Hawaiian coffee blend Tag

Use the right type of coffee maker.  We recommend a French press or any other type of filterless coffee maker.  Filters don't just keep grounds from getting into your coffee.  They also filter out the oils that provide flavor. Take your time.  We recommend one rounded tablespoon of ground coffee per cup of water, and recommend that you use a fine grind.  You'll vary that according to your personal tastes, but no matter what your cofee to water ratio, let it steep for at least 3 minutes (5 is better) to allow the coffee to develop all its flavors. We provide cupping instructions for your convenience with every order.

Each Hawaiian island has a very different climate, producing coffee beans with a wide range of flavors.  Some are rich and earthy.  Others have flavors of cinnamon, chocolate and nutmeg.  Each type of nkope coffee bean from Oahu, Maui, Hawaii and Kauai is roasted at just the right time and temperature to bring out the best flavors from each type.  Some beans are roasted twice to bring out even more flavor.  Blending the roasted beans brings all those flavors together in each cup of nkope, for a rich, complex beverage that has no "bitter" after taste.  You can think of nkope as the Petrus Pomerol of coffees.
