I've been supplying Sumatran full city roasts to a couple we know for the past year or so. Last week they sent me 3 one-pound bags of greens from Sweet Marias as a thank you. One was the Nicaraguan Co-op 22, C.O.E. winner. Very nice. Lots of body and mouth feel, slight smokey flavor with looong finish. Light nutty taste. Tom says it reminds him of a Kona. To me it is between a Mexican and Costa Rican in flavor. Someone told Tom, "this is great coffee ... if you like coffee."
Just roasted my first batch! I will be brewing tomarrow. I like long finishes! I am also wondering about the Kona connection. Many questions will be answered by tomarrows cup! Les
