Coffees of Hawaii
Muleskinner Dark Roast
|Roaster Location:||Kualapuu, Molokai, Hawaii|
|Review Date:||February 2002|
The opulent, flower-toned sweetness of this coffee is overlaid by an effervescent, spicy mustiness. Imagine mildewed spice covered by chocolate.
This unusual coffee has been dry-processed, meaning the beans have been sun-dried with the fruit still attached. The long contact with the fruit produces a sweet coffee, often, as here, overlaid with rough, musty tones that some coffee drinkers love. From the 500-acre Coffees of Hawaii estate in the central part of the bucolic island of Molokai. Visit
Who Should Drink It
An interesting variation for those who enjoy the rustic, earthily musty coffees of Sumatra.
