Wine-Like Kona Geisha Coffee

Carbonic maceration is a Beaujolais wine-making technique that often produces juicy, fruit-forward wines. Recently it's been experimentally practiced by coffee producers, resulting in coffees with powerful berry flavors, aromatic intensity, and sweetness.

This is an extremely rare version of an already rare coffee. Once it's out, it's out.


Geisha coffee is a variety that originated in Ethiopia, renowned for the aromatic, complex, floral, and fruit-forward profile it produces. Due to rarity and demand, Geisha coffees can reach up to $600 per lb, and retail in cafes for $9-$18/ cup.

To cultivate this rare Kona Geisha the family practices cover-cropping, composting and interplanting to protect the ecosystem and attract butterflies, bees, and pollinators to their land.

Their commitment to maintaining healthy soil and perfect harvesting has paid off in the form of their numerous awards, like earning Grand Champion in the 2018 Hawaii Coffee Association Cupping Competition, and 1st place in the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival.

    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.

    Kona Geisha Rocks

    Very pleased. Geisha, grown in Kona and processed by carbonic maceration makes for an exceptionally flavorful cup of coffee. Well done.
