Wow….I just came from another amazing cupping table, and this time it was samples of Nicaraguan’s. 2008 is going to be an amazing year for coffee qualities available through Fratello. It has been a while since I’ve cupped consistently good coffees from all origins in Central and South America.
The most unique cup so far was what I tasted today. A Nicaraguan Pacamara Peaberry….A GIANT peaberry.?.?..I have never heard of this variety before today.
I gave this coffee an 89.5. The aroma on this gave hints of cinnamon, pine and a spiced orange. The cup was clean and sweet and had flavors of black bing cherry, candied cloves, licorice and molasses. Amazing. It reminded me of a really good Ethiopian or Kenyan. I’m going to do my best to get some of this for next year. Wish me luck.

Look for this coffee in 2008. You will not regret trying this estate.
