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

  • Roast:
    medium  Origin: Puna coffee
  • Barrel-Aged Puna listed in Coffee Review's "Top 30 Coffees of 2019"

    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.

    • How did you brew this coffee? I have a Jura espresso machine that grinds and prepares it.

    Barrel Aged Puna, a truly incredible coffee

    Since I live in Honolulu I have to great fortune of trying out many of the locally grown coffees. However, once I had Barrel Aged Puna, I really was amazed. Every cup of this coffee has been an ecstatic experience with regard to taste. I know I must have bought out the local supply!

    Exceptional, Flavorful, Fresh Coffee

    We LOVE Big Island Roasters! This is our very favorite coffee. If you have never had any of the Barrel Aged beans, do yourself a favor and order it. We save it for a special treat, and my husband can smell it the minute I grind it. It has the most unique flavor of any coffee we have tried. We can't wait to try more varieties.
