Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Roundly and sweetly tart/pungent. Baker’s chocolate, almond, cedar, tangerine zest, wisteria-like flowers in aroma and small cup. Syrupy, full mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates in a rather dry though pleasingly chocolate- and cedar-toned finish. Crisp in three-parts milk: dry chocolate and rich floral hints.
Notes: Certified organically grown and produced by members of the the ASCI’SP cooperative from mixed varieties of Arabica. Processed by the conventional wet or “washed” method, in which skin and fruit flesh are removed from the beans or seeds before they are dried. 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 tactful medium roast nicely develops crisp chocolate and subtle floral character in this intense, big-bodied single-origin espresso.
