Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Expressive, confident, lyrical. Lychee, dark chocolate, star jasmine, sandalwood, Meyer lemon in aroma and small cup. Lively, creamy mouthfeel; balanced, floral- and fruit-toned finish. In three parts milk, a liquid dessert: think fine chocolate and tropical fruit.
Notes: Produced by the Nano Genji cooperative in Ethiopia’s Jimma Zone. Ethiopia coffees like this one are produced largely from local, indigenous varieties of Arabica. 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.

The Bottom Line: A washed-process single-origin Ethiopia espresso that sings both in the straight shot and in milk. Flat out poetic in its intricate harmony, and only $18.75 for 12 ounces.
