This lot from Reynaldo Mairena is one of our top Nicaraguan coffees we tasted this year. The dry fragrance is very sweet with notes of brown sugar and toasted cocoa powder, and a hint of clove spice. Chocolate smells build with the addition of hot water, recalling the scent of Hershey's syrup. There's an underlying note of unrefined, molasses sugar as well, especially in darker roasts. The break is very sweet and with a scent of chocolate brownies. As a brewed coffee Reynaldo Maiena is delicious. It has a profile of developed chocolate flavors that rides out the long finish. There is a sweet nutty flavor too that is like marzipan. The creamy body feels nice and weighty on the pallet and lends to the diverse nature of this coffee.
