Blind Assessment: Richly sweet-savory. Ripe heirloom tomato, pomegranate, cocoa nib, sage, narcissus in aroma and cup. Complex sweet-savory-tart structure with elegantly bright acidity; plush, syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Long, lingering, flavor-saturated finish that foregrounds tomato, pomegranate and cocoa notes.
Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 7 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2022.Produced by smallholding members of the Gachatha Farmers’ Cooperative Society from trees of the SL28, SL34 and Ruiru 11 varieties of Arabica, and processed by the washed method. 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 lush, nuanced, deep Kenya cup, classic in its balance of sweet and savory impulses, with a tart verticality that promotes structural complexity.
