  • Tasting notes: Pecan, caramel, cinnamon and spruce with juicy elements of orange and vanilla; bright and sweet
  • Origin: Ka’u coffee, Big Island
  • Roast: medium


Each year, we taste dozens of Ka'u coffees from farms across the region. Ka’u coffee is actually cultivated across three primary growing areas: Cloud's Rest, Wood Valley, and Pear Tree.

As part of this, we look for Ka'u coffees that showcase the very best that the region has to offer. This often means a natural caramel-like sweetness, notes of roasted pecans, and a juicy, citrusy sweetness, reminiscent of tangerine or peach.

Of those we taste, we select only the best Ka'u coffee, and blend them to create our signature 100% Ka'u Morning Glory coffee.

While each individual coffee in this 100% Ka'u coffee blend might be slightly different, we find that in the end, they complement each other nicely. As such, Ka’u Morning Glory has long and juicy fruit tones with a medium-full body and a sweet candied nut finish.

A step by step guide on how to brew Chemex coffee, featuring 100% Hawaiian coffee from the Ka'u district.

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.
