Ethiopian Mocha (Djimma)


Mocha Djimma, called the original coffee, produces a smooth, slight thick and velvety cup. The biscuity and earthy tones are a celebrated flavour of this classic.



This high grade bean is one of the true Mocha class coffee beans available in the world today. The ancestors of this coffee classic were among the first exported to the Arabian port of Mokba to be sold to the world beyond as ‘Mocha Coffee’.

Serve fresh roasted and strong brewed to achieve the desired slightly thick and velvety texture of ‘traditional’ coffee.  Mocha Djimma is characterized as having a biscuity and earthy flavour.  This flavour pairs well with chocolate as discovered by the pioneers of coffee flavouring and is probably the reason that the combination of coffee and chocolate has come to be known as Mocha.

Djimma coffee beans, when compared to our other Ethiopian coffees, is a little smoother than its cousins the Fair Trade Sidamo coffee and the Harra Longberry coffee.  However all three African coffees are a must try for the connoisseur.
