Crisply sweet-tart, balanced. Rose hips, almond nougat, orange zest, apricot, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with gentle, round acidity; velvety-smooth mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to pretty notes of nougat and apricot, with a hint of cedar.
This coffee tied for the third-highest rating in a cupping of Hawai’i-grown coffees for Coffee Review’s May 2019 tasting report. Produced by Rusty’s Hawaiian entirely of the Typica variety of Arabica and processed by the dry-processed or “natural” method, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or “washed” coffees. Three Chairs Coffee was established in 2014 by Turgay YILDIZLI, the 2013 World Cezve/Ibrik Champion. Three Chairs offers coffees roasted to order for either Turkish or filtered coffee and is on a mission to improve the quality of Turkish coffee and introduce it to the specialty coffee world. The company has partnered with Rusty's Hawaiian for several years, highlighting Ka’u natural-processed coffees. Visit www.specialtyturkishcoffee.com for more information.
The fruit typical of a natural-processed coffee is pleasingly balanced here by deep nougat, citrus zest, and rich aromatic wood notes.
