This variety of Mokka is a cultivar of the original coffee plants found in Yemen. It wasn't until a few years ago that this rare coffee was revived on the Ka'anapali Plantation on the island of Maui, one of the few places in the world where Maui Mokka is grown. With alternate bearings of light and heavy yields, this gourmet coffee is uncommon, yet exceptional.
These Mokka plants produce incredibly small beans which brew into a delightful cup with notes of dark chocolate and a slightly spicy-sweet scent. Since the coffee beans are dry processed, left in the fruit to dry in the sun, and then hulled, they produce an exotic character which gives each bean a stronger and spicier flavor. When brewed, Hawaiian Maui Mokka coffee is lightly acidic and finishes with a crisp smoothness.
