Big Island Coffee Roasters
Kona Red Bourbon
|Mountain View, Hawaii
|Holualoa, Kona, Big Island of Hawai’i
Richly sweet-tart, deeply chocolaty. Dark chocolate, pomegranate, lemon verbena, agave syrup, pink grapefruit zest in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with apple-like malic acidity; very full, smooth, viscous mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to notes of pomegranate and dark chocolate with undertones of pink grapefruit zest.
Produced by Franck Carisey of Uluwehi Farm entirely of the Red Bourbon variety of Arabica, and processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried) with the addition of wine yeasts during fermentation. 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.
This Big Island Red Bourbon fermented with wine yeasts displays an intriguing cup profile that juxtaposes tart fruit with rich chocolate notes — juicy, deep, balanced and bright.
