Luxuriously rich, brandy-toned. Orange, cognac, hints of roasted cacao nib and honeysuckle in aroma and cup. Richly tart acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates in a sweet though drying finish.
Ka’u is a newly emerging Hawaii coffee-growing district centered approximately thirty miles southeast of the famous Kona region. This 100% Ka’u coffee was developed by Lorie Obra of Rusty’s Farm, one of Ka’u’s best-known and most celebrated farms. Obra meticulously picks, processes and roasts her coffees using traditional methods and artisan attention. This coffee comes from trees of the traditional Typica variety and was processed by the “natural” method, in which the coffee is dried inside the whole fruit, rather than by the more orthodox “washed” method, in which the soft fruit residue is removed before the beans are dried.

Who Should Drink It
Those who value an explicitly but lightly and elegantly ferment-toned coffee: think oranges and fine brandy.
