Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Berry- and flower-driven, intricately sweet-tart, wildly aromatic. Ripe raspberry, wisteria, toffee, sandalwood, dark chocolate in aroma and small cup. Viscous, syrupy mouthfeel; bright, berry-toned finish. In three parts milk, a lot like eating raspberry trifle laced with chocolate.
Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 7 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2020. Produced by smallholding members of the Rungeto Farmers' Cooperative Society of the SL28, SL34, Ruiru 11 and Batian varieties of Arabica. 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 : An exceptional single-origin Kenya espresso, balanced and bright in the straight shot and decadently rich and floral in milk.
