Blind Assessment: Elegant, delicately aromatic, floral. Honeysuckle, cocoa nib, pink peppercorn, red plum, pomelo in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart with juicy, balanced acidity; plush, syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Floral- and cocoa-toned finish.
Notes: Yirgacheffe coffees like this one are largely produced from traditional Ethiopian landrace varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a wet-processed or “washed” version (fruit skin and flesh 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.

The Bottom Line: A complex, enticingly subtle washed Ethiopia cup laden with spicy floral, sweet stone fruit, and rich cocoa notes.
