SUPER SPECIALTY KA'U COFFEE
This vibrant cup is among the best Ka'u coffees we've had the pleasure to serve.
Ripe red coffee cherry, hand-sorted, meticulously tended, high elevation. Intensely aromatic, syrupy sweet, and balanced. Just look at the photos.
On a small, lush farm in the heart of majestic Wood Valley at 2300’, Alla and Rus - the couple pictured here - and farm owner Dennis have spent the past three years doing much of what we did our first years in Puna: pruning coffee trees, fertilizing, pulling weeds, rehabilitating the field day by day. Simultaneously, they've been harvesting and processing coffee, experimenting, and testing ways to improve quality.
We’ve tasted this lot throughout the years and, while it’s been very good, this season’s crop is at another level: intensely fragrant, juicy, ripe, and sweet.
And so to do this great Ka'u coffee justice, and as is our practice when we bring in new Hawaiian coffees, we've carefully designed the roast profile (recipe) to reveal the exotic, inherent, and ripe hidden flavors. Freshly milled and then roasted, we cupped 10 different roast profiles before selecting our favorites. And that is what we're now offering here.
