Blind Assessment: Pungent, deep-toned with raisiny, grape-like fruit and tart berry notes in aroma and cup. Quietly rich acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. The sweet, raisin-like fruit dominates in a long, resonant finish.
Notes: Composed entirely of beans from the yellow-fruited strain of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica, this coffee was produced by farmer Luis Alonso Araujo on a section of his farm Los Alpes called El Amarillo. JBC Coffee Roasters (formerly Johnson Brothers Coffee Roasters) is a distinguished small-batch roasting company. Visit www.jbccoffeeroasters.com or call 608-256-5282 for more information..
Who Should Drink It: Presumably the influence of the Bourbon cultivar gives the fruit its pungent, roundly tart, raisiny richness here. Should please those who enjoy red table wines with dry, complex fruit character.
