  • True Mocha Java

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: January 2010
Origin: Central Yemen; eastern Java, Indonesia. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A rich and chocolaty cup. In the aroma aromatic wood and roast-tinged chocolate. In the cup the chocolate rounds and sweetens with cherry tones, then turns dry and bittersweet in the finish, enlivening a mild woody flatness.

Notes: This darker-roasted version of the ancient Mocha-Java blend is a traditional one, combining a genuine Java from the government estates of East Java with a "natural" or dried-in-the-fruit Yemen. Founded in New York City in 1920, Kobricks is a family run coffee roaster with the mission of bringing "...the simple joy of specialty coffee into the daily lives of individuals."

Who Should Drink It: A geographically authentic darker roasted version of the Mocha-Java blend.
