Jasmine- Botanical Art
Jasmine- Botanical Art

A very positive and intensely floral quality in coffee, usually with a strong aromatic component, reminiscent of jasmine flower or tea. There are many forms of jasmine; the common flowering vines, teas, potpourri, etc.

Jasmine is a classic, perfume-like floral scent. Unlike tea that is actually dried with jasmine blossoms, coffee with hints of jasmine comes from other aromatic compounds that the human olfactory perceives as jasmine flowers.

Jasmine scents can be found primarily in some wet-processed Ethiopian coffees. It is sometimes found in some other Ethiopia cultivars grown in other countries. We have had slight hints of jasmine from some Central American coffees, and some Colombia wet process coffees too. But mostly it is found in some Ethiopian lots.
