Las Chicas Del Cafe
Don Rey’s Private Reserve Bourbon, City Roast
|Roaster Location:||London, Ontario, Canada|
|Review Date:||July 2009|
Enthusiastic co-cupper Andy Newbom (89) found this deep, chocolate-leaning coffee luxurious ("sweet and heavy lidded aroma"), balanced ("all-over tongue-hugger"), and complex ("smooth and sultry dark chocolate ... with a hint of lemon/orange and a dash of florals)." Ken (88) noted a pungent fruit that definitely suggested a nut- and peach-toned dark chocolate, but found a bit less complexity than did Andy.
This coffee is made up entirely of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica. Las Chicas del Cafe is a Canadian-based roaster specializing in coffee from their family owned farm AromaNica Coffees in Nicaragua. Visit
