Port of Mokha
Yemen Al Wadi
|Roaster Location:||San Jose, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Al Wadi region, Sana’a Governorate, Yemen|
|Est. Price:||$32.00/4 ounces|
|Review Date:||October 2021|
Blind Assessment: Resonantly floral and fruit-centered. Date, orange blossom, dark chocolate, agave syrup, pungent cedar in aroma and cup. Sweetly and roundly bright with deep savory-juicy acidity; plump, creamy mouthfeel. Coherent, complex, lingering finish.
Notes: Produced from the Udaini variety of Arabica and processed by the natural method (sun-dried in the whole fruit). Port of Mokha is an importer of specialty coffees from Yemen with a roasting operation in San Jose, California. Visit www.portofmokha.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A big, round, deeply resonant Yemen cup with pretty floral (think orange blossom) and date-like fruit impulses.
