Arabian Mocha Java
My friend, and black apron coffee master, Jonny Ross gave me a bag of the holy grail of coffee, Arabian Mocha-Java yesterday. A blend of Yemen and Java coffees, this exotic combination creates a balance of soft spice, smooth body and a slight berry aroma. It is apparently the first ever blend, made by Dutch 17th Century coffee traders. It has virtually no aciditiy at all, making it smooth, but with a voluptuous body. Apparently it’s great. I have yet to open the beans and stick them in my grinder, but I plan to later on today. Thanks Jonny.
