The Mocha Java blends dates from the 18th century, at a time when Europeans had a fairly limited menu of coffees to choose from. Mocha, the worlds original commercial coffee, is named after the Yemeni port of Mokha, or al-Mukh , where beans from across Eastern Africa were traded and exported. At that time Yemen also received beans from Java, an Indonesian island colonized by the Dutch, who had introduced coffee cultivation. Inevitably, these two coffees came together to form the worlds first blend. BRCs 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.
Composed of Sumatran Gayo Mountain and Ethiopian Yirge Cheffe, with notes of berry, black cherry, and cashew.
