100% Ka'u Coffee from the island of Hawaii.
Legend has it that the first Polynesians to step foot in Hawaii may have landed in Ka'u. There is archaeological evidence supporting the supposition of a landing near Ka Lae, as the Hawaiians call the most southern tip of the island of Hawaii.
The remote region of Ka'u has long been associated with sugar cane and macadamia nuts, but in the last decade it has soared to the top of the world’s specialty coffee scene. Owing in large part to the efforts of independent small farmers, Ka’u coffee has achieved world-renowned status for its quality of coffee. Coffee produced in this region of Hawaii continues to grow more complex and higher quality every year. When you taste Ka’u you will enjoy the vibrancy and honey notes of citrus flowers and dried fruit in its bouquet.
