Blind Assessment: Floral, bright, citrusy, balanced. Star jasmine, cocoa nib, tangerine zest, caramel, cedar in aroma and cup. Balanced, sweetly tart structure with lively acidity; delicate, silky mouthfeel. The finish centers around jasmine-like floral notes.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are produced from distinctive traditional Ethiopian landrace varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This lot was processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp 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.
