Nicaragua Organic, El Jaguar
|Roaster Location:||Thornton, Colorado|
|Coffee Origin:||Jinotega growing region, central Nicaragua|
|Review Date:||May 2004|
Deep and balanced, smooth in mouthfeel, low in acidity, rich with sweet wine- and chocolate-cherry-toned fruit and a resiny hint of cedar. Nominating reader John Outler applies the technical tasting term "Yummy!" to this coffee before continuing "Perfect intersection between dark and light [roast]. Not too bitter."
With its full body, low acidity and complex midtones, this is a classic Nicaragua. Organically grown on George and Liliana Duriaux-Chavarria's family form in the Jinotega region. Allegro Coffee, a subsidiary of Whole Foods Market, offers one of the country's largest selections of single-origin coffees. Visit
