Barrel-Aged Puna listed in Coffee Review's "Top 30 Coffees of 2019"!

Tasting notes: spicy & sweet rum, caramel, berries, melon, jasmine; exotic, intense, flavorful 


Part of our barrel-aged Hawaiian coffee series, the nuance in this barreled Puna coffee swooned us all! Due to an overcast and cool climate on the slope of Kilauea, the coffees in upper Puna grow dense with flavors and characteristics that taste completely unlike the classic Hawaiian coffee profile. Both exotic and rustic, we've lightly "aged" this Puna coffee in local Kuleana Rum barrels. 

Coffee Review's Assessment

Blind Assessment: Sweetly spice-toned, richly chocolaty. Salted chocolate, hop flowers, Concord grape, ginger, a hint of aged grappa in aroma and cup. Sweet-savory structure with fruit-forward, wine-toned acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish leads with Concord grape and ginger in the short, followed by hops in the long, all bound by a throughline of savory-sweet chocolate and aged grappa.

Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 30 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2019. This coffee also tied for the second-highest rating in a cupping of Hawai’i-grown coffees for Coffee Review’s May 2019 tasting report.
