Green Mountain Coffee
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Yemen or Harrar region of Ethiopia; Java, Indonesia|
|Review Date:||February 2007|
Sweet, deep aroma with considerable intrigue: an herby, mentholated lemon, a hint of earth, distinct butter notes. In the cup softly acidy, silky in mouthfeel, voluptuously delicate yet subtly brusque, with cocoa notes and perhaps a continuing hint of butter. The finish is rich and sweet.
Mocha Java is the world's earliest blend, originally combining acidy, fruity, dry-processed coffee from southern Arabia (now Yemen) shipped through the port of Mocha with fuller-bodied, lower-toned, wet-processed coffee from Java. Contemporary versions may replace the Yemen with the very similar cupping Ethiopia Harrar. The essence of the Mocha Java blend is harmonious contradiction, a theme well-supported by this version. Keurig/Green Mountain, formerly Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, pioneered single-serve capsule brewing in the United States with its Keurig brewing system, and remains one of the country’s leading large specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.
