Blind Assessment:

Delicate, rich-toned. Lemon verbena, honeysuckle, cocoa powder, cedar, green grape in aroma and cup. Lively, juicy acidity; crisp, satiny mouthfeel. The sweet, resonant finish is redolent of citrusy herbs and sweet flowers supported by cocoa tones.

Notes:

A blend of coffees from Africa, South America and Central America. This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade certified, the latter meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a “fair” or economically sustainable price. JBC Coffee Roasters’ vision is simple: “let the coffee lead the way” through sourcing and roasting the best and most unique coffees available and rewarding the farmers who grow those coffees with substantial premiums.

The Bottom Line: A fine but affordable blend characterized by both its sweet delicacy and rich depth.
