Sweetly and intensely pungent. Honey, black currant, sweet plum, dark chocolate, night-blooming flowers in aroma and cup. Deeply nuanced, balanced acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor and sweetness overwhelm a slight drying sensation in the finish.
Ka’u is a newly emerged Hawaii coffee growing district centered thirty miles or so southeast of the famous Kona region. Lorie Obra’s Rusty’s Farm is one of Ka’u’s best-known and most celebrated farms. Lorie meticulously picks, processes and roasts her coffees using traditional methods and artisan attention.

Who Should Drink It
Elegant and Kenya-like in its intensity and suggestions of pungent berryish fruit and lush flowers.
