The tropical Hawaiian island of Kauai is geologically the oldest of the main Hawaiian Islands. At over 1200 hectares, the Kauai Coffee Company (formerly McBryde Sugar Company) is the largest coffee grower in Hawaii. This venerable coffee varietal (Arabica Typica) is fully washed. The warm Pacific sun, rich volcanic earth, abundant mountain rain and cool trade winds of Kauai create ideal conditions for growing outstanding coffee. Nutty, medium to high acidity. Best suited to gentle brewing (e.g., cafetiere).
