Gently bittersweet, deeply floral-toned. Baker’s chocolate, aromatic orchid, hazelnut, oak in aroma and cup. Low-toned, crisply bittersweet in structure. Mouthfeel is light though silky. The finish consolidates to a rich, oaky chocolate.
Ka’u is an emerging Hawaii coffee-growing district centered approximately 30 miles southeast of the famous Kona region. This Ka’u is produced by the Palehua Ohana Cooperative of small-holding Ka’u farmers, an organization dedicated to impeccable socio-economic and environmental practices. Carbonic maceration is an innovative variation on the wet or “washed” method, in which the whole coffee fruit is fermented in a carbon-dioxide rich environment before the fruit residue is removed and the beans are dried. The goal is to improve the clarity and sweetness of fruit notes. The method is being pioneered by Sasa Sestic, an Australian barista champion. Visit www.kauspecialtycoffee.com for more information.
Delicately bittersweet and cocoa-toned, with flowers hinting at lushness.
