  • Las Chicas Del Café

    London, Ontario, Canada
  • Don Rey's Natural Prep Bourbon

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: November 2010
Origin: Nicaragua. Price: CAD $15.00/16 oz.

Blind Assessment: Deep-toned, rich coffee with distinct dark chocolate and raisiny aromatic wood notes in aroma, cup and finish. Roast-muted acidity, fullish mouthfeel, dark-chocolaty finish. The cup simplifies a bit as it cools.

Notes: This is a dried-in-the-fruit or “natural” coffee produced from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica. Las Chicas del Café is a Canadian-based roaster specializing in coffee from the family-owned farm AromaNica Coffees in Nicaragua. Visit or call 519-652-3642 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who drink their coffee hot and prefer pungent, dark chocolaty depth to citrusy brightness.


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.
