Unique and Bold
100% Kauai Coffee Estate Reserve is the top of the crop. Our single-origin varietals and unique artisan options showcase the range of exceptional Hawaiian coffee. Add them to your shopping list to elevate your at-home coffee collection and taste paradise.
Acaia is a unique variety because it is derived from a cross of Typica and Bourbon varieties. It originated in Brazil and is a cultivar closely related to Mundo Novo. Acaia produces a larger bean and fruit. It has a sweet fragrance with hints of chocolate, caramel, and nut, finishing with bright citrus and sweet tea-rose as it cools when roasted. Kauai Coffee Acaia brews a smooth, frothy cup with flavor attributes of milk chocolate, mocha, and caramel notes. The finish is bright and sweet.
The Blue Mountain varietal was introduced to Kauai Coffee in 1990. The seeds were collected from the University of Hawaii varietal trial plot, and a single field was planted at Kauai Coffee in collaboration with the University of Hawaii and the Hawaii Agriculture Research Center. Originally the Blue Mountain seeds were obtained from Jamaica. Once they were grown and established on our farm, the name was changed to Kauai Blue Mountain. The Blue Mountain variety is originally from Typica ancestry, but the Kauai Coffee is unique because it has other varietal influence crossbreeding early in its development.
Our Kauai Blue Mountain coffee is a unique, well-balanced coffee with a malty flavor and fruity notes. The ultimate expression of island coffee - smooth, mild, and subtle with a pleasantly bright aftertaste.
When it comes to coffee, peaberry describes the coffee bean itself, not the origin or variety. Also referred to as caracol (Spanish for snail), peaberry coffee is a naturally occurring mutation in arabica and robusta coffee varieties where only one bean develops inside the coffee cherry instead of two.
Because peaberries are the only seed inside the coffee cherry, they tend to be smaller, rounder, and denser than their two-seeded counterparts. These characteristics can affect how evenly the bean roasts, which can affect the flavor. Peaberry lovers and some professional coffee graders also believe that because the single peaberry bean receives all the nutrients of the coffee cherry rather than sharing with another seed, peaberries can have more caffeine and taste sweeter than other beans as well.
Our Dark Roast Estate Reserve Peaberry is intense and lively with a pleasantly dry and smoky character. Medium Roast Estate Reserve Peaberry offers an arousing cup of coffee with a sweet fragrance and bright, citrusy flavor notes. It is a coffee brimming with tropical sunshine!
Catuai was introduced to the Kauai Coffee Farm in 1987 with seeds acquired from Brazil. Today, Red and Yellow Catuai make up a little more than 80% of the coffee grown on the Kauai Coffee Farm, with 5% being Red Catuai and nearly 76% being Yellow Catuai. 100% Kauai Coffee Red Catuai is a mild to medium-bodied coffee, touched by a smooth, sweet finish with a hint of cardamom.
Don't miss our Roastmasters’ favorite! Kope Olenalena is a medium/light roasted and delivers a smooth, pleasant, and mellow coffee with good body. Roastmasters Mike and Jorge recommend preparing Kope ‘Olenalena in a French Press or Chemex for a bright, complex cup.
