Blind Assessment: Deep-toned, complexly layered, vibrantly aromatic. Black cherry, honeysuckle, cocoa nib, sugar cane, lemon balm in aroma and cup. Richly bittersweet structure with tart, juicy acidity; crisp, satiny mouthfeel. Very long, nuanced, resonant finish.
Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 17 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2022. Produced entirely from trees of the Red Bourbon variety of Arabica and grown on Hula Daddy’s higher elevation farm; processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). This presentation of the coffee is named for co-owner Karen Paterson, whose middle name is Jue and whose favorite coffee is the Red Bourbon. Hula Daddy is a boutique coffee producer with farms at the 1,400 and 2,500-foot levels of the Mount Hualalai volcano near the northern end of the Kona growing district, five minutes above the town of Kailua-Kona.

The Bottom Line: This classic Kona coffee unfolds over time to reveal intriguing complexity, exciting vibrancy, and deep, harmonious balance.
