Mocha Java without bitterness or acidity Review by Tommy T.
A good Mocha Java is a blend of the full, rich Java bean with the high notes of East Africa or Yemen beans.

This Sulawesi offering achieves that balance without the acidity or bitterness so often characteristic of blends containing the East African mix. The Sulawesi is full, rich, aromatic and smooth.

The soils of the coffee growing regions on Sulawesi are very high in iron content which likely acts as a buffering agent, modifying the alkaloids and smoothing out the flavor. The result is nutty and rich with a touch of spice in the aftertaste.

Curiously, the aftertaste seems to me to coat the tongue rather than be a function of aroma, as is often the case. (Posted on 2/21/2013)
