Blind Assessment:

Rich-toned, chocolaty, exquisitely balanced. Chocolate fudge, pink grapefruit zest, cherry, sandalwood, narcissus in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with bright, juicy acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to notes of chocolate fudge and citrus-toned sandalwood.

Notes:

Produced at Finca San Sebastian mainly from the respected Catuai variety of Arabica and processed by the wet, or washed, method. Jackrabbit Java selects the finest coffees from around the world and roasts them in Thermopolis, Wyoming’s mountain air. All Jackrabbit Java coffees are specialty-grade and roasted to order.

The Bottom Line: A resonant expression of the traditional Panama washed cup, driven by deep chocolate notes supported by subtle but persistent sweet floral tones. A bargain at $12 for 12 ounces.
