Nicaraguan Maragogipe Light Roast
|Roaster Location:||Fort Bragg, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Matagalpa, Nicaragua|
|Review Date:||June 2000|
A coffee that requires patience. The aroma is rather flat, the cup smoothly full but inert. A pleasant chocolate sensation surprises in the finish, however, and the aftertaste is sweet, rich and long.
A pleasant chocolate sensation surprises in the finish and the aftertaste is sweet, rich and long. Maragogipe is a botanical variety of the arabica species that produces a very large bean, although this particular coffee comes from a cross of the original big-beaned Maragogipe with the compact-growing caturra. From the 1998/99 crop. Boquete
Who Should Drink It
Those who avoid drama, at least in regard to their coffee. Should please coffee drinkers who prefer smoothness to brightness, weight to acidity.
