For many people, coffee is an every day essential, so it’s important to up your coffee game with some of the best in Hawaii. HI Now hosts Kanoe Gibson and Kainoa Carlson are in the kitchen getting a taste of what Ka’u Coffee Mill has to offer.

The award-winning Hawaiian coffee farm and roaster is located on the south side of Hawaii Island, and they’re a full service coffee mill. You can get its classic dark and medium roasts, or even flavored coffees made in small batches by hand. Currently, their retail store and tours are closed, but you can always order your your favorites online at kaucoffeemill.com.

At its farm on Hawaii Island, you’ll find the largest deposit of ash-based soil where Ka’u Coffee Mill grows its coffee trees. This coffee growing region provides a unique climate for the growing of specialty coffee.

In order to ensure the highest levels of quality for its coffee, everything is harvested by hand using a team of skilled pickers. Ka’u Coffee utilizes selective harvesting, picking only the ripest, reddest cherries. Next, it uses three processing methods: Washed, Semi-washed and Natural.

Ka’u Coffee’s award winning Ka’u coffee beans are fresh roasted daily to provide maximum freshness and flavor. The art of roasting is a lifetime learning process. That’s why Ka’u Coffee is continuously striving to perfect the art and craft of roasting by furthering its roasters’ knowledge and skills in the history, fundamentals, and science of coffee roasting.

The exquisite and delicate taste of Ka’u coffee is best roasted at a low heat, medium flavor profile. It produces sample batches, taking great care to cup each batch and develop the most suitable flavor profiles for each roast type offered.
