YEMEN MOCCA MATARI
Authentic Mocha coffee is from Yemen and Matari coffee is perhaps its best known. It is from the Bani Mattar region area located west of the capital city of Sana'a. This is very high altitude coffee, grown 6500 to 7000 feet, resulting in small, concentrated beans. Not much has changed over the centuries as to how Yemen coffee is processed. In the manner of all natural coffees the fruit pulp and skin are left to dry while still attached to the beans. Once dried the husk is removed using a millstone. The varietals used in growing this coffee are ancient, heirloom species. The more widely known is Ismaili but there are many less familiar names.
INDONESIAN KOPI LUWAK
Kopi Luwak comes from the islands of Sumatra, Java and Sulawesi, which are part of the Indonesian Archepelago’s 13.677 islands. On these Indonesian islands, there is a small marsupial, called Paradoxurus in the scientific language and Luwak by the locals, which is a tree-dwelling animal and belongs to the Sibet family. Long regarded by the natives as pests, they climb among the coffee trees eating only the ripest, reddest coffee cherries. After having eaten these berries, the animals must digest and eventually excrete them. Some locals once got the idea of gathering the beans, which come through the digestion process fairly intact, still wrapped in layers of the cherries’ mucilage. The enzymes in the animals’ stomachs, though, appear to add something unique to the coffee’s flavor through fermentation. The stomach acids and enzymes are very different from fermenting beans in water. It is the most complex coffee with unusual flavor due to the natural fermentation the coffee beans undergo in the paradoxurus’ digestive system. It smells musty and jungle-like green but it roasts up real nice. The flavor is earthy with a musty tone that is heavy bodied. It is almost syrupy with a unique aroma. It is an unbelievable taste in your mouth: richness, body,earthiness, smooth.
JAMAICA BLUE MOUNTAIN
Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee is widely revered as the world’s best coffee. Any attempts at verifying this in empirical terms is impossible as coffee like any other luxury relies on subjective human tastes. What is empirically valid however is that through the very long history of exclusive Arabica Typica coffees, Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffees have always held the highest echelons of price and renown English Author Ian Fleming blessed his hero James bond with impeccable tastes for all the finest things in life. Mr. Bond declared outright in the novel Live and Let Die, "Blue Mountain Coffee, the most delicious in the world" Mr. Bond’s sentiment is one shared world wide and for decades among the fortunate.
