How It Tastes
Full-bodied, with bittersweet chocolate overtones enhancing a rich complexity.
When these two coffees were first blended centuries ago, they were undoubtedly much different than what’s grown in Yemen and Indonesia today. Yet this combination of rich Mocha coffee from Arabia tempered with estate Java remains a popular blend around the world, even with beans from other regions now widely available. And it’s easy to see why when you taste the bittersweet chocolate flavor.
In fact, the word "mocha" became associated with chocolate because Europeans’ first experiences with cocoa, in the 17th century, reminded them of the bittersweet coffee they imported from Yemen.
As with any blend, the quality of the origin coffees is everything. And in the case of our Arabian Mocha-Java, they’re outstanding, with a full body and rich, delicious complexity.
