Blind Assessment: Cocoa-toned, bright and vibrant. Cocoa nib, pink grapefruit zest, pomegranate, freesia-like flowers, cedar in aroma and cup. Balanced, sweet-tart structure with juicy acidity; syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. The cocoa-toned finish is complicated by spicy floral tones.
Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 23 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2022. Produced by Don Roger and Isabel Mairena of Gold Mountain Coffee Farms from trees of the Bourbon, Caturra, Java and Pache varieties of Arabica, and processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). Joe Bean Roasters is a specialty retail and wholesale coffee roaster based in Rochester, New York. Visit www.joebeanroasters.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A balanced, sweetly bright natural-processed Nicaragua cup with tart fruit and citrus at the top and a resonant base of cocoa nib and fragrant aromatic wood.
