Jeremiah's Pick Coffee
Mocha Java Blend
|Roaster Location:||San Francisco, California|
|Review Date:||September 1998|
Blind Assessment: An extraordinarily clean, elegant Mocha-Java. The contribution of the two Ethiopian coffees is brightly fruity, floral and exhilaratingly fresh. The Java mostly stays out of the way, contributing a slight pungency to balance the Ethiopias' high-toned sweetness. The light body could be taken as a fault, but I found it more exhilaratingly weightless than disappointingly thin.

The traditional Mocha-Java blend combines a robustly fruity Yemen Mocha with a mellow Java. Often substituted for the Yemen is Ethiopia Harrar, a dry-processed coffee similar to Yemen in character but lighter-bodied. This Jeremiah's Pick variation on the
Who Should Drink It : Adventurers with subtle palates. People who wear pressed khakis.
