Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: August 2011
Origin: Nicaragua. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A darkish roast develops roasted nut, cedar and buttery chocolate notes in aroma and cup. Quiet, roast-rounded acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Chocolate carries into a sweet, slightly drying finish.

Notes: Fidalgo Bay is a wholesale and online retail specialty coffee roaster with a thoughtfully designed menu of coffees and a concise but effective personal roast profiling tool on its website. Visit or call 800-310-5540 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy simple, full-bodied, balanced darker roasts.
