“Mocha” coffee from the Yemen and Ethiopia is fruity, with a lively acidity that many find overpowering whilst Java is full-bodied, smooth with dark Cocoa notes.
The origins of this blend are believed to have begun over 400 years ago with "Mocha" from the Yemen and Ethiopia. As many Europeans found this overpowering it was combined with Java to create a smoother experience.
Our take on this timeless Dutch classic has Colombian, Kenyan and Ethiopian as its main components. This Mocha Java is a superb full-bodied coffee, rich and earthy yet with a zesty acidity - a perfect timeless blend.
Coffee has been grown in Kenya since 1893 when it was first introduced. The total area under coffee is estimated at 160,000 hectares, about one third of which is the plantation sector with an estimated 700,000 growers working the rest on small-holdings. Kenyan AA coffee is Kenya's premium grade of coffee and is simply a measure of the size, weight and shape of the bean.
