The World's Oldest Blend

12 oz whole bean dark coffee
Add to Cart

When it comes to coffee, nothing is more iconic than Mocha Java, the world's oldest blend. A mug of pure romance, this dark roast combines the spicy, earthy notes of an Indonesian with the smooth, fruity notes of an Ethiopian. The result? A layered cup of spicy, complex flavor, with a touch of red-wine-like fruit in the smooth finish. As it cools, you might detect a touch of florals, like the aroma of a tropical, night-blooming flower. And the lighter body makes it the perfect dark roast for Autumn's clear, crisp days.

Mocha Java is the oldest coffee blend in the world, originally an accidental mix of beans from two historic shipping ports— the Yemen port of Mocha and the Indonesian port of Java. It’s story takes us back 600 years, when Yemen was the hub of the coffee trade for the Arab world. From the 15th to the 17th centuries, the appetite for coffee spread from the Arabian peninsula, into the Islamic world, and from there into Europe. Early Dutch colonies transformed Indonesia into a coffee-growing powerhouse, and their beans travelled from Java, to Mocha, to join with African beans for export. Somewhere along the way, serendipity intervened, and we’ve been enjoying the blend ever since. Since coffee from Yemen is difficult to find, most modern blends, like this one, substitute a similarly-natured Ethiopian.

For a dark and spicy cup with a hint of exotic, wine-like flair, you can’t beat the Mocha Java blend from Lighthouse Roasters. One of Seattle’s classic coffee companies, Lighthouse has been a beacon for dark-roast lovers for over 20 years: this blend is no exception. Reserve a bag of this iconic blend, and slip into this classic little black coffee.

★★★★★ ★★★★★ Has a kick to it -- super good! The spice is very prominent. Used it in the french press and it was great!
★★★★★ ★★★★★ This is an amazing coffee and instantly became one of my favorites. Ground with a burr grinder and brewed in a french press it created a beautiful crema: thick and slightly foamy. The coffee tastes equally rich and intense while keeping a balance among the spicy, chocolaty, and floral notes. Loved it!
★★★★★ ★★★★★ Fresh, rich flavor, this is a very good option if you cannot tolerate acidic coffee
★★★★★ ★★★★★ Initially boring, but a few sips in began to enjoy it. Not dark enough for my liking but definitely darker than some, and very smooth with no bitterness.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ I received a bean box for Christmas and found the Mocha Java Blend to be my favorite out of the box. Its a smooth taste that sits well and slowly drifts away on your taste buds as they are waiting for your next sip. I always guessed I liked darker roasts and getting this gift just solidified it.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ Not an everyday Coffee, but one that is a nice treat on a cold day. Bright and strong. I usually shy away from anything Mocha but really enjoyed that this as it didn't come across syrupy and overly sweet. Lighthouse Roasters tend to put out good products and this is another one in their stable
★★★★★ ★★★★★ It was very good for a medium-dark coffee. I prefer very dark coffee.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ Decent one to be used with the mock pot. I enjoyed my rich, bold espresso.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ This was a good coffee, but the floral notes were a bit too strong for me.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ Mocha Javas are some of my favs! They always surprise and this is no exception!
