MAUI MOKKA: FRESH CROP 2020
This is a great year for Maui Mokka: it's exceptionally heavy bodied, fudgy, and fragrant.
Mokka is a Maui coffee incredibly well-suited to it's trademarked name: Maui Mokka®. There's speculation that these tiny beans are the result of a spontaneous cross of an heirloom Yemenis Mokha with a Maui Typica.
It's sometimes assumed that a larger bean size will augment cup quality - the bigger the bean, the better the quality. We haven't found this to be the true. In fact, Mokka is the contrarian of the coffee world: these tiny beans captured the coveted first place in the 2014 Hawaii Cupping Competition, becoming Hawaii's best coffee in commercial division entrants.
Because the Mokka beans are so small it's challenging to harvest, and has the habit of alternate bearing, meaning it may ripen at very different times year to year. Yields are also typically light. So, why grow Maui Mokka? Simple: it’s elegant, with notes of chocolate, rose, and baking spice.
