Coffee Review - Nicaragua Bourbon City Roast by Las Chicas del Cafe
  • Las Chicas Del Café

    London, Ontario, Canada
  • Nicaragua Bourbon City Roast

Roast: Medium Review Date: December 2011
Origin: Madrid Department, Nicaragua Price: $15.00/16 ounces

Blind Assessment: Soft, round, balanced. Quiet aroma: almond, apricot. In the cup complicates and deepens: honey, ripe lemon, cocoaish chocolate, continued almond and apricot. Crisp, juicy acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor carries persuasively into a sweet-toned finish.

Notes: This coffee is made up entirely of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica. Las Chicas del Café is a Canadian-based roaster specializing in coffee from their family-owned farm and mill AromaNica Coffees in Nicaragua. Visit or call 519-652-3642 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Exemplary example of the balanced, round, quietly deep-toned cup for which Nicaragua is particularly admired. Perhaps the finely balanced acidity and complex aromatics can be attributed to the heirloom Bourbon cultivar.


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.
