Blind Assessment:

Strikingly rich, spice-toned. Sandalwood, tangerine, vanilla and cocoa in aroma and cup. Bright, fruity acidity; syrupy, yet levitatingly buoyant mouthfeel. Spicy, richly drying finish redolent of vanilla and sandalwood.


Produced by Gloria Rodriguez entirely from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica. This is a wet-processed or “washed” coffee, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting and before drying. JBC Coffee Roasters was founded in 1994 as Johnson Brothers Coffee Roasters and is a family-owned specialty coffee roastery located in Madison, Wisconsin. 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.
