Blind Assessment: Richly sweet-savory, citrus-toned. Tangerine zest, maple syrup, pistachio, rhododendron, baking chocolate in aroma and cup. Balanced structure with gentle, round acidity; full, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The quiet finish is carried by notes of baking chocolate and pistachio.
Notes: Produced by Luis Pedro Zelaya Zamora entirely of the Bourbon variety of Arabica and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). 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 quietly confident Guatemala cup produced by highly regarded Bella Carmona farm — crisply chocolaty, citrusy, richly bittersweet.
