Allegro Coffee Roasters
Nicaraguan Segovia Organic
|Roaster Location:||Boulder, Colorado|
|Review Date:||November 1998|
Blind Assessment: Extraordinary aroma: powerfully sweet, enveloping and complex, with tremendous dimension. Almost as impressive in the cup: Full-toned acidity softened by peach or prune, resonant and richly dimensioned, with a sweet, full, almost sugary finish complicated by hints of dry chocolate or tobacco.
Notes: An impressive, complex Latin-American style coffee with extraordinary aroma and associated cup -- full-toned acidity softened by peach, resonant and richly dimensioned, with a sweet, full finish. From a cooperative of small farms practicing organic growing methods. Shade-grown, mostly from trees of the traditional bourbon variety. Allegro Coffee is a largish but meticulous roaster specializing in both organic and conventionally grown origins.
Who Should Drink It : Anyone who likes a fine, complex Latin-America style coffee. The aroma, the fruit-softened brightness, and the intriguing dimension should make this an excellent drip-style morning coffee.
