Finca Hawaii is the largest sole-producer of Mokka on the planet. Operated by the Cafe Granja La Esperanza family of farms - this farm is incredibly fascinating as it's completely dedicated to the variety Mokka. The farm gets it's name from the origin of these seeds, thus the reason it's called Hawaii. This is original Hawaiian Mokka, which has gone through rigorous testing and experimentation, by way of grafting, crossing, training and other methods to best understand the potential of this variety.
When Rigoberto and Luis took over the family operation in the late '90s, they took on the labor-intensive job of pivoting the farms to organic production. Shortly after taking over, they purchased the land that is now Finca La Esperanza and expanded their organic coffee production. Hawaii was the last farm that came into their guise.
Rigoberto and Luis have done major renovations to the farms during the past 30 years of ownership and management, planting new, exotic varieties throughout the 52 producing hectares of Potosi Farm. At Las Margaritas, they produce classic Colombian varieties like Caturra, Colombia, Tabi. As well as beautiful exotics such as Geisha, Sidra, San Juan, Mandela, SL28 and more.
On top of industry-leading farm practices, they're also innovating the world of coffee processing, constantly exploring new techniques and processes to bring their coffees to a whole other level.
Cafe Granja la Esperanza has approximately 12 hectares of Mokka planted at their Hawaii farm. The processing of this coffee has proved challenging, though they've dialed it in as a Natural process, which sees a short anaerobic fermentation for 12 - 16 hours.
It has been recently proven that Mokka is a low-caffeine coffee variety.
The flavour profile of this coffee is tropical, dense and vibrant. It's somewhat challenging to roast, due to it's incredibly small screen size, though it's incredibly fascinating once you unlock it's potential. Think passionfruit, mango and nectarine as the dominant flavours. The body is dense, with a nectar type of presense that will leave your mouth satisfied and fully coated. Long lasting finish, with a stickiness that persists, leaving you want another sip.Variety: Mokka
