Oahu's Top Coffee: a triple colored Bourbon variety

Hand-harvested, processed in small batches, and carefully tended by the purpose-driven researchers at the 501c3 Hawaii Agriculture Research Center (HARC). This and our future Oahu coffees come from a special partnership developed between Big Island Coffee Roasters and HARC.

Bourbon (pronounced boar-bone) is a top tier arabica variety known for being abundantly sweet and doing exceptionally well in competitions all over the world (we won the Hawaii Statewide Cupping Competition in 2013 with our pink bourbon variety). This is a blend of pink, red, and yellow bourbon that was grown just west of Kailua in the lush Maunawili Valley, nestled between the Olomana Ridge and the a large Ko'olau range. 

Of this triple colored bourbon variety, we've blended two different coffee processing methods together -- natural and washed -- to make a profile that our employees say tastes like dessert: chocolate brownies, cherries, dates and fruitcake.

Besides producing an exotic array of coffee varieties designed to serve as a seed bank for local farmers, HARC performs important field research on Koa -- an endemic hard-wood tree and keystone species in the native forests of Hawai'i -- heirloom sugar cane, cacao, soil preservation, and more. Their coffee grows interspersed with this native hardwood, which provides extra nitrogen and shade to the coffee trees. 

We're thrilled to share HARC's specialty Oahu coffees, not only because they're one-of-a-kind, but also because your purchase will fuel, support, fund and grow this horticulture crop research that gives back to Hawaii.
