Yemen Mocha Mattari – Green
|Review Date:||May 2000|
Blind Assessment: This rather wild coffee attracted a split vote. The chocolate-toned aroma impressed some panelists, but the cup turned rather rough and harsh as it cooled. Positive descriptions of aromatics ranged from fruit to chocolate. Negative or neutral: earthy, tobaccoey, "beef broth."
Notes: A rather wild, chocolate-toned cup that turned rather rough as it cooled. "We Bring the World to Every Cup" is the motto of InterAmerican Commodities, a distinguished green coffee dealer founded in 1983 and headquartered in Houston, Texas. Originally the market name Mattari described either coffee from the Bani Mattar district
