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.

Legend has it that coffee was discovered by Kaldi, an Ethiopian goatherd, after he caught his suddenly frisky goats eating glossy green leaves and red berries and then tried it for himself. But it was the Arabs who first started coffeehouses, and that’s where coffee got its first black mark. Patrons of coffeehouses were said to be more likely to gamble and engage in “criminally unorthodox sexual situations,” according to author Ralph Hattox. By 1511, the mayor of Mecca shut them down. He cited medical and religious reasons, saying coffee was an intoxicant and thus prohibited by Islamic law, even though scholars like Mark Pendergrast believe it was more likely a reaction to the unpopular comments about his leadership. The ban didn’t last long, Pendergrast says, adding that coffee became so important in Turkey that “a lack of sufficient coffee provided grounds for a woman to seek a divorce.”
