  • Nicaraguan Maragogipe Light Roast

Roast: NA Review Date: June 2000
Origin: Matagalpa growing region, west-central Nicaragua. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: A coffee that requires patience. The aroma is rather flat, the cup smoothly full but inert. A pleasant chocolate sensation surprises in the finish, however, and the aftertaste is sweet, rich and long.

Notes: A pleasant chocolate sensation surprises in the finish and the aftertaste is sweet, rich and long. Maragogipe is a botanical variety of the arabica species that produces a very large bean, although this particular coffee comes from a cross of the original big-beaned Maragogipe with the compact-growing caturra. From the 1998/99 crop. Thanksgiving Coffee

Who Should Drink It: Those who avoid drama, at least in regard to their coffee. Should please coffee drinkers who prefer smoothness to brightness, weight to acidity.

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.
