Coffee Review - Nicaragua Santa Teresa by Cafe Grumpy
  • Cafe Grumpy

    Brooklyn, New York
  • Nicaragua Santa Teresa

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: August 2011
Origin: Nueva Segovia growing region, Nicaragua. Price: $16.00/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: A deep, rich, intense acidity dominates the profile. Complex lemon-and-orange citrus, fresh-cut fir, ripe tomato in aroma and cup. Impressively rich, syrupy mouthfeel. Clean, dry finish.

Notes: This offering from Santa Teresa, Luis Joaquin Lovo's farm, consists of Caturra and Yellow Catuai varieties of Arabica. An integral part of New York’s coffee renaissance, Brooklyn based Café Grumpy opened its first café in 2005 and has since expanded to four locations, including their own roasting facility. Visit or call 718-349-7623 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy grandly acidy, big-bodied medium-roasted coffees.


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.
