Mocha/Java styles are created by blending beans from particular regions and then roasting in a certain manner to achieve nice chocolate notes and lingering after-taste.
At different times of the year, we may alter the blending components of the Mocha coffee to suit the prevailing crop characteristics.
The origin Mocha formula dates back to the origins of coffee when it was only found (or readily available) in Africa and the Dutch East-Indes trading routes that passed Indonesia.
Early roasters discovered that taking a low-acid, thick bodied coffee like the Sumatran and then mixing it with a higher acid, sweeter Ethiopian that the combination of chocolate infusion was highly beneficial and a greater flavor spectrum was created compared to the individual beans.
Those early blending styles produced a classic, timeless blend that customers absolutely love for it's rich, creamy, smooth, sweet lingering finish.
Sumatran coffee have been an important part of our Mocha blend for more than a decade.
However, Sumatra has been a challenging origin to source for quality coffees over the last 5 years.
Each year it seems to get worse as demand for Sumatrans coffees well exceeds supply.
We have re-engineered our Mocha blend to produce a rich, sweet and pleasant tasting cup - it's now developing some lovely syrupy notes of caramel, nut and dark chocolate.
Mocha Java, or just Mocha as it is more commonly known, has been somewhat distorted in it's interpretation over the years.
The classic Mocha Java combines a low acid, thick, syrupy toffee and chocolate cup with a contrasting fruity element that lifts and cleans the palate.
When done well the Mocha will be at times complex, rewarding and amazing.
It really comes down to the raw coffees used in this blend - some seasons or crops have exceptional Sumatrans and Ethiopians, other seasons not. When both orignis are firing it's nothing less than sensational.
