About this coffee

Coffee story

Distinctive in both flavor and appearance, Arabian Mocha Sanani grows under harsh, primitive conditions in the arid mountains of Yemen, on the Arabian Peninsula. The mocha variety of coffee favors a terrain of low bushes on barely cultivated land, and these plants sprout miraculously from spring water oases and rock-hewn terraces — where they have to struggle to produce every single coffee cherry.

The centuries-old method for rendering the beans is equally arduous. When most of the cherries are ripe, the farmers pick them all at once and dry them on rooftops and hardened-earth patios. These dried coffee cherries are then hand-milled through traditional stone wheels to remove the hulls and release the two beans inside. This timeless, organic process is what accounts for the rare and naturally wild flavors characteristic of Arabian Mocha Sanani coffee.

Although the unusually small, rounded beans are irregular in form, size, and color, they brew one of the finest cups of coffee on earth. The flavor is reminiscent of a spicy wine, with a full body and pungent, exceedingly complex aroma. Excellent on its own or blended, the unique taste is a perfect complement to almost any other coffee — especially in the classic blend with Java.

Very impressed with the coffee. It was roasted wonderfully by the staff. I purchased this online and have been wanting to try arabian coffee. I grinded it fresh which smelled very complicated. For my nose i smelt a chocolately red wine. I brewed it aeropress several different ways. Honestly this coffee is impossible to screw brewing it because its so good. To me its so smooth and light bodied. I could drink this black with no sugar. Never did i think that was possible! To me its similar to sumatra and a light bodied african coffee. Its like a sumatra but much lighter bodied. Smooth and silky. Yet has a flavor similar to some african estates. If i could afford this i would drink this year round. I really appreciated this coffee. I only hope peets could have this available all the time. Thanks peets!

I cvombine this with the Sulawesi bean for a true mocha java as my everyday coffe: lattes in the AM (a total of 4 TBLsp of the mixed) with 16 oz of of pure mountain water, but 2TBLS for 12 oz for afternoon or after dinner drinking.

First drank Peet's coffees in Utah, 1980, when introduced to French Roast by friends from CA. WOW! Love at first taste. Many good years of sampling various coffees by mail order. After relocating to Pacific NW, it seemed reasonable to explore regional roasters, which we have done for years. As roasting has been trending lighter, and to me, focus on beans from the Americas have brought more acidic coffees, I have returned a few years ago with great satisfaction to the deep roasts of Peet's, and specifically this Mocha Sanani. Nothing else like it!

this coffee has a wonderful nutty roast flavor with a dark chocolate aroma and taste; full bodied, rich, smooth and well balanced (not a highly acidic lightly roasted central American coffee).
