The Mokka (sometimes Moka) comes from Yemen and is one of the oldest known coffee varieties in the world, it is a short tree with small berries and leaves and is known for its small and round shape of the bean and is sometimes called "Ismaili "in the Yemeni language.
The Mokka variety is a mutation of the Typica that is commonly grown in Brazil and Hawaii, it is not a very resistant variety to the most common diseases and has a low productivity.
Outside of Yemen, coffee was called Moka, not because it tasted of chocolate as is sometimes thought, but because all the coffee that was exported from the 15th century to the end of the 18th century was exported through the port of Moka.
Our Mokka coffee comes from Honduras, carefully produced by the Caballero family, who have been working for years in the experimentation and adaptation of varieties at their renowned Finca el Puente farm.
