Silky and sugary, fragrant and fruit-punchy: this small lot, volcano-grown red bourbon is a true summer special. Notes of chocolate and punchy tropical fruit combine into a fantastic, cocktail-like cup. It’ll knock your... slippers off!
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.
"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!"
"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. "
"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! "
