“Hawaiian festival of the Harvest Season”.
Flavor notes of sweet cocoa, cherry, and brown sugar. The Makahiki season is an ancient Hawaiian festival of the Harvest Season which celebrates the bounty of the land. As in our blend, we pay homage to the season by offering an ever evolving mix of coffees.
Our Makahiki coffee was previously known as our Honolulu Blend.

How should I brew my coffee?
The best coffee is coffee that you love. That said, there are basics for making the most of every brew, such as:
• Brewing Water Temperature: 195-205 F
• Clean, filtered Water
• Proper steep time for the grind setting: Coarse Grind = long brew time, Fine Grind = short brew time
• Proper Coffee to Water Ratio: 1 gram of coffee for every 16 ml (or g) of water
• A consistent grind particle size: Use a burr grinder if possible
• Coffee that is not too far off-roast
We love brewing the Kalita and French Press in particular. Get our recipes here!
