Orange, Strawberry Guava and cream with hints of flowers in the nose. Exceptionally rounded and elegant in the cup.
Harvested at Black Rock farms in Kona, a recently planted 10 acre coffee farm overlooking Kealakekua bay we manage.
We are always working to improve the coffees we produce in Hawaii, cupping through hundreds of trials every year to continually push the boundaries of quality further forward.
Our newest method we have developed we call 'Pink Honey'. The coffee is fermented in cherries first, resulting in a vibrant pink tinge to the fruit upon removing the skin. The coffee is laid to dry on patios with the fruit still attached to the parchment, commonly called honey processing. In the fermentation we have utilized yeast strains selected to enhance the floral and tropical fruit character of the coffee.
The resulting coffee is similar in profile to a washed coffee but with a more complex, exotic flavor profile and fuller mouthfeel.
