Las Chicas Del Café
Nicaragua Bourbon City Roast
|Roaster Location:||London, Ontario, Canada|
|Coffee Origin:||Madrid Department, Nicaragua|
|Est. Price:||$15.00/16 ounces|
|Review Date:||December 2011|
Blind Assessment: Soft, round, balanced. Quiet aroma: almond, apricot. In the cup complicates and deepens: honey, ripe lemon, cocoaish chocolate, continued almond and apricot. Crisp, juicy acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor carries persuasively into a sweet-toned finish.
Notes: This coffee is made up entirely of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica. Las Chicas del Café is a Canadian-based roaster specializing in coffee from their family-owned farm and mill AromaNica Coffees in Nicaragua. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Exemplary example of the balanced, round, quietly deep-toned cup for which Nicaragua is particularly admired. Perhaps the finely balanced acidity and complex aromatics can be attributed to the heirloom Bourbon cultivar.
