|Review Date:||August 2004|
Lovely, lyric coffee. Distinct apricot and milk chocolate notes in the aroma. In the cup sweet, balanced, with a delicate acidity lifting on rich undercurrents of bittersweet chocolate and apricot-toned fruit. For such a lyric coffee the finish is surprisingly long and bracing.
Matagalpa is one of the classic growing regions of Nicaragua. Certified organically grown and Fair-Traded, meaning the farmer was paid a formula-defined "fair" price for his coffee. Kaffe Magnum Opus is a roaster, wholesaler and Internet retailer of quality specialty coffee. Visit
