Counter Culture Coffee
|Roaster Location:||Durham, North Carolina|
|Coffee Origin:||Segovia growing region, Nicaragua|
|Review Date:||December 2001|
The aggressive dark roast simplifies this naturally sweet, chocolaty coffee and turns it a bit monolithic. A deep-toned, dry, chocolate-nuanced roastiness dominates, relieved by only a tickle of sweetness. The finish is richly bittersweet, but hints at rubber as the cup cools.
From the Prodocoop association of small producers, this "Sabor de Segovia" is one of Counter Culture's "Sanctuary Shade Grown" line of migratory-bird-friendly coffees. Counter Culture Coffee is a leading regional wholesale roaster specializing in coffees grown in bird-friendly mixed-species shade.
Who Should Drink It
A quintessential with-milk-and-sugar coffee. The dense, bitter dark-roast character turns sweet and chocolaty in milk.
