Blind Assessment: Deeply spice-toned, singular and complex. Dried red currant, sandalwood, fresh cinnamon, dark chocolate, brown sugar in aroma and cup. Richly sweet with wine-toned acidity; viscous, full mouthfeel. The spice-toned finish is supported by notes of dark chocolate and red currant.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers in the Haraaz region of Yemen from trees of local heirloom varieties of Arabica, and processed by the natural method (beans are dried in the whole fruit). 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 deep, rich, fruit-driven, spice-framed Yemen cup, nuanced and multi-layered, with intriguingly complex aromatics.
