Blind Assessment: Berry- and chocolate-toned. Strawberry, baking chocolate, cashew butter, lemon zest, elm in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart with juicy acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The rich-toned finish consolidates to notes of lemon zest, baking chocolate and cashew.
Notes: Produced by Diever Galindez entirely from trees of the Pink Bourbon variety of Arabica and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed before drying). 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 lively, crisply chocolaty and sweetly berry-driven cup with a particularly poised, suavely balanced structure.
