  • Organic/Fair Trade Nicaragua

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: August 2004
Origin: Nicaragua Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Delicately pungent, richly balanced aroma with excellent dimension and tickles of pear and chocolate. Comfortable in the cup, balanced, with an almost sugary sweetness. Caramel and chocolate undercurrents, but basically a coffee that charms with quiet completeness rather than excites with complexity.

Notes: Certified organically grown and Fair-Traded, meaning the farmer was paid a formula-defined 'fair' price for his coffee. A&E Roastery is a small-batch wholesale roaster specializing in custom roasting with an emphasis on Fair-Trade certified coffees. Visit or call 603-578-3338 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of honest, simple desserts.


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.
