Blind Assessment: Soft, deep, crisply chocolaty. Baking chocolate, pistachio, black cherry, candied pecan, a hint of black peppercorn in aroma and cup. Roundly sweet-savory in structure; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Pecan in particular carries into a quiet, layered finish.
Notes: Produced by small-holding farmers with the support of Caravela Coffee, an innovating exporter-importer working in eight Latin-American countries. Processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). 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 : A big-bodied Colombia driven by crisp chocolate and nut intrigue rounded by cherryish fruit.
