Roast: Medium Review Date: November 2004
Origin: Nueva Segovia growing region, Nicaragua Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Low-key and rich. In the aroma fresh-cut cedar and caramel, with a shimmer of crisply temperate fruit, pear perhaps. In the cup the low-toned acidity is sweet, the mouthfeel round. The cup is a bit monotoned when hot, but as it cools it opens up beautifully, revealing a deep, black-cherry-toned fruit. The finish is slightly heavy.

Notes: A prize winner in the 2004 Nicaragua Cup of Excellence competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed twenty-seventh out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 84-plus from an international jury. Produced from trees of the caturra variety of arabica on the Buena Vista farm at a growing altitude of approximately 4,400 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: Those who prefer the feel of corduroy to silk.


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.
