Look, we love chocolate, okay? We're not ashamed to admit it. And we know a lot of you guys agree with us: coffee is good, but chocolatey coffee is even better!
Hence the Mocharagua coffee. It's mostly Nicaraguan Arabica, roasted to a slightly deeper roast point to bring out its pronounced sweet-chocolate tones without over-toasting them. Then we added Vietnamese Peaberry Robusta, because Vietnamese Robusta has the perfect dark cocoa undercurrent. The premium Robusta also rounds out the palate and gives the coffee a broader appeal, making this a real crowd-pleaser.
This popular Half-Caff version is made with 60% Water Process Decaf Arabica and is low in acid as well as low in caffeine.
We think you'll love this coffee. It's amazing iced, too--try it Vietnamese-style in the Phin filter!
8 oz roasted coffee, Medium/Dark Roast. Please select ground coffee or whole bean. Please note the chocolate tones of this coffee are not as intense as in our Saigon Blends or Vietnamese butter-roast coffees such as Trung Nguyen. If you prefer a milder chocolate tone, this is a coffee you will enjoy.
Fantastic taste without the caffeine overload
Those of us who love coffee but can't handle much caffeine really have it rough. We would drink decaf if we could find any that tastes good, but that's wishful thinking. When the low-caffeine "Passiona" (a Vietnamese coffee whose beans are naturally low in caffeine) was discontinued, I was upset and had to continue my search for a suitable coffee. I'm so happy that Heirloom Coffee offers a half-caff version of Mocharagua because I love chocolate as much as coffee. Mocharagua is amazing, and it's the only coffee that I've been drinking for the past several months.
I've only made iced coffee with it (using a Phin filter to brew it hot), so I can't comment on how it tastes otherwise. To me, it definitely has a dark chocolate aftertaste if prepared according to the instructions on the package (brew it strong and let it sit for 20 minutes before adding ice). For what it's worth, I use two slightly-rounded tablespoons of coffee with 175 mL water. I normally put two tablespoons of light cream in it and no sugar, but I've also tried it with homemade sweetened condensed milk, and it's a wonderful treat.
