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?
Hunapu, meaning “mountain flower”, is the native Mayan name for the Agua Volcano that presides over the highlands of Antigua, Guatemala. Luis Pedro Zelaya Zemora is a true anchor of Guatemalan specialty coffee: a fourth-generation farmer and agronomist, Zemora grows his own coffees but also buys select, 100% Red Bourbon lots from small local growers. His mill, Beneficio Bella Vista, is well known for its impressive attention to detail and exacting standards for their coffees. Red Bourbons are a beloved Central American varietal with super-bright, gummy-bear fruit flavors, alongside richer notes of chocolate and caramel apple. The UNESCO-protected, volcanic soils of Antigua are the perfect place for coffee plants to flourish.
This is Kuma Coffee’s fifth year in a row with this fantastic coffee, and it just keeps getting better and better. Sweet, silky notes of chocolate and tropical fruit combine into a fantastic, cocktail-like cup. Reserve a bag of Kuma’s Guatemala Hunapu, our Hawaiian fruit punch of a coffee, and give your morning a little extra pizazz. It’ll knock your... slippers off!
Limit three bags per customer. Available while supplies last.
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Really nice coffee, one of the best samples this year, I ordered a bag. Brewed it in a kalita wave and it was outstanding! Very smooth, sugary and fruity. Kuma coffee is an outstanding roaster and procurers of very fine coffee!|
Kelly & Dave B
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Smooth and complex, has some good smokiness. Toffee cream caramel mixed with green apple tartness!|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ A solid offering from Kuma — well balanced, smooth. Maybe not quite as vibrantly flavorful as some of my favorite Guatemalans, but an excellent bean nonetheless.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Both my wife and I thought this was a pleasant Guatemalan. We have found we do not normally like them, however this one was a nice surprise.|

||★★★★★||★★★★★ Second Kuma coffee i taste. The flavor is smooth, clean I would say. Every taste is there.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Very good light roast coffee. Complex but with smooth finish, without the fruity acidity that many lighter fasts have. One of the best light roasts we have received. Overall this roaster does Ana excellent job with all of their coffees. Would recommend to anyone that enjoys light complex coffee.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ When our friends and I decided to go on vacation to Telluride, CO I knew I wanted bean box coffee to be part of the experience! This roast along with four other Bean Box coffees made the flight and were part of every morning! I love how the toffee and notes of apple came through with every sip!|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Really nice roast with light malic acidity and caramel and Dulce de Leche flavors, super clean finish, enjoyed this one a lot.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This is one of my faves to date - the caramel notes are awesome!|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Very yummy coffee with caramel notes. I made it with a chemex and totally enjoyed it.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This coffee has a lot going on in a great way. It seemed a little bit darker than the #2 bean stated on the bag, but I always prefer dark coffee so I was glad. It taste of apple and rich caramel with a hint of citrus in the middle. I would drink this coffee anyday.|
