Long before they were first cultivated by the Arabs in Yemen, legend has it that the first Arabica coffee beans were discovered by a goatherd in the province of Kaffa, south-west Ethiopia, back in 850 BC.
A stone’s throw from the home of the first bean, the small round Mocha beans grown in the region of Djimmah have a wonderfully rich and earthy flavour, harking back to their ancient roots – it’s no wonder that Mocha Djimmah is sometimes known as ‘Original Coffee’…
Grown at a high altitude beneath the shade of dense forests, the beans laid out to dry in the scorching sun. Known for their bittersweet chocolate intensity, these Mocha beans give a hit of boozy fruit, and a delicious nutty aftertaste. Mature and multi-layered, this coffee has a flavour as rich as its history.
Absolutely the smoothest flavor ever one of those rare light roasts that are so hard to find in the UK but can be found for a fraction of the price in some Covernt Garden stores - therefore 3 stars only to the store ;)

Among the best coffee I've ever had. Great for a daily cup. Smooth, naturally sweet, delicious. That first morning sip is so warming and brings life to the day. I just love it.

Whittards Mocha Coffee is without doubt the best I have ever found. It is sweet, smooth - just lovely in every way.

Wonderful coffee, smooth and delicious. Given the cash I'd go for Jamaican Blue Mountain every time, but this is running a very close second and is far more affordable!
