Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: August 2011
Origin: Jinotega, Nicaragua Price: $10.99/12 ounces
Fine structure and balance throughout. The quietly complex aromatics – orange, nut, fresh-cut fir, lavender-like flowers, caramel – are pleasing and persistent, but the excellence of this coffee resides above all in its fine structure – sweet-toned acidity, silky mouthfeel, long, perfectly clean, flavor-saturated finish.

Roast: Medium Review Date: August 2011
Origin: Jinotega, Nicaragua Price: $17.25/16 ounces
Big, intense dried-in-the-fruit profile. Berries, brandy, port wine, dark chocolate, cedar, cocoaish chocolate. Gently bright acidity; lively, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The aromatics simplify and the mouthfeel tightens very slightly in the finish, but overall an exciting, flamboyant coffee with very little downside to the sweet, fruit-enhancing ferment.

A darkish roast develops roasted nut, cedar and buttery chocolate notes in aroma and cup. Quiet, roast-rounded acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Chocolate carries into a sweet, slightly drying finish.
