Arabica beans grow best in altitudes from 2000 to 6000 feet. This species has the most flavor and aroma of all coffee beans. At these higher elevations the beans grow and develop more slowly, leading to more complex and enhanced flavor characteristics. These are the beans we search out to purchase and roast into specialty premium gourmet coffees.
Moka Joe is proud to be one of a handful of coffee roasters in the nation who purchase and roast 100% Fair Trade Certified beans. This means that the beans come from farming cooperatives and small farms of less than 15 acres.
All of these superior Arabica beans are shade grown using traditional farming methods to preserve biodiversity and bird habitat. In most cases, that means hand pruning and weeding, thinning and harvesting. Only organic compost and fertilizers are used to encourage the well-being of the plants. As an understory crop, the coffee beans mature more slowly than those raised in full sun as a plantation crop, and several pickings are done to catch each bean at the height of its flavor capacity.
It is always an exciting time when the big burlap bags arrive at our Roastery with exotic markings… As orders come in, our roastmaster selects the combination of beans and roasts them in small batches using our state-of-the-art Diedrich drum roaster. This roasting process uses less direct heat so the roast is more gently controlled, ending with a consistent product with consistent taste – batch after batch.
