Hawaiian Kona – Pau Hana Estate
Pau Hana Estate has been owned and farmed by Carol Weaver since 2006. It is five acres and contains 3,500 Kona trees. It’s located up the slopes of Mauna Loa volcano, one mile from the village of Captain Cook at an elevation of 2,400 feet. This coffee comes from a farm previously known as the Woods Estate, distinguished by its relatively high growing altitude and three Kona Coffee Cupping Contest trophies. It is no wonder that Pau Hana Estate has won these awards at the Kona Coffee Cupping Contests, judged by professional judges from Gevalia Kaffee: 1st 2001, 3rd in 2002, 2nd 2006. Carol ensures the best depth and flavors are maintained with fastidious fertilizing and hand picking.
Coffee Review Assessment: Sweetly and roundly pungent; deep. Dark chocolate, juicy, grape-like fruit, quietly lush flowers, fresh-cut fir in aroma and cup. Round, balanced acidity; lightly syrupy, lively mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates in a crisp, gently dry, cocoa-toned finish. Overall Score: 92
