Blind Assessment: Low-toned, with pungent earthy and cedary notes supporting tart citrus and strawberry. Rich acidity; syrupy but lively mouthfeel. Sweet-toned and deep in the finish.
Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair-Trade certified, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Grown and processed by the Chajulense cooperative, a group of 1,800 indigenous farmers in Guatemala's Quiché Department. JBC Coffee Roasters (formerly Johnson Brothers Coffee Roasters) is a distinguished small-batch roasting company. Visit www.jbccoffeeroasters.com or call 608-256-5282 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Lovers of red table wines that pleasingly balance fruit and oak.
