THE WILD ONE

Our Honeyed Yellow Caturra is the result of a single coffee varietal (yellow caturra) processed in a special way (honeyed). The honey process naturally flavors the coffee with its own sticky-sweet pulp and juices. This creates a striking, unique coffee that simultaneously dazzles and regales. Kenneth Davids, founder of Coffee Review, awarded our Honeyed Yellow Caturra a score of 94 and shares his enjoyment:

"Elegant flower-bomb. Exhilarating, refreshing meadow flowers, roasted cacao nib, almond in aroma and cup. Delicate, balanced structure. Soft but lively acidity; smooth, plush mouthfeel. Gently but decisively flavor-saturated finish... A unique and precious profile, breezy and meadowy in its floral character, crisply complete." 

A very limited release from our farm in Puna, this micro-lot is a lovechild from the small population of yellow caturra trees scattered throughout our field. The bright yellow coffee cherries are harvested separately from the red and the fruit skin is removed to expose the sticky-sweet pulp surrounding the bean. The coffee is thinly spread on drying racks and gently raked under the sun many times each day to encourage a quick drying time. A few months later, after resting in the sugared coffee shell (parchment), the parchment is removed and the coffee is ready to roast.

Honeyed Yellow Caturra is delicately roasted so you can experience the full spectrum of earthy, syrupy-sweet characteristics this processing method engenders. The profile is a stark departure from the other coffees in our Kazumura line.

    FULFILLMENT TIMES

    Orders are roasted Sunday-Thursday and shipped Monday-Friday. Roast dates are applied to your order.

    We cannot ship Fedex packages on Friday, Saturdays nor Sunday.

    ESPRESSO BITES

    Because Espresso Bites are made without stabilizers or preservatives, they may bloom or melt when shipping temperatures exceed 80 F. If this is a concern in your location please select FedEx shipping.

    If you notice a white color to your bar, it's perfectly safe to eat. This happens when the cocoa butter softens and migrates to the surface. It happens more often when shipping in warm weather. Learn more about blooming.

    Espresso Bites that melt or bloom when shipped via FedEx are eligible for a full refund or credit.

    Espresso Bites that melt or bloom when the buyer elects Free Shipping or standard USPS are eligible for a credit.

    If your order is incorrect or damaged in any way, please email us at hello@bigislandcoffeeroasters.com with your order number within 7 days of receiving your order.

    Pleasantly Surprised

    Really surprised and very pleased, Funny thing is the rarest beans some how are the best so far there have been Two I really crave and it’s years between your ability to get them. The Honey yellow caturra is smooth and tasty and if you really brew it correctly and take the time you can taste every flavor we enjoy it immensely. Thank you I truly look for to the next surprise.

    • How did you brew this coffee? Slow drip at 108 deg V cone
