Maui Moka

Maui Moka

Maui Moka comes from coffee trees first commercialized almost 1,000 years ago in Yemen. This exotic Moka varietal, from the original Aribia Felix (grown in the birthplace of all coffee) is now grown in limited quantities high above the white sand beaches, on the gentle slopes of the West Maui Mountains.

Moka’s tiny beans, often mistaken for peaberry due to their small size, have long fascinated coffee aficionados. Coffee experts are predicting that the unique flavor of the Moka bean has the potential to establish the Maui area as a recognized specialty coffee region, similar to Kona.

This coffee has very moderate acidity, with an Afro-Arabian fruit and chocolate cup character. Brewed in a standard drip coffee maker, you’ll notice the chocolate & fruit taste most prominently. A French press brings out a deep smokey chocolate nose and flavor.

Please note; this is not a flavored coffee. It is a descendant of the Yemen Mokka varietal and has an all natural flavor reminiscent of chocolate and fruit that made Yemeni Coffees famous centuries ago, and still today.

While they say that the results support moderate coffee drinking as a relatively healthy habit, both Poole and Guallar say the findings don’t go far enough to prompt anyone to change their coffee-drinking habits in the hopes of improving their health. The study did not confirm, for example, that people who do not currently drink coffee should start adding a cup or two a day in order to lower their risk of getting heart disease or any of the other chronic conditions studied. The data also do not support the idea that current coffee drinkers should drink even more coffee to enhance whatever benefits they might be receiving. Too much coffee, the data suggest, starts to bend the benefit curve back down.
