogype, the elephant bean

The largest coffeebean in the world. The Elephant bean or Maragogype is grown in Guatemala and has a distinct flavor, because it's so large it needs a different roasting. The bean on the right is a "regular" Arabica bean.

This bean is popular in Belgium and Germany and not really well known in the Netherlands. Smooth taste like Kopi Luwak, only much cheaper.

(Background is a Zippo lighter by the way for comparison as well)
