Product Description

Cupping Lesson + Farm Tour!

Available by appointment only Monday-Thursday, at 3PM.

 

Rooster Farms is the oldest certified organic farm in Hawai'i!

Begin with a full farm tour -- we start with a tasting our freshly-brewed 100% Kona coffee on the spot, 1 each of our Medium and our Dark roasts. 

Learn about the history and process of the farm, of Kona coffee in particular; its flavors, what it means to be a single origin coffee, its history, and how coffee is made-

- Unusual to most Kona coffee farms, we do every step from Seed to Cup so you will learn about every stage of coffee from hand-harvesting, all stages of processing, down to the final roast.

After the tasting and viewing our trees and facilities, you will take a hands-on introductory cupping lesson.  While a sommelier is a professional taster of wine, fir coffee, it is called a Cupper.  Wine is such a rich and complex drink due to it containing about 600 flavor compounds -- coffee has about 800!

Learn about the many interesting flavor notes found in coffee, how to train your palate to be attuned to flavor sensing, and what goes into making a delicious cup.

Cupping lessons are 45 dollars per person, with a minimum of 2 people. 

Take home a little bit of knowledge one step closer to being a coffee aficionado from one of the most sought-after coffee regions in the world!

Available By Appointment Only, Mondays.
