  • Nicaraguan Segovia Organic

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: November 1998
Origin: Nicaragua Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Extraordinary aroma: powerfully sweet, enveloping and complex, with tremendous dimension. Almost as impressive in the cup: Full-toned acidity softened by peach or prune, resonant and richly dimensioned, with a sweet, full, almost sugary finish complicated by hints of dry chocolate or tobacco.

Notes: An impressive, complex Latin-American style coffee with extraordinary aroma and associated cup -- full-toned acidity softened by peach, resonant and richly dimensioned, with a sweet, full finish. From a cooperative of small farms practicing organic growing methods. Shade-grown, mostly from trees of the traditional bourbon variety. Allegro Coffee is a largish but meticulous roaster specializing in both organic and conventionally grown origins.

Who Should Drink It: Anyone who likes a fine, complex Latin-America style coffee. The aroma, the fruit-softened brightness, and the intriguing dimension should make this an excellent drip-style morning coffee.


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.
