Why blend good coffee?
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.
