Jesus Mountain Estate
|Roaster Location:||Stockton, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Segovia growing region, Nicaragua|
|Review Date:||August 2004|
Deep, rich, quietly complex aroma, with hints of cherry-toned fruit, chocolate, and leather. Loses its smile and turns quite serious in the cup, with a fullish body and powerful but sweet acidity. Once past the aroma, little nuance.
This coffee, named for the Serro de Jesus mountain overlooking the farm, is produced entirely from trees of the classic Bourbon variety of Arabica. An interesting story, Jesus Mountain Estate is a venture operated by three American friends, one of whom oversees the farm in Nicaragua while the other two operate a coffee shop and roastery in Stockton, California.
