MOKKA Specialty Coffee continues a long tradition of four generations. Since 1922 we specialize in roasting and processing all kinds of specialty coffee. MOKKA Specialty Coffee is based in the family’s neoclassical building in the historic center of Athens. On a surface of 1000 square meters we operate the traditional speciality coffee shop, the café, the trainning center and our specialty coffee production.
Our goal is to be among the best specialty coffee roasters around the World. We want to be chosen because of our quality, our knowledge, expertise and innovation. Specialty Coffee is our passion and we are the first specialty coffee roasters in Greece who imported and roasted Speciality Coffees and micro-lots awarded with the Cup of Excellence. We want to source, roast and offer, the speciality coffees that we believe are the best in the world. We want to educate and to share our passion in order to highlight the most tastfull beverage in the world.
Speciality coffee is defined as a crafted quality coffee-based beverage, which is judged by the consumer (in a limited marketplace at a given time) to have a unique quality, a distinct taste and personality different from, and superior to, the common coffee beverages offered. The beverage is based on beans that have been grown in an accurately defined area, and which meet the highest standards for green coffee and for its roasting, storage and brewing.
Specialty coffee can consistently exist through the dedication of the people who have made it their life's work to continually make quality their highest priority. This is not the work of only one person in the lifecycle of a coffee bean; specialty can only occur when all of those involved in the coffee value chain work in harmony and maintain a keen focus on standards and excellence from start to finish. According SCA (Speciality Coffee Association) which counts thousands of members around the world, speciality coffee is defined as the art of manufacturing a quality cup of coffee, which is judged by the consumer to have a unique quality, characteristic taste and personality, better than the common beverages offered. This beverage should consist of coffee beans which have grown at a designated location and have been processed under the highest quality standards for raw processing, roasting, storing, and finally the preparation to a beverage. A specialty coffee should score above 82 points. It should have a complex, rich, characteristic taste. The coffee should be roasted with craftsmanship so the flavor notes to be present in balance and be clear. Flavor descriptions such as chocolate, vanilla, nutty, caramel, fruity, forest fruits, tropical fruits, flowery, jasmine, citric are very common between specialty coffees. Specialty coffee contribute around 10% of the annually global production. Due to the limited production and to the continually growing demand, specialty coffee is 30% - 40% more expensive than commercial and in many case exceeds 100%. We have seen record high prices at various coffee auctions with the most prestigious being the CoE. When a consumer is selecting a specialty coffee it is important to read on the package the producer, the variety and the process. All these should be clearly written. MOKKA follows this procedure and highlights the traceability for all of our coffees. MOKKA roasts and specializes exclusively on the authentic specialty coffee. We are the first company who introduced coffees of such a level in the Greek market. We used the term ‘specialty coffee’ from 1999. We direct trade and roast coffee from specific and well known producers aiming to offer what we love, the rich and clear flavor of our coffees. We often visit our producers aiming for a collaboration and a continual improvement on production practices as well as selecting the best of the best coffee lots. Once harvest and dry processing is completed the coffee is stored in parchment under ideal conditions. MOKKA once per year chooses the coffee lots and imports them around two months after the harvest in order the coffee to be rested. We store our coffee lots in a temperature and humidity controlled environment throughout the rest of the year. For MOKKA coffee is a culture and we want to enjoy it everyday, so our challenge is to choose the best in quality and in flavor. We aim for continual improvement, by getting knowledge and by investing in technology. Coffee roasting is an art that requires a high degree of knowledge and experience to produce specialty level roast profiles. Coffee must be closely monitored during the roasting process and scientific principles of heat transfer, thermodynamics and coffee chemistry must be applied to ensure the highest standard of quality and flavor come through in the final roasted bean. Taste our coffees which are processed and roasted with craftsmanship since four generations.
The Speciality Coffee Association of Europe SCAE was founded in 1998 in order to create an association composed of coffee quality friends, with a common vision of ‘’a perfect cup of coffee to the consumer.’’ According to SCAE, Speciality coffee is defined as the art of manufacturing a quality cup of coffee, which is judged by the consumer to have a unique quality, characteristic taste and personality, better than the common beverages offered.

Consider that specialty coffees from Brazil accounts of 40% of the global production. Also specialty coffees from Brazil are the heart of espresso blends and ibrik blends. In these events, it distributes relevant information and promotional samples, as well as it has degustation tests to demonstrate the quality of its member companies’ specialty coffees. while representing Brazilian gourmet coffee producers in the SCAA, in the United States, BSCA became involved in the activities of its operational committees: the International Relations Committee, in which specialty coffee production and its international trade are discussed. BSCA represents Brazilian producers, and is joined by representatives of Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, Hawaii, Kenya and Indonesia, and roasting companies and retailers from Europe and the United States; and the Environmental Committee, the main forum to discuss environmental issues, where the entity defends Brazilian specialty coffees producers’ interest and promotes discussions on the coffee industry’s sustainability.
