WASHINGTON BERRIES

Washington strawberries are especially flavorful and aromatic!  So, what gives Washington strawberries such sweetness and perfume?   According to the experts, it’s a combination of the type of strawberry—the cultivar—that’s being grown, and the fact that the berries are local.  Local-harvest makes for fresher, riper berries, while the cultivar issue accounts for a lot of the sweetness.  Our strawberries are locally sourced from nearby strawberry farms producing vine ripened sweet and juicy berries bursting with flavor.

MOKA JOE FAIR TRADE ORGANIC COFFEE

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.  The superior Arabica beans are shade grown using traditional farming methods to preserve biodiversity and bird habitat. 

The Roastmaster selects the combination of beans and roasts them in small batches using 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.

MADAGASCAR VANILLA

We prefer to stay local, but we’ll go to the ends of the earth to find the best most flavorful vanilla.

For mysterious and unknown reasons, vanilla just tastes better when it’s grown in Madagascar, an island in the Indian Ocean.  Bourbon vanilla beans from Madagascar are superior, with flavor and aromatic qualities that make Madagascar vanilla beans the most popular and sought after vanilla variety. Bourbon vanilla is rich, dark and creamy with an overwhelming sweet, buttery aroma.
