About

While Yellow Caturra coffee varieties are often used in coffee blends, this amazing Direct Trade Maui Yellow Caturra coffee stands alone as a clean, full-bodied cup that you can't miss out on. With initial tasting notes of honey wheat bread and allspice, this Maui coffee rounds off beautifully sweet with hints of juicy fig jam.

Maui Yellow Caturra is an extremely interesting type of coffee. Caturra is a mutation of C. Arabica, a Brazilian coffee found around 1950. The beans were eventually sent to Kona by way of El Salvador via quarantine in the mid 1950's. This Maui coffee varietal performs well in the hot, dry season and has excellent flavorful and spiced characteristics.

Timeline

Harvest and export times are based off when a particular coffee will be at its peak quality. Cherries picked at the start of the harvest season tend to be underdeveloped, and those picked at the end are often overdeveloped, so producers aim for that sweet spot in the middle.

Oct - Mar

Export
