  • Victorian House Concentrated Coffee

    San Leandro, California
  • Mocca Java Liquid Concentrate Coffee

Roast: NA Review Date: March 2011
Origin: Not specified, but most likely Ethiopia and either Java or Sumatra, Indonesia. All coffee of the Arabica species. Price: $5.65/16 oz. liquid concentrate
 

Blind Assessment: Difficult to assess in coffee terms, but an attractive and distinctive beverage. Sweet-toned, perfumy aroma: caramel, flowers, a hint of fruit. Delicate, wine-like acidity. The mouthfeel is light in weight but silky in texture. In the cup caramel dominates with floral and chocolate-fruit complications. Clean finish, though flavor fades rather quickly.

Notes: A liquid concentrate coffee produced by the cold water brewing method. Evaluated mixed at a ratio of 1.5 parts concentrate to 4 parts water, which appears to be a stronger formulation than suggested on the bottle. Mixed to our taste at Coffee Review and figuring on a 7- or 8-ounce cup size, each 16-ounce bottle makes about 8 servings at 70 cents per serving. Visit www.ryancoffee.com for more information.

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.
