Hawaiian Maui Coffees

Maui Kaanpali Estate is a unique Hawaiian coffee. The beans are grown by MauiGrown Coffee at Ka‘anapali Estate in the West Maui highlands.

The 500-acre estate is a former State/private project that used coffee to diversify Maui’s sugar plantations. It performed extensive field trials to find Arabicas that grow best in the soil, altitude and climate, while providing the best cup quality and yields. MauiGrown grows the 4 best Arabica types from those field trials: Maui Mokka, Yellow Caturra, Red Catuai and Typica.

Papua New Guinea Sigri

These Sigri coffees are gems - nothing like your traditional PNG coffees. Almost a 0 defect screen with immaculate processing. You can just look at the beans and see the care and time that went into them. Sigri has been in a game for a long time but within the last 5 years has taken quality to a different level.

As with all of our relationships coffees, not only are they changing the coffee game for themselves, but also the whole area and region they are in. They are raising wages and education (and quality) for every farmer around them - the big project this year to unleash for the locals.

All coffee bearing the Sigri name is grown at over 5000 feet elevation. Sigri considers soil and water conservation as a priority, and, the plantation is bird and eco-friendly. The plantation employs a medium density shade strategy, using two types of shade trees. This promotes even ripening of coffee cherries and provides habitat for at least 90 species of birds.

Sigri is a washed Arabica coffee and undergoes a rigorous wet factory process. Quality Control begins in the field; Cherry coffee is hand-picked and carefully checked for uniformity; it must be red and fully ripe which allows for the correct balance of sugar and acid within the cherry. This selected cherry is then pulped on the day of picking.

A fermentation process follows, a period of three days broken every 24 hours by washing – but unlike most other brands, the Sigri process follows this by total immersion in water for a further day, which creates a superior coffee. Careful conditioning of 21 days is followed by hulling, grading, color sorting and finally hand sorting. This combined with rigorous quality control before packing produces the finest green been for which Sigri is renowned.

All grades are then continuously sample-roasted and liquored by experts. This provides a final check on the quality of the green bean product, and is a practice unique in Papua New Guinea.

The quick story of Papua New Guinea Sigri (one can clear up a lot of information when you get on the ground somewhere):

What I and many others thought was Sigri Estate is actually Carpenter Estates – Sigri being only one of the areas of the estate (easily the most famous). The other two are Bunum Wo and Kindbng (sounds like Kin ding). Each of the three produces a different cup quality; PNG being full of microclimates really puts a different spin on each section. Each one is like its own village situated right next to each other, with separate wet mills, drying fields, nurseries, living quarters, and schools for each of the three sections. But they do share a couple facilities (dry mill, bagging, trucking to port) and many staff.

Each of the three sections of Carpenter Estates has separate fields for different strains and top-notch agronomists to grow the best beans. Most of these folks have coffee in their blood. Being a part of the coffee here is a birthright for them (seen as a cradle to the grave philosophy). Great pride all around.

We will provide more information for each coffee from these areas and will share photos and videos. At least for now, you get an idea of where these beans come from.

Democratic Republic of the Congo
Kawa Kabuya Cooperative - Top Lot

Congo Flag

We don't tend to see Congo coffees all that often - rough times for them and hard to organize and get a crop grown and exported in decent shape - were were really excited to see this sample show up - very clean in tones and not such a rough screen - actually quite nicely prepped - 15+ screen.

This coffee comes from the Kawa Kabuya Cooperative located outside of the city of Butembo in North Kivu. Kawa Kabuya Cooperative is part of a larger network of 4 cooperatives made up of around 4,800 farmer members total: Kawa Kabuya, Kawa Kanzururu, Kawa Mabera, and Kawa Kenja. The Kawa Kabuya Cooperative itself is comprised of as many as 20 participating micro mills where the coffee is wet milled before moving to the CAFEKIT dry mill in Butembo. Kawa Kabuya and the other affiliated cooperatives are a product of relationships between local farmers and international NGO's who's main goal is to improve farmer livelihood. By increasing the amount of specialty grade coffee produced for these lots, the cooperative is aiming to have doubled member incomes by 2017. Coffees contributing to this lot are harvested at altitudes between 1500-1800 masl.

Tasting Notes:
A very cool unique cup of coffee - a little fuller bodied and very smooth. A ton of brightness compared to the last lots of Kabuya. The cup puts forth a real nice caramel, smokey sweet tone with maybe just a little hint of light fruit in the acidity. Very clean cup even at the light roast points - we have never actually seen a Congo coffee this clean before - seems the Congo is finally turning its coffee into a premium offering.

Roasting Notes:
This cup is very well balanced and is wonderful at most roasts. We recommend roasting from a Medium to Dark Roast. The bean is denser so allow for longer roasting times.

Kenya AA BCT Top Lot

Beautiful screen and prep - great fresh AA screen.

Kenyan coffee is considered by many to be some of the worlds best.

Kenyans (including this one) are know for their complexity and depth of flavor. You will find all sorts of small minute notes including a refreshing citrus, slight berry, lemongrass, cocoa, molasses and a variety of other.

A little less acidic than some of its cousins but still very crisp and clean.

Tasting Notes:
A very nice darker toned Kenya AA - at light roasts it will still be pretty bright but the brightness mutes up at a strong medium roast. Classic Kenya herbal tone makes it very identifiable. Very clean with increasing body as the roast gets darker. A great balance between citrus, floral, herbal and chocolate. Easy to change the balance of these tones by roast level - a very fun coffee to play around with.

Roasting Notes:
Kenyan coffees can be tricky to roast but not this guy - tasty from light to dark although best balance achieved at a city plus to full city. If you are a bright coffee fan, quick light roasts will be perfect and leave the cup as crisp, sweet and refreshing as it can be. Not such a bright coffee fan? Try drawing out the roast and take it to a full city to a few second into second crack for a much lower acidity cup with a very nice depth of flavors.
