    After spending my youth drinking coffees made by Italian roasters in San Francisco with secret blends and peculiar superstitions about the perfect roast, I discovered Mocha Sanaani at Peet’s in Berkeley, California, and for the next 30 years I never looked back. This coffee is distinguished by ripe tannins, what we usually call chocolaty, which makes the acidity harmonize perfectly with the big, earthy body.
    I suffered when I arrived in Chile and discovered that the roasting culture here was like that of the Italians in San Francisco – traditional, trapped in cultural ideas that prevented the flexibility to prioritize the final flavor over “the way it’s always been done”, and full of secrets and lack of information. The resulting coffees were not impressive and, if I’m fair, nothing could replace my beloved Mocha Sanaani in any case.
    Mocha Bunn changed my life in Chile. Not only is this the coffee I craved for years, but this roaster is of the highest caliber, constantly adjusting the roast to bring out the notes that favor each batch of coffee. The result is on par with the best cups of coffee I have tasted anywhere in the world.
    Without being prejudiced, Mocha Bunn’s Mocha Sanaani is the best coffee in the galaxy.

  5. Jessica Quann (verified owner)

    Delicious, fruity. The best. Choclaty.

    Happy to finally try coffee from Yemen! As a filter coffee it was very robust. Spiced and fruity with a well rounded mouth feel. As an espresso it was very rich, the deep spice flavor came through with a nice balance from a chocolate bottom note. Great coffee!

    Very different from other single origin. A full founded mouth taste that lingers A coffee to be appreciated over slow drinking. Not for fast grabbing and go! The taste changes from a touch sour at the beginning to sweet later on. Strong presence in milk based drinks as well.

    Best Coffee I ever had and had plenty. my wife doesn’t usually drink coffee but she converted because of the high quality and incredible smoothness.
    This is my second order and I am as satisfied as with the first.

  9. Jean DeBernardi

    I just tried this coffee for the first time. It’s the best coffee I’ve had in years! I’m sure I’ll be ordering it again.

  10. Olga Larionov (verified owner)

    Mokha Bunn has a great coffee selection from Yemen. Sana’ani PeaBerry is hard to find in my neighborhood. I am grateful to find it, and I am even more grateful that Mokha Bunn offers different roasting levels, especially light roast. Moreover, the customer service is amazing. We chatted online until almost midnight. Look forward to doing business with them again.
