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.

Worth Noting

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.

I have been buying different coffees online and at stores looking for the very best (Black) coffee taste. Well I found them. My wife and I love the Arabian Mocha Java and Major Dickason's. All the coffee always comes freshly Roasted. Honestly, why would I buy from anywhere else? Fresh to my door. Wow. People, theres nothing like Fresh Roasted Coffee. And the taste of these blended Coffees are the best we ever experienced. I hopefully will try others in the future. Will start the subscription service soon. It seems very flexible. And I gotta have my FRESH BLACK HOT PEETS in the MORNING. EVERY MORNING. THANK YOU PEETS.

Spice heavy. The aroma is distinctly semi-sweet chocolate while the taste is that of toasted grains. A very unique coffee that thankfully has regular availability. A must try.

I am normally a big fan of black only darker coffee that tastes like Chocolate and Expresso. I Love Peets Major Dickason, I thought no other Coffee could match. Well I still love Major Dickason coffee, but this is also Beloved so much by me. The more I drink the Mocha Java coffee, the more I just Love it. The smell of the coffee beans are so amazing. Yes now I love them both. Both are addicting black. I may subscribe soon because I love the freshness of the coffee from Peets.

The coffee is good. (Whole bean for espresso machine.) I sent my husband into the local Peet’s store (on Mill Plain & 164th in Vancouver) and they up-charged him by $7/lb! Ridiculous. Had no idea the pricing would be so different. Will order online and skip the local proprietor here, who we’ve had nothing good to say about with the exception of the coffee itself. Terrible business acumen and nonexistent customer service. So sad.

We have a Breville Espresso machine and love it. (I highly recommend the one with the grinder attached.). It’s always been a challenge finding a coffee bean that tastes as nice as the coffee bar it hails from when you aren’t using professional equipment. Peet’s has made our lives so much happier in the morning! It’s smooth, not acidic, or bitter. We love the Major Dickerson’s Blend, but I may have to rotate between it and the Arabian mocha now. You won’t regret the purchase!
