The name of this blend resulted from a contest held some years ago on the JBC Facebook page. Coffees composing this blend are certified organically grown and Fair Trade certified, the latter meaning the green beans were purchased from small-holding farmers at a “fair” or economically sustainable price. 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.

Who Should Drink It: Those seeking excellent value in a high-quality Fair-Trade/organic blend both elegant yet powerfully aromatic in the cup.
