Our new Mocha Java blend is a blend of coffees from Yemen (Moka) and Java (Indonesia). It's an ode to the "original", oldest (and most widely produced) coffee blend, Moka Java, as well as the rise of coffee capitalism and the “very fine Java & Mocha” blend made famous by Hills Bros coffee company in the early 1900s.

A beautiful blend of earthy and chocolates, with bright cherry fruit flavors - makes this post blend mouth watering. We roast each single origin separately at the optimum roast level, then post blend to create this perfect marriage. 

Too bad the Hill Bros didn't just do it right and actually make it the "highest grade". Maybe the coffee industry would be better off today had they done so... ;)

I’ve found enlightenment

Although I was not sitting under a yew tree when enlightenment found me, I was drinking Mad Priest’s Mocha Java. It’s quite possibly the best coffee I’ve ever tasted.

Love Mocha Java Blend

This coffee makes me very happy. I tried a one-pound bag and then bought a 2-pound bag. I hope to never run out.

Best Mocha Java Blend I've been able to get

Carissimi Mad,
Tuum mocha java tota faba assata est praestantissimum capulus mixtum in urbe promptum, talea nulla.
Iniuriam pugnando serva et toxicus capulus miscet.

Absolutely Delicious

If you can you absolutely have to try this blend. The bittersweet dark chocolate taste is absolutely a treat to wake up to.

Great taste and fuerte pizazz

Mocha Java a great blend. It os flavorful and strong without overwhelming my coffee tastebuds. I hope becomes a regular in the Mad Priest lineup.

The story

The original blend can be traced back more than 500 years to two of the first shipping ports from which coffee was exported, the port of al-Makha in Yemen and the port in Java in Indonesia. Trade ships would load up on coffee from both and take them back to Europe. And then the two beans were (accidentally or intentionally, who knows) blended together and became the world’s first coffee blend.But what about coffee capitalism? The name itself from Hills Bros. coffee company was a bit misleading…their “Java & Mocha” coffee wasn’t a mix of coffees from Yemen and Java. Instead “Moka Java” (literally “mocha” or chocolate and “java” or coffee) was merely a coffee blend with rich chocolatey flavor notes. And a misleading name isn't even the real problem with Hills Bros and the rise of coffee capitalism. The story is a much deeper one with ties to James Hill, the ruthless “coffee king” of El Salvador, and the atrocities of his legacy that have changed the face of coffee forever.
