  • Nicaragua La Union

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: February 2003
Origin: Central Nicaragua. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Relatively light roasted but deep toned, with big body, rich, cabernet-like acidity, and a black-cherry fruit that saturates the profile from bottom notes to top. Timothy's Director of Coffee Bill Herne praises its "complex flavor and sweet finish."

Notes: La Union is a farm and mill near Las Sabanas, Nicaragua. Its coffee is grown under native- species shade at elevations above 4,300 feet. Timothy's is a Toronto-based, quality-oriented specialty coffee chain with locations in Canada, the United States and Europe. Visit or call 888-937-6278 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of dry, full-bodied red wines. Medium-roasted but low-toned and full-bodied, this coffee should constitute a superb foil for rich 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.
