Quietly rich, savory-sweet. Vanilla, dark chocolate, black sage, tart raspberry, sweet butter in aroma and more pungently in the cup. Tart but richly rounded acidity; smooth, lively mouthfeel. The finish is crisp with aromatic black sage in the long.
Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya continues to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. This sample consists entirely of peaberries, a kind of bean that results when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different (often better) cup than normal beans from the same crop, from which they may or may not be separated during grading. 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.
Who Should Drink It
A rich, savory-edged variation on the great Kenya profile.
