'Mokha Java' was the first blend ever created. Coffee originated in Arabia and was first sold through the port of 'Mokha' (Al Mukha) in Yemen; the 'Mokha' in this blend is an Ethiopian coffee, adding notes of fruit and cocoa. Coffee was then cultivated in Indonesia and shipped out through the island of 'Java' (Jawa); the 'Java' in this blend is an Indonesian coffee, which gives deeper tones of earth and spice. The result is a marriage between the brightness of Africa and the depth of Indonesia - in the cup it is a very dynamic, yet balanced, coffee.
