Curator's Notes

Silky and sugary, fragrant and fruit-punchy: this small lot, volcano-grown Red Bourbon is a true summer special. Guatemala Hunapu is just arrived from Kuma Coffee, a small Seattle roaster known for their bright and sparkling single origins. With its sugary-sweet blend of tropical fruit notes, creamy milk chocolate, and pineapple-cake finish, this cup reminds us of a tiki cocktail, a tropical punch served poolside. Did someone order an umbrella drink?

Roaster's Notes

The Guatemala Hunapu is one of the most consistent coffees we purchase every year, going on 5 years now. Maybe it's the volcanic soil, or it's the careful hand picking, the elevation or the selective sorting, or a combination of them all. We can't get enough of it, we just love it. Hunapu is the native Mayan name for the Agua Volcano that looms over the Antigua highlands. Luis Pedro Zelaya Zemora purchases only 100% bourbon from small farmers who grow on 1-5 acre parcels clinging to the side of this volcano. Zelaya's mill, Bella Vista, processes only the ripest red bourbon cherries. Lots are created through combining top quality day-lots from multiple producers . This method of combing lots creates some very complex profiles. Purchasing Hunapu supports smaller farmers that otherwise don't produce enough coffee to find customers to sell to directly. It is delicious, with a focused milk chocolate sweetness, bright fruit punch undertones and a pleasing pineapple acidity.

"This is the best coffee "

"Not our favorite - a little too sweet for our tastes, and cream didn't help. But if you like a sweet base for your coffee, go for it!!"

"Not a fan of this one. Starts off good, but just did not like the fruity finish."

"The aroma when the bag is opened is chocolate, sweet and fruity. One time I did get a scent of pineapple and had to use more to get the brew I liked. I'm going to try it in my automatic basic drip pot. Too much dairy didn't help."

"I have a soft spot for Kuma coffee, because like an encounter with a bear, it is always memorable, even if it not always comforting... this coffee is a bit challenging, but it has such a creamy mouthfeel that is hard to match. I taste grapefruit throughout, followed by fresh pressed olive oil, it has a raw vegetal quality that is like under ripe rhubarb, and a floral shadow, magnolia but mixed with fresh straw bails."

"Ok so I personally haven’t tried this one since I’m allergic to pineapple. Major bummer! But my husband tried it (barely) and isn’t a big fan of this one. He said he doesn’t like “really fruity coffees” like this one. I’m so sad I can’t try it for myself but I don’t want to end up covered in hives so I’ll pass. "

"I was not a fan of this blend. I could definitely taste pineapple. It tasted sour and I thought there was something wrong. I added creamer to my coffee and I thought maybe the creamer had gone bad. "

"Pineapple in coffee?! Yes, please! This was a gift and we loved it. "
MATTHEW 09/29/2020

"Incredibly clean and smooth, bright with a thicker mouthfeel than most light roasts. Juicy and acidic, more complex than a lot of fruit forward roasts that blast you with blueberry or grapefruit. This one is more of a familiar crowd pleaser than a lot of its light roast counterparts"

"I didn’t care for this flavor. It was interesting and definitely had a pineapple flavor, but I wouldn’t want to get this one again unfortunately. "
