Meet Whiskey Dreams Blend
Moka-Java does not really mean coffee with chocolate. It’s actually the world’s oldest recorded coffee blend. Yup, true story! The first commercial coffee came out of what is now Yemen, shipped through the port of Al-Makha (Mocha/Moka) in the early 1600s. Soon, the Dutch started exporting coffee from their new plantations on the island of Java. Europeans of the time became enamored with this new and magical brew called coffee, and it was only a matter of time until they started blending Moka and Java offerings. The vision behind blending coffees is that different origins offer different profiles, and while each may be awesome as a single origin, a combination may create a profile that is a coffee lover’s dream.
Old Soul has done just that in their Whiskey Dreams Blend. The powerful, fruity acidity of the Ethiopia Abaya energizes the lower-toned profile of Sumatra, while the more earthy and mellow Sumatran helps tame the wild fruitiness of the Ethiopian. Sweet. Inviting. Must have.
