The tasting note "oatmeal raisin cookie" didn't make the cut, but you can't help but think of cookies as you're drinking this delightful Honeyed Waialua coffee.

Honeyed Waialua is a unique Oahu coffee that's fermented in the 'honey process' style, with the addition of white wine yeast. There's no honey or wine in the coffee - these are processing techniques used by producers to naturally enhance the flavors, mouthfeel, and shelf life of certain coffees.

For centuries vintners have been adding yeast to their wine, while coffee producers have largely relied on wild yeasts for fermentation. In a coffee such as this, white wine yeasts have been carefully selected and added to the coffee cherry to enhance fermentation. This selective fermentation is new in the coffee industry and consistently has been shown to create higher scoring coffees.

The wine yeasts create a super full-bodied, medium roast coffee by leaving molecularly heavy chains of sugar (polysaccharides) behind. They also extend the shelf life and add a hint of fruit flavor to the coffee.

Don't pass up the chance to experience this syrupy and unique honeyed & wine yeast processed Oahu coffee while you have the chance! We also carry it as a dark roast for a limited time.

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.

Another favourite!

The coffees i receive from Big Island Roasters are all exceptional. Low acidity, big flavours and subtle tasting notes. These are the highlight of most days. A simple "coffee break" becomes a slice of heaven! Thank you Big Island Roasters!!!
