Nicaragua Buena Vista
|Roaster Location:||Toronto, Canada|

|Review Date:||November 2004|
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.
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
