Our featured blend for September is Mocha Java. This blend has a fascinating history. Long story short, the port of Mokka in Yemen was the first place coffee was taken for export, and the Dutch were the first to transplant coffee seedlings into their colonies in the East Indies….notably, the island of Java. These were the only two places in the world where coffee was grown, so often they would combine the coffee… thus, creating the first “coffee blend”. Mocha Java is a blend that not only celebrates coffee’s rich history, but also showcases some of today’s best coffees. So, be sure to try some for your shop!
