Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Crisply sweet, floral-toned. Molasses, plumeria, fir, date, orange zest in aroma and small cup. Full, creamy body; deeply sweet floral- and citrus-toned finish. In three parts milk, the molasses notes are amplified, as are plumeria and fir.
Notes: Coffees like this one from southern Ethiopia are produced from distinctive, largely indigenous Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). 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 pleasingly balanced natural-process Ethiopia roasted for espresso, with tropical flowers and citrus zest as primary notes, supported by a molasses-like sweetness.
