We are constantly tinkering with and perfecting our Moka Java blend.
So delighted with the results.
Whether you spell it with a 'k' or 'ch', it does'nt really matter - just enjoy it !
Mocha is a traditional style originally created by blending together the origins from Ethiopia and Sumatra.
This was one of the earliest styles of coffee blends as Ethiopia was the birthplace (or discovery) by Kaldi the goat shepperd and Sumatra (Indonesia) was settled early by Dutch explorers.
Mocha works so well as it takes the pungent, thick, smooth, syrupy full body from the Sumatran bean and matches it with refined acidity, balance, fruit and floral aromatics of the Ethiopian.
Mocha has been with us since we started. The blend has changed based on seasonal availability of the beans, but we think that Mocha benefits from the addition of a small amount of secret bean.
This tweak is provided a greater structure and balance to what is traditionally a strong, creamy coffee.
We think you will love our interpretation of Mocha Java.
READER WARNING - SOAP BOX MOMENT
Hipsters seem to have taken over the high-end coffee movement - calling it their own. Under-roasted, sour, lemony, citrus, weak and completely un-rewarding coffee appears to dominate their agenda.
Fruit in a coffee can be a desirable feature, but PHLEEASSSE, fruit is not the be-all and end-all. Fruit coffees have a very narrow market and the sort of people who want them are not going to buy heaps of it because they "just want a taste".
Chocolate notes in coffee reign supreme for 97% of coffee lovers.
No, I'm not an old Lygon Street Relic - just a realist wanting to give my customers a memorable cup of coffee with nice, pleasing chocolate notes and a "hint" of fruit and spice.
