Blind Assessment:

Crisply sweet, cocoa-toned. Cocoa nib, almond nougat, narcissus-like flowers, apricot, a hint of pipe tobacco in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with lively acidity; crisp, satiny mouthfeel. The long, resonant finish consolidates to notes of apricot and cocoa-toned almond.

Notes:

Produced by the ASOPAP Small Producer Association from trees of the Caturra, Bourbon, Typica and Castillo varieties of Arabica, all wet-processed. 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 solid Colombia cup, classic in its deep, balanced sweetness and cocoa throughline.
