Mocha Java Blend by Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Review | CoffeeReview.com
91
Roast: Medium Review Date: January 2010
Origin: Harrar region, eastern Ethiopia; eastern Java, Indonesia. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: Intense, complex, roughly rich cup. In the aroma lush fermented fruit, moist fresh-fallen leaves and a hint of anise-like herb. In the cup the fruit ferment turns toward a minty, herb-nuanced dark chocolate or perhaps spiced apricot, with continued undercurrents of fresh earth and moist leaves. Complex, flavor-saturated finish shadowed by a very slight astringency.

Notes: This version of the ancient Mocha-Java blend combines a genuine Java from the government estates of East Java with a "natural" or dried-in-the-fruit coffee from the Harrar region of Ethiopia that closely resembles the original Yemen Mocha component of the blend. Batdorf & Bronson is a leading wholesale quality-oriented specialty roaster with operations in both Olympia, Washington and Atlanta, Georgia.

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.
