Blind Assessment: Deep-toned, rich coffee with distinct dark chocolate and raisiny aromatic wood notes in aroma, cup and finish. Roast-muted acidity, fullish mouthfeel, dark-chocolaty finish. The cup simplifies a bit as it cools.
Notes: This is a dried-in-the-fruit or “natural” coffee produced from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica. Las Chicas del Café is a Canadian-based roaster specializing in coffee from the family-owned farm AromaNica Coffees in Nicaragua. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who drink their coffee hot and prefer pungent, dark chocolaty depth to citrusy brightness.
