Background Info

This coffee was awarded a score of 94 points by Coffee Review:

"Deep-toned, chocolaty and rich. Dark chocolate, strawberry guava, hazelnut butter, sandalwood, ginger blossom in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with round, engaging acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Crisply sweet, long finish with notes of dark chocolate, hazelnut and sandalwood."

"A superb example of the classic Kona cup: exceptionally sweet, deeply nut-toned, and vivified by spice-toned floral and fruit notes."

Our final feature from the 2019 harvest at Black Rock Farm is the most traditional. We took ripe selected cherries to be processed at a neighboring mill using the method that is most common in Kona. Mechanically scrubbing off most of the fruit and then over-night fermentation without water to remove the remaining fruit followed by sun drying on covered rooftop drying patios known as Hoshidana.

Taken to a medium roast to represent the quintessential Kona profile most tourists experience when they visit Hawaii but with the complexity and smoothness that comes from a level of meticulous cherry selection uncommon in the region.

Black Rock Farm is a new 10 acre farm overlooking Kealakekua Bay at 1200-1400ft elevation we help to manage. at Black Rock farms in Kona, a recently planted 10 acre coffee farm overlooking Kealakekua bay we help manage. 

Sweet, soft and nutty. A wonderful coffee to enjoy on the patio looking out on the ocean in the morning.
