TIED FIRST PLACE WITH A KONA ESTATE COFFEE IN THE 2014 HAWAII ANNUAL COFFEE CUPPING COMPETITION.Our Whales Tales Roast features the famous Maui Mokka bean. It's an Arabica varietal originally from Ethiopia, via Kona to Maui. The distance it traveled to get to our West Maui Mountains is somewhat miraculous-- not dissimilar to the months of travel that whales make on an annual basis to give birth and train their young in the warm, shallow Maui waters. The bean is hard to farm and it produces a very small size bean that many mistake for a peaberry. Due to its small size and yield, the Mokka bean is highly prized on Maui. The taste is as delicate as the bean-- soft chocolate and caramel notes, low acidity.The Whales Tales is roasted to a city-medium finish.It's our special occasion and favorite dessert coffee at the Cafe, and we hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do.Our coffee bags are recyclable, and the foil lining with degassing value and resealable ziplock closure maximize freshness to you.We roast every Monday and Thursday, so we ship every Tuesday and Friday. Let us send a bit of paradise your way! Aloha always.
