Blind Assessment: Richly sweet, floral-toned. Freesia, tangerine zest, plum, cedar, a hint of marjoram in aroma and cup. Sweet in structure with high-toned, citrusy acidity; full, satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The savory-sweet finish leads with sweet herb notes followed by spicy florals.
Notes: Yirgacheffe coffees like this one are largely produced from traditional Ethiopian landrace varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. A wet-processed or “washed” coffee 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, spice-toned cup centered around floral and citrus notes with undertones of sweet garden herbs.
