Mocha-Java by Dallis Bros. Coffee Review |
  • Dallis Bros. Coffee

  • Mocha-Java

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

Blind Assessment: A rather rough ride. The first impression is complex, but not entirely pleasantly so: a hard, ropey sensation sits on the profile. Behind and around the hard center a bracing, fruity richness opens, but we never get completely out from under the hardness, which, among other things, seems to depress the sweetness in the fruit.

Notes: The first impression is complex, but the profile is somewhat rough with a hard, ropey sensation which depresses the sweetness in the fruit. This blend takes the name literally. The "Mocha" is an authentic Yemen Mocha; the "Java" a wet-processed government estate Java.

Who Should Drink It: Those who find a little discomfort makes the comfortable part of the trip more exciting.


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.
