Blind Assessment: Sweetly savory, complex. Pipe tobacco, date, narcissus, almond, baking chocolate in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned with lively acidity; very full, creamy mouthfeel. The finish centers on notes of date and pipe tobacco.
Notes: Produced on K&J Farm in the Ka’u growing region. Processed by the black honey method, in which the skins are removed from the fruit but virtually all of the pulp is allowed to dry slowly on the beans, often resulting in a deep, pungent profile. Big Island Coffee is an award-winning coffee roaster operated with hands-on passion by Kelleigh Stewart and Brandon von Damitz. Visit www.bigislandcoffeeroasters.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A deep, meditative Ka’u cup processed by the black honey method: rich, round, intensely aromatic.
