    East Providence, Rhode Island
  • Organic/Fair Trade Nicaragua Segovia

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

Blind Assessment: Deeply roasty in the aroma with grapefruit top notes and apricot and spicy chocolate undercurrents. In the cup sweet and complexly rich with chocolate and a caramelly fruit. A slight sharpness in the cup turns distinctly astringent and bitter in the finish.

Notes: Certified organically grown and Fair-Traded, meaning the farmer was paid a formula-defined "fair" price for his coffee. New Harvest is a quality-oriented specialty roaster specializing in Fair-Trade coffees. Visit or call 866-438-1999 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who add a bit of milk and sugar to the cup may value the balancing edge of bitterness in this otherwise fine and characteristic Nicaragua.


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.
