  • 1971 Nicaragua Viennese Roast

Roast: Medium Review Date: June 2011
Origin: Nicaragua. Price: CAD $14.00/16 ounces

Blind Assessment: Notes of floral-toned coffee fruit read as lemon, sweet nut and fir in aroma and cup. Tart acidity with a citrus-zest assertiveness; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The tart fruit sweetens and smoothes in a ripe, lemony finish.

Notes: 1971 is a blend of different varieties of Arabica coffee produced on the family farm AromaNica in Nicaragua. Sisters Maria Fiallos and Valeria Fiallos-Soliman founded Las Chicas del Café, a Canadian-based roaster specializing in coffee from the family farm. Visit or call 519-652-3642 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy assertively dry white table wines.


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.
