  • Arabian Mocha Java

Roast: Dark Review Date: January 1998
Origin: Various Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A rather complex dark-roast cup. Clear carbon, but the roast was conducted with enough deliberation to preserve some richness and a touch of sweetness. The most engaging complication was in the dry center of the profile: a pruny, complex pungency that read as chocolate in the aroma. The carbon reasserted itself in the aftertaste.

Notes: A rather complex dark-roast cup, with clear carbon but some richness and a touch of sweetness were preserved. The Center of the profile was dry, pruny, complex, and pungent. Another Yemen Mocha and estate Java.

Who Should Drink It: Starbucks somewhat-carbony-dark-roast lovers who want a classic Mocha-Java. The heavyish body and dry fruitiness should make this an excellent complement for heavy desserts.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
