How to Select the Right `Ihilani Coffee For You
All of our coffee is packaged in a special air tight one way valve bag to release the natural CO2 that is created by the coffee bean and to inhibit entry of oxygen. We offer only whole bean roasted coffee in the shopping cart on this site. These measures insure that your `Ihilani roasted coffee stays as fresh as possible.
If you want your coffee ground, simply place your order on the site and then give us a call or email and
let us know you'd like your coffee ground instead of whole bean.

A Word About Roasts:
Many people truly don't understand the difference in roasts for coffee beans. We take into account the profile of
each batch of green bean and roast in small artisanal batches to the peak of flavor for each type of bean.
Our "gold standard" roast for these exceptional coffees is medium brown dry, 55 on the Agtron scale.
If you truly prefer the flavor of a dark roast,
other roasts are available but will delay your shipment for up to a week.
`Ihilani coffees are shipped to you fresh custom roasted for best quality and flavor.
A surprising number of folks believe that the dark roast is what gives their coffee the "wake-up" factor. The reality is that a darker roasts cooks out progressively more of the caffeine. Dark roasts also force the oil to the outside of the bean, and that oil very quickly goes rancid. This leaves a very dry inner bean, which shatters in a grinder leaving some very bitter dust. Until relatively recently, coffee consumers haven't had much choice as to the species, processing, and roast of their beans. Our palates were bogged down in the truth that a dark roast will cover the off flavors of inferior beans. So unless a slap to your taste buds is what wakes you up, the dark roast myth is just that...a myth.
We encourage you to discover a kinder, gentler awakening to your day...we like to think of it as waking naturally on a bright and beautiful day, instead of the harsh call of the alarm clock. `Ihilani coffees will give you the best
of all worlds--the rich and complex flavors of these unique premium estate coffees
right alongside the clarity that good coffee brings.
