About the bean:
The Kona Coffee Belt on the Big Island of Hawaii is one of the world's premier coffee growing regions. High altitudes, deep volcanic soils, cool mornings, warm afternoons and natural shading has produced simply one of the world's best coffees.
Expect a medium body, fine acidity and an aroma reminiscent of a buttery richness with cinnamon and clove overtones. The caffeine level is slightly higher than average.
Captain's Ohana Farm is located on the Big Island of Hawaii in the Kona Coffee district just above Pu'uhonua O Honaunau (Place of Refuge). Here, the rich soil accentuates the superb flavour of the area's gourmet offerings, that have been hand picked and sun dried.
Roasting recommendation: Roast the Kona light to medium to capture its delicate bright notes. Once brewed, its light and mild body, superb aroma, and sweet and clear mellow flavour will send you into raptures.

About the bean:
Ethiopia, the legendary home of the coffee plant and Africa's largest exporter, grows remarkably varied and distinctive beans. One of the very finest comes from the Yirgacheffe region -- the only coffee allowed in the palaces of Ethiopian kings. Today, this bean, which grows in high elevations under a soft canopy of native shade trees, is developing an almost cult-like following among bean aficionados. Widely recognized as one of the world's most exquisite coffees, Yirgacheffe's fragrant and flowery citrus note sets it apart from any other bean you will encounter. Many compare its rich flavor to that of burgundy wines.
To best bring out Yirgacheffe's subtleties, roast it medium. Consider blending it to add nuance to other coffees. A few like it roasted dark: Yirgacheffe then becomes sharply pungent but very thin, bereft of all its flowery and fruity notes.
