Papa Nicholas Coffee
Mocha Java Blend
|Roaster Location:||Batavia, Illinois|
|Coffee Origin:||Yemen or Harrar region of Ethiopia; Java, Indonesia|
|Review Date:||July 2005|
The aroma is very sweet in impression, gingery and orange-toned, the acidity gentle, the cup delicate but rich with a ginger-toned fruit that rounds and settles toward chocolate as the cup cools. Clean, chocolate-toned finish.
Mocha Java is the world's earliest blend, originally combining acidy, fruity coffee from southern Arabia (now Yemen) shipped through the port of Mocha with fuller-bodied, lower-toned coffee from Java. Contemporary versions may replace the Yemen with the very similar cupping Ethiopia Harrar or the Java with a Sumatra. Papa Nicholas is a large specialty coffee roaster with an impressive array of single-origin and blended coffees. It claims to be the Chicago area's leading retail packaged gourmet coffee distributor.
