Nicaragua Los Vasques by Stone Cup Roasting Review |
  • Stone Cup Roasting

    Chattanooga, Tennessee
  • Nicaragua Los Vasques

Roast: Medium Review Date: December 2006
Origin: Madriz growing region, Nicaragua Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Crisply acidy but big-bodied and lavishly chocolate-toned. Vanilla bean complicates the chocolate in the finish. A tactful match of roast to coffee.

Notes: A prize winner in the 2006 Nicaragua Cup of Excellence competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed eighth out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 87.48 from an international jury. Produced from trees of the Caturra variety at an elevation of approximately 4,000 feet on the Luis Alberto Vasquez farm. Stone Cup Roasting is a quality-oriented, boutique roasting company in the reviving and attractive city of Chattanooga. Visit or call 423-265-5010 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Voluptuaries with an austere streak.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
