Each year we cup dozens of coffees from different farms in Ka'u covering the three primary growing areas within Ka'u: Cloud's Rest, Wood Valley, and Pear Tree. We're looking for coffees with high levels of caramel-like sweetness, roasted nuts (often pecans or hazelnuts), and the brightness of ripe stone-fruit, like apricot or peach.

The best Ka'u coffees we taste are blended to create our signature single origin Ka'u Morning Glory coffee.

While their strengths are often different, they compliment each other nicely: bright, long and juicy fruit tones meet with a medium-full body and candied sweet finish. 

The farmers we sourced from for our 2017/2018 lot of Ka'u coffee are excellent and attentive; getting regular soil analysis' and transitioning to no-spray. One farmer had been selling his coffee cherry to a local mill, but gave it up due to instability in the cherry market. For the focus he has on maintaining a healthy farm and perfecting his harvesting practices, it was a shame his coffee was blended with inferior lots. So we are very happy to offer his Ka'u coffee to you.

The combination ripe-red harvesting and skillful washed processing makes this buttery-sweet Ka'u coffee a knockout.

We aim to source the highest quality Ka'u coffees available - 100% specialty grade* -  selected on the merits of it's quality year after year. By virtue of being one of Hawaii's few micro-mills we're able to keep our Ka'u coffee in the parchment state until it's ready to roast, meaning our selection remains fresh and retains great character throughout the year.

* Specialty Grade refers to a quality score given my a certified Arabica Q-Grader, deeming a top grade coffee. 

All coffees are roasted to order with roast dates stamped on the bag.

    I recently got my first bag of this amazing coffee, and I am absolutely crazy about it. It's creamy, but with a bold flavor and aroma that's undeniably delicious. I'll definitely be ordering more.
