This is the Nicaragua brought to you by Dillanos Coffee Roasters. Central America is known for producing some of the best coffees in the world and this Nicaragua is no exception. Nueva Segovia, the region this coffee is grown in, has been garnering praise for its quality coffees in recent years. This cup is balanced with nutty, baking spice and herbal notes.
Most Starbucks-like yet. Just wasn't good in drip, pourover, or French press.
Labeled as a medium roast, but it was quite dark for my taste. Definitely not my favorite.
This is not what I think of as a medium roast. Beans were black and very oily. I'm honestly surprised it was picked considering what my preferences were set at.
This coffee didn't have any spunk. It was a mild coffee. It was ok but it didn't suit my taste as outstanding.
Too dark for my tastes. Not sure if herbal notes and spices are the kinds of flavors I'm looking for either.
No specific notes - not as strong of a flavor as previous coffees we've had.
Very spicy and earthy. Somewhat burnt taste and very savory. I think a lighter coffee, with fruity\floral\chocolate notes will be more to my liking
least favorite so far. very acidic tasting
Good balance as its described but would like it to have a bit more flavor to it
DELICIOUS. Preferred in a french press. Dark roast with subtle intensity, makes the boldness enjoyable far past the first cup. The deepness of the flavor, a chocolate under tone, it livens the taste buds!!
We really did not prefer this roast. We could not taste any interesting flavors in it. It kind of all blended together.
The taste is too bitter, like it might have been roasted too long. The spice profile is muddled by bitterness.
My boyfriend was not a fan of this one at all. We made it in the chemex and the French press and weren't super impressed with either
My wife didn't like the spice notes. I thought it was an interesting coffee to explore.
Smooth with subtle nutty and spice, delicious
Did not enjoy this bag and most if it is still sitting in the cupboard untouched. It had a burnt flavor, reminiscent of Starbucks and a bit of ash/tobacco. Couldn't stomach it and so disappointed the whole bag is going to waste. :(
I like the richness of this coffee, but it has a sour taste.
More darkly roasted and oilier than we usually like but still very well balanced and lacking any of the over-roasted qualities I expected when I first looked at the beans. Would definitely enjoy again!
The beans were wet and I guess because it was a washed coffee, but not real sure...it seemed odd. The flavor was good

This coffee was a little to bitter for my taste. I would have to say for someone that likes something with a more spicy flavor this would be great just not what my palette likes.
Roast seems to dark while coffee brews weak. Flavor is more bitter than I like.
To be quite honest this was not my favorite. Even though it was of a darker roast it was somewhat bitter and lacked... something. Not very round or smooth and couldn't quite figure this one out. I tried playing around with the coarseness of the beans, and different brewing methods with no further success.
It has a good flavor but it has a pretty strong aftertaste... I tried using a bit less coffee but it was just washed out
This is a pretty good medium roast, but to be honest it's not something that I would ever actively seek out to purchase again.
Good, but didn't blow me away. The taste just didn't match up to the incredible aroma. I usually brew my coffee on medium but had to go "strong" to bring out the flavor in this one.
A pretty good brew that reminded me of a Guatemalan that I enjoy. Not too shabby for my first experience.
This coffee has a very mild, full body taste. It's a medium roast by all measurable characteristics. It has a very full body, with a nice earthy, nutty, undertone. I used a French press for preparation as it's not an espresso roast, nor do I have access to a Chemex at this point in time. The blend has the overall taste of a South American roast. The roast isn't perfect though, as it does have a faint muddy taste, but this could also be due to my brewing method. Overall it's a solid medium roast, however, it is by no means something I will probably order again, nor seek out.
