Solid, comfortable cup. Black-currant crispness and gently pungent cedar rounded by honey and a hint of chocolate in aroma and flavor. Brisk, floral-toned acidity; silky mouthfeel. Straightforward, quietly rich finish.

Who Should Drink It
Classically please-em-all holiday blend, though aficionados might find this updated version of the ancient Mocha-Java blend interesting for its blend composition. The Java, as it does in the original blend archetype, contributes a rounding base; in this case supporting a gently bright, crisply berry-toned Kenya.
