Uluwehi Farms is a new farm planted 2 years ago in Holualoa, Kona at 1800ft elevation. The farm is planted half with Red Bourbon, half with SL34. Both varieties grown from seeds from trees Miguel selected for planting and the Hula Daddy Waiono farm a decade ago. The farm was planted by and is maintained by Kraig Lee of Kona farm direct. Back in November 2020 we featured the Bourbon variety from this farm which was rated 95 Points by Coffee Review!
This Year is the first harvest of the SL34 and is showing a lot of promise. Already one of the most stunning Hawaiian coffees we made from the 2020 harvest season.
We processed this coffee in November and December 2020 using a washed process with wine yeasts to accentuate Tropical fruit flavors and give the coffee a full, silky mouthfeel.
The SL34 variety is a selection made in the 1930's by Scott Laboratories in Kenya. It along with SL28 are two of the classic varieties of Kenya both known for exemplary cup quality. Very recent genetic comparisons have shown the SL34 variety to be distinct from the Typica/Bourbon group that comprises most cultivated coffee around the world and a match for some plants still being grown in Yemen today.
