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.

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!

I love this coffee, unfortunately my latest batch was way over-roasted. Shame, this is the first time this has happened to me since i've been a customer.

This is a different type of mocha-java than I was expecting but this is the real deal. The flavor and freshness has lasted me to the end of the bag of whole beans I ordered. This is my #2 coffee roast thus far. I am eventually going to try the arabian mocha sanani and am curious to see if the higher price is worth it. I would still love it if Peets would bring the Ethiopian Supernatural to everyone year round.....:)

Peet's continues to show me their skills at making coffee. This coffee is fantastic and consistently to provide great flavor. The mocha flavor enhances the coffee the right way and can be drank at and time. it is flavorful without bitterness and high acidity.

Love this naturally chocolatey coffee. Nothing bitter or sour here. Just sweet coffee goodness without any additives. Would love to try it in an medium roast.
