Like a vacation in every cup
The KA'U Darkwood is so delicious. It's deep, complex and dark. And so so fulfilling. We just love it!
Best coffee ♡
I have to say this is so delicious. I usually let this steep overnight for about 12〜14 hours . I mix some caramel syrup and pour some cold foam over the coffee It’s amazing taste ! If you like cold brew then I highly recommend this coffee !!!
Love this! Mahalo Erika!
To be honest i am finishing up my Hawaiian Harmony order but did get one cup of the Ka'u Darkwood and it was great.
A high quality product.
I love this company's coffee
I love this company's coffee and I adore knowing I can still enjoy some aloha joe when I can't be on island! Thank you so much Big Island Coffee Roasters!
I have been home brewing since I was in college and have worked in a coffee shop for a little over 2 years now. I have also spent about a year in Costa Rica, visiting coffee shops, walking through coffee fields, and brewing delicious, fresh coffee. The provided Facebook link is from the shop I work at and there are other videos available there. I have also included a link to a blog I have (slowly) been working on.
I’m not sure if you are still doing it but the free shipping within Hawaii was really neat and thoughtful!
Love the coffee and the ease of ordering!
NOTICE THE BUBBLES...
See those bubbles? When your coffee blooms with bubbles it’s a sign that it’s been recently roasted. The fresher the coffee, the more intensity you’ll get because great flavors and aromas fade over time.
☛ Our coffees are roasted-to-order each week, then packaged and shipped immediately, and arrive with the roast dates stamped on the bag.
