Mocha Joe's Specialty Coffee Roasters
|Roaster Location:||Brattleboro, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed.|
|Review Date:||November 2006|
Blind Assessment: Very sweet-toned aroma with a round, banana-like fruit and hints of fresh-cut cedar, flowers, and sweet spice. Remains sweet in the cup with a sort of banana-bread molasses-and-fruit character, but the roast impact is lean and a touch bitterish. Rich short finish, slightly heavy long.
Notes: Mocha Joe's is a cafe and microroaster with an impressive line of elite single-origin coffees and a striking film-noir-nuanced logo. Visit
Who Should Drink It : Those who enjoy rich, old-fashioned fruit breads.
