Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Caramel, almond butter, yellow plum, orange zest, cedar in aroma and small cup. Crisp, satiny mouthfeel; richly nut-driven finish. In three parts milk, almond and caramel tones commingle, supported by plum and cedar.
Notes: Produced by Luis Pedro Zelaya Zamora entirely of the Bourbon variety of Arabica and processed by the traditional 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 deep, balanced, richly nut-toned single-origin Guatemala espresso, with a sweetness and depth in the small cup that emerges even more clearly in cappuccino-scaled milk.
