Blind Assessment: High-toned, richly sweet-tart. Mango, cocoa nib, lemongrass, cedar, narcissus in aroma and cup. Balanced, sweetly tart structure with lively acidity; syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. The long, sweetly herb-toned finish leads with lemongrass notes with undertones of crisp cocoa nib.
Notes: Produced by the METAD farm and mill in southern Ethiopia. Southern Ethiopia produces distinctive coffees from traditional landrace varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Coffees like this one processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp is removed before drying) typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity with a particular emphasis on citrus and floral notes. 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 juicy, high-toned Ethiopia cup with rich tropical fruit and lemony herb notes and a cocoa throughline.
