Processing Method: Natural
Grown exclusively on the island of Maui, this Mokka varietal coffee flourishes in the volcanic soil under the Hawaiian sun. Originally derived from the seed stock of the Mocha varietal in Yemen - which is said to be a coffee variety dating back 1,000 years - it is a low yielding and difficult to pick, though produces exceptional flavor notes. This coffee is processed unlike any other naturally processed coffee. Instead of being picked and then allowed to dry, the coffee cherry is left on the tree to completely dry before being picked.
Of the thousands of coffees we encounter in our search for the best, only a precious few are deemed exceptional enough to become Starbucks Reserve® coffees, offered only for limited times at select stores.
- Product Details
Grown exclusively on Maui, this low-yielding Maui Mokka™ varietal descends from a seedling brought from the historic port town of Al Mokha in Yemen and is believed to date back nearly 1,000 years.
The coffee’s intense flavors are attributed in part to how it’s processed and the ideal environment where it’s cultivated. Each coffee cherry is left to dry naturally on the tree before it’s harvested on the fertile slopes of Pu’u Kukui – West Maui’s tallest peak and one of the rainiest spots in the world.
This Starbucks Reserve® coffee is available only at select times and stores, so be sure to enjoy it when you can.
