Less well known than its neighbour Kona, the wonderful Ka’u region on the Big Island of Hawaii has 30 different award winning coffee estates and even its own annual coffee festival. Most of the Ka’u coffee is grown in a climatic band from 1,000' to approximately 2,500' above sea level. This region is situated on active volcanoes whose soil is ideal for growing coffee. Combined with the gentle trade winds and regular rainfall, the mountainous tropical climate is perfect for growing the very finest coffee. Ka’u coffee is naturally sweet with an aroma of milk chocolate, molasses, brown sugar and tarty citrus. It has a very clean cup with a long finish.
