The Mocha-Java bend is said to be the oldest known coffee blend originally driven from coffees from the Red Sea port of Al-Makha in the Arabian peninsula and Indonesian coffee from the Java island. Today, coffees from Yemen and Ethiopia are commonly used to form the Mocha component of the blend and pacific island coffees fulfill the Java component.
Our take on the blend is using a natural processed Ethiopian and washed Papua New Guinea. After experimenting with several coffees, roast profiles, and blend compositions, we felt this mix provided an incredible balance of chocolate, berry, and syrupy sweetness that really fit the tasting notes we love to bring you in our Christmas blends.
With that said, we at Mission Arabica hope you can enjoy this incredible coffee with your friends and loved ones and it helps to enrich this wonderful time of the year.
As a reminder, Mission Arabica Christmas blends are available for one Christmas season only and in limited quantity. We have had people request old Christmas blends throughout the year, so we suggest stocking up with several bags and freezing the extra bags if you would like to enjoy the coffee through the full year.
