Nicaragua Bourbon by Jesus Mountain Estate Review |
  • Jesus Mountain Estate

    Stockton, California
  • Nicaragua Bourbon

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: August 2004
Origin: Segovia growing region, Nicaragua Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Deep, rich, quietly complex aroma, with hints of cherry-toned fruit, chocolate, and leather. Loses its smile and turns quite serious in the cup, with a fullish body and powerful but sweet acidity. Once past the aroma, little nuance.

Notes: This coffee, named for the Serro de Jesus mountain overlooking the farm, is produced entirely from trees of the classic Bourbon variety of Arabica. An interesting story, Jesus Mountain Estate is a venture operated by three American friends, one of whom oversees the farm in Nicaragua while the other two operate a coffee shop and roastery in Stockton, California.

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.
