Timothy's World Coffee
Nicaragua La Union
|Roaster Location:||Toronto, Canada|
|Coffee Origin:||Central Nicaragua.|
|Review Date:||February 2003|
Blind Assessment: Relatively light roasted but deep toned, with big body, rich, cabernet-like acidity, and a black-cherry fruit that saturates the profile from bottom notes to top. Timothy's Director of Coffee Bill Herne praises its "complex flavor and sweet finish."
Notes: La Union is a farm and mill near Las Sabanas, Nicaragua. Its coffee is grown under native-species shade at elevations above 4,300 feet. Timothy's is a Toronto-based, quality-oriented specialty coffee chain with locations in Canada, the United States and Europe. Visit www.timothys.com or call 888-937-6278 for more info.
Who Should Drink It : Lovers of dry, full-bodied red wines. Medium-roasted but low-toned and full-bodied, this coffee should constitute a superb foil for rich desserts.
