History unites in this unique pairing of East African and Indonesian beans. Created from an unparallel past, these beans are likened to the ancient ports of Mocha and Java, key centers of commerce during the early days of coffee trade. From one port comes a bright, wild and winey flavor. From the other, a smooth, round, full body. The result? The old made new.
