Blind Assessment:

Richly sweet-tart, high-toned. Cacao nib, pie cherry, lilac, cedar, nougat in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with juicy, vibrant acidity; crisp, velvety mouthfeel. The resonant finish centers around notes of tart stonefruit and cacao nib.


Coffees from the Yirgacheffe region are produced from distinctive, largely indigenous Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Like most southern Ethiopia coffees, this coffee is produced by villagers on small garden plots interplanted with food and other subsistence crops. Processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed 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 coffee for those who like their washed Ethiopias high-toned and tart-leaning, with an abiding cocoa- and floral-toned sweetness throughout.
