Mocha Java Coffee Blend by Brooklyn Roasting Company
12 oz. can
Composed of: Sumatra Permata Gayo and Ethiopia Yirge Cheffe
Mocha, “the world’s original commercial coffee”, is named after the Yemeni port of Mokha, or al-Mukhā, where beans from across Eastern Africa were traded and exported. At that time Yemen controlled most of the trade moving between the Arab world and the Indian Ocean, and also received beans from Java, an Indonesian island recently colonized by the Dutch, who had introduced coffee cultivation. Inevitably, these two coffees came together to form the world’s first blend. BRC’s twist on this centuries-old classic combines a dark-roasted bean from Sumatra, a little further north along the Indonesian archipelago, with a washed heirloom Arabica from the mountains of Ethiopia, the birthplace of coffee.
Both Sumatra Permata Gayo and Ethiopia Yirge Cheffe Coffees are Fair Trade Certified.
