A remarkably pure profile for this dried-in-the-fruit coffee type. Lush but delicate aroma: jammy blackberry, cocoa, ripe orange, a hint of cedar. In the cup sweet-toned acidity, lightish body, and a juicy, complex flavor: the cocoa notes move forward, supported by a round, berryish fruit that reads at various moments as red table grape, blackberry, blueberry, ripe orange. The clean, berry-saturated finish fades quickly but pleasingly.
Certified organically grown. A dry-processed or "natural" coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or "washed" coffees. Yirgacheffe, from a lush range of hills in southern Ethiopia, produces some the world's most distinctive coffees. JBC Coffee Roasters (formerly Johnson Brothers Coffee Roasters) is a distinguished small-batch roasting company. Visit www.jbccoffeeroasters.com or call 608-256-5282 for more information..
