Coffee Review - Nicaragua Cinco De Junio by Johnson Brothers Coffee
Roast: Light Review Date: July 2011
Origin: Las Sabanas, Nicaragua Price: $12.95/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Floral notes in aroma and cup anchored by hints of fresh-cut fir and citrus. Delicately crisp acidity; silky mouthfeel. Aromatically simple but deep, sweet-toned finish.

Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown and certified Fair Trade, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. The award-winning Cinco De Junio cooperative sees organic specialty coffee as the key to the development of its communities and the communities where Cinco de Junio’s members live and grow their coffee.

Who Should Drink It: Crisp, sweet-toned lighter-roasted coffee with fine floral notes and excellent environmental and social credentials.
