Each year Big Island Coffee Roasters cup dozens of coffees from different farms in Ka'u covering the three primary growing areas within Ka'u: Cloud's Rest, Wood Valley, and Pear Tree. They look for coffees with high levels of caramel-like sweetness, roasted nuts (often pecans or hazelnuts), and notes of apricot or peach.
The combination ripe-red harvesting and skillful washed processing makes this buttery-sweet Kaʻu coffee an absolute knockout.
