Blind Assessment: Delicate, richly aromatic, complex. Tangerine zest, cocoa nib, guava, marjoram, jasmine in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with zesty-bright acidity; silky, vibrant mouthfeel. The finish leads with notes of guava and tangerine zest, rounding to cocoa and marjoram in the long.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from distinctive landrace Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a wet-processed or “washed” version, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting and 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 nuanced, multi-layered washed Guji cup with deep aromatics that lean toward citrus and sweet herbs, balanced and deepened by cocoa tones throughout.
