Blind Assessment:

Big, musky, floral. Cocoa nib, pomegranate, lilac and Brazil nut in aroma and cup. Juicy, vibrant acidity; velvety, smooth mouthfeel. Crisp, nutty, flavor-saturated in the short finish; bittersweet and pleasantly dry in the long.

Notes:

Produced from trees of the rare Ethiopia-derived botanical variety “Gesha” or “Geisha” grown by coffee expert and educator Willem Boot and associates on his La Mula farm in Panama. With its elongated beans and distinctive floral and chocolate cup, the Gesha variety continues to distinguish itself as one of the world’s most unique coffees. This is an unusually refined example of a dry-processed or “natural” coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or “washed” coffees. JBC Coffee Roasters was founded in 1994 as Johnson Brothers Coffee Roasters and is a family-owned specialty coffee roastery located in Madison, Wisconsin. 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.

Who Should Drink It: Those who seek a dynamic, expansively structured cup with graceful balance between fruit and floral notes.
