Organic Fair-Trade Mocha Java
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Ethiopia, Indonesia|
|Review Date:||April 2008|
Deep-toned and roasty in the aroma: dark chocolate, fir, floral top notes. In the cup heavy bodied, low-toned, continued dark chocolate and aromatic wood notes with the barest hint of flowers at the top. Smooths out nicely in the finish: rich, sweet, chocolaty.
Coffees in this blend are certified organically grown and Fair Trade, meaning they were purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. 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 often replace the Yemen and Java with very similar cupping coffees from Ethiopia and Sumatra. 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.
