 The Mokka varietal originated hundreds of years ago as a mutation of the bourbon coffee varietal.  It was named after the Yemeni port of Al-Mukha, known for its coffee exports, and has been translated into many different spellings such as; mocha, mokka, mokha, and mocca. In the mid 1900s, mocca was brought to Brazil and eventually to the CTAHR research center on the Big Island of Hawaii. The mokka varietal grown on Maui today is hybridized with typica. It has retained the small round cherries and similar flavor characteristics of the old mocha, but is much taller and more productive than the orignal. Due to its small size, low yield, and harvesting challenges, farmers usually choose not to grow it. This makes mokka extremely rare and unique to Maui.
