A certified classic synonymous with fruit-forward flavors of dark chocolate, almonds, and berry-like fruit. This medium roast coffee is dark enough to stand up to milk, but not so dark as to hide the inherent flavor qualities of the blend’s component coffees.

Origin Story

Ismael Hassen Aredo (Ethiopia)
Koperasi Ketiara (Sumatra)

Mocha Java Blend is built around a pair of coffees from the Kayon Mountain Estate in Southern Guji, Ethiopia. The first is a natural processed coffee that gives the blend its classic fruit-forward character. The second is a vibrant, fully-washed coffee that adds brightness and subtle floral notes.

Finally, we complete the blend with a coffee from the Ketiara Cooperative in the Gayo Mountain region of Sumatra’s Aceh Province. Affectionately known as Queen Ketiara, this coffee is grown by the group’s women producers. The coffee's full bodied and earthy characteristics balance out the blend’s other more nuanced components to create a complex and versatile blend with just the right amount of fruit presence.

Why We Love This Coffee

Mocha Java is a classic blend name synonymous with fruit-forward flavors. Typically, natural processed coffee from Yemen or Ethiopia is combined with coffee from Indonesia, usually Java but sometimes from other islands such as Sumatra.

Associate Director of Coffee Nate Breckenridge has always enjoyed this nuanced blend. As a medium roast Mocha Java is dark enough to stand up to milk, but not so dark as to hide the inherent flavor qualities of the blend’s component coffees. The two Ethiopian coffees contribute fruity and floral characteristics while the Sumatra adds depth and body.

Good Coffee, Better Planet

Kayon Mountain Estate owner Ismael Hassen Aredo provides training for 140 nearby smallholder farmers, helps finance social initiative projects such as the construction of schools, and plans to build a bridge across the Sawana River to make the walk to school for the children of the community more safe.

In addition to producing great coffee, one of the reasons we were initially attracted to Ketiara, is the fact that it is led by a charismatic woman named Rahmah. After working in coffee for many years, she helped found Ketiara in 2009 with just 38 members and currently serves as the co-op’s chairperson. In the years since it was established, the co-op membership has expanded to nearly 2,000 smallholder farmers, over 50% of them being women. The coffee Equator purchases is exclusively from the women members of the co-op; they refer to this special selection as Queen Ketiara. We pay an additional premium for the "Queen" designation, with proceeds going to programs that benefit women.

All of Mocha Java Blend’s components are both Fair Trade and Organic certified.
