Susan's Coffee and Tea
Mocha Java, Harrar Style
A clean but slightly oppressive hardness or astringency dampens the fruity Mocha-Java richness. A touch of carbon. The background fruitiness pleasantly hints at chocolate in the finish.
The fruity Mocha-Java richness is dampened by a clean but slightly oppressive hardness. A touch of carbon, finishing with hints of chocolate. A dry-processed Ethiopia Harrar and an estate Java. This particular formula uses a bit more Ethiopia than Java, which is unusual. Typically the proportions in a Mocha-Java are either equal or lean toward the Java.
Who Should Drink It
Complexity but not much balance: sounds like some folks I used to argue politics with at the local cafe. Another profile that puts excitement before serenity.
