Blind Assessment: Richly sweet-savory. Dried nectarine, dark chocolate, sassafras, narcissus, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Bright, lively acidity; very full, syrupy mouthfeel. The resonant finish centers around cocoa-toned peach notes.
Notes: Produced by Francisca and Oscar Chacon of Finca Las Lajas entirely of the SL28 variety of Arabica, and processed by the proprietary “black diamond” method, essentially a honey process with elongated drying time. 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: Dried stone fruit and floral tones carry this fascinating coffee — a traditional Kenya variety grown in Costa Rica and processed experimentally.
