Starbucks Reserve® Maui Mokka
Maui Mokka Magnificent
I have tried virtually every Starbuck's Reserve coffee for more than 7 years now (I maybe missed 3) & this coffee is special. It's a unique coffee, just look at the size of the beans. Although last years crop was tastier I think, due to it being somewhat heavier on the brown sugar notes. This year the brown sugar is there, but with a prominent candied fruit flavor as well...& a heftier pricetag. Don't get me wrong, the coffee is delicious. I will buy this coffee whenever Starbucks offers it, I just purchased 4 bags. Unlike another reviewer said, I CAN drink this coffee every day & I'd be happy. I believe it to be one of the best. Hopefully it remains a staple, like the Kona or the Jamaica Blue Mountain.

This coffee was a bit more acidic and citrusy than I expected. I really tasted the cocoa in it. I really liked the flavorful taste of the coffee. I am such a huge coffee fan that paying this much was worth it just to try a good bag of it. However, on a regular basis, I would not buy this coffee over and over. The price it not all that worth it. And I do go through a heavy amount of different coffees each week. I am also a Starbucks barista on top of that. If you are looking for a very bold and unique coffee to try here and there, go with this coffee. You will like it. But, if you are looking for a coffee for your every day all day enjoyment, go for a coffee like Cafe Verona or Columbia Medium Roast blend. They are cocoa roasts that are smooth but with that bolder, more flavorful quality.

I love this coffee! It's my new favorite. I have really enjoyed every cup. I will defiantly buy this again. I can always count on Starbucks to have excellent choices in coffee.

An excellent roast
The Maui Mokka comes as a challenging brew. The first time I tasted this coffee, I immediately knew that it made an elegant, understated, enjoyable cup. However, I wasn't one-hundred percent convinced, and so decided to order a second and a third cup on different occasions. Both of these were unable to match the superior flavors and very low acidity of my first sampling, and so I thought the first cup must have been an anomaly. Because the Maui Mokka had been so good that first try, I decided to give it at least one more chance, and am glad I did. The super subtle complexities are meant to be savored with short sips that reveal the full nature of this roast. After at least ten cups, I have decided that for me this is a full five-star coffee. At the price point, my main wish is that it had higher consistency; however, for the bag, you'll most likely drink seven out of eight unforgettable cups of coffee; and the one that's not so good will still taste superior to most other cups you'll drink this year.
