Mocha Java by Green Mountain Coffee Review |
Roast: Medium Review Date: January 2010
Origin: Yirgacheffe region, southern Ethiopia; eastern Java. Price: $9.49/12oz

Blind Assessment: Delicate but rich. Distinct milk chocolate notes and hints of butter and apricot-like fruit in aroma and cup; a suggestion of earth in the cup. The chocolate carries into a clean, sweet-toned finish.

Notes: This version of the ancient Mocha-Java blend combines a genuine Java from the government estates of East Java with a delicate wet-processed Yirgacheffe from Ethiopia. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles, including this blend.

Who Should Drink It: A mildly earth-toned Java and a delicately sweet Yirgacheffe net a surprisingly distinct, apricot-toned chocolate sensation in this elegant version of the Mocha-Java blend.
