New Harvest Coffee Roasters
Organic/Fair Trade Nicaragua Segovia
|Roaster Location:||East Providence, Rhode Island|
|Coffee Origin:||Segovia growing region, Nicaragua|
|Review Date:||August 2004|
Deeply roasty in the aroma with grapefruit top notes and apricot and spicy chocolate undercurrents. In the cup sweet and complexly rich with chocolate and a caramelly fruit. A slight sharpness in the cup turns distinctly astringent and bitter in the finish.
Certified organically grown and Fair-Traded, meaning the farmer was paid a formula-defined "fair" price for his coffee. New Harvest is a quality-oriented specialty roaster specializing in Fair-Trade coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It
Those who add a bit of milk and sugar to the cup may value the balancing edge of bitterness in this otherwise fine and characteristic Nicaragua.
