Arabian Mocha Java
|Roaster Location:||Seattle, Washington|
|Review Date:||January 1998|
A rather complex dark-roast cup. Clear carbon, but the roast was conducted with enough deliberation to preserve some richness and a touch of sweetness. The most engaging complication was in the dry center of the profile: a pruny, complex pungency that read as chocolate in the aroma. The carbon reasserted itself in the aftertaste.
A rather complex dark-roast cup, with clear carbon but some richness and a touch of sweetness were preserved. The Center of the profile was dry, pruny, complex, and pungent. Another Yemen Mocha and estate Java.
Who Should Drink It
Starbucks somewhat-carbony-dark-roast lovers who want a classic Mocha-Java. The heavyish body and dry fruitiness should make this an excellent complement for heavy desserts.
