Origin: Ethiopia; Java, Indonesia. Price: NA

Sold whole-bean in a nitrogen-flushed fiberboard can. Cost per

Who Should Drink It: Trader Joe 's targets the budget gourmet, and this coffee, inexpensive yet glisteningly aromatic and full of idiosyncrasy and character, certainly supports Joe 's business plan. However, neither Javas nor Ethiopia Mokas are consistent coffees, so you may have to buy now to taste what I tasted.
