Sun Dried Typica Receives 90-Point Score from Coffee Review!

Sun Dried Typica, our second, hand-picked, small-batch Seed to Cup Project coffee received a 90-point score from Coffee Review. As the world's leading coffee guide, receiving high marks from Coffee Review is an exceptional achievement. Coffees scored at 90 and above are considered outstanding specialty coffee.
Sun Dried Typica is the highest-scoring Kauai Coffee to date and we are excited about the next season of Seed to Cup project coffee.

About the Seed to Cup Project

In 2016, Kauai Coffee Roastmaster and licensed Q Arabica Grader, Mike Shimatsu, created the Seed to Cup Project and began experimenting with yeast fermentation and processing methods. Since then, Kauai Coffee has been pushing the boundaries of flavors and processing techniques to produce high-quality, small-batch coffee that is gaining recognition on the world stage.

Coffee Review

Kauai Coffee Company Estate Reserve Sun Dried Typica Review Date: August 2019 Read the complete assessment on the Coffee Review website

Blind Assessment:

Balanced, crisply sweet. Cocoa, peach, oak, almond, grapefruit zest in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned, brisk structure with a savory edge; soft, plush mouthfeel. Peach, nut and oak carry into a sweet-toned though roundly drying finish.


Kauai Coffee, Hawaii’s largest coffee producer, operates a popular visitor center and tasting room on its farm on the south coast of the Hawaiian island of Kauai. This coffee is a special, small-lot offering consisting entirely of the classic Hawaiian Typica variety, which is hand-picked, processed by the traditional ferment-and-wash method, and sun-dried. Visit www.kauaicoffee.com for more information.

The Bottom Line:

Quiet, round, crisply balanced, with sweet stone fruit and cocoa supported by savory-leaning nut and oak.
