Yellow Caturra Cherries


MauiGrown Coffee is the grower of Ka'anapali Estate Coffee located on the West Maui Mountains near the historic town of Lahaina. The 500-acre estate grows several varieties of Arabica coffees. The theory of “quality from seed to cup” best describes the planning and operation of MauiGrown Coffee.

MauiGrown Coffee, Inc. was established in 2003 by James (Kimo) Falconer. From 1988 through 2001, the farm was operated as Kaanapali Estate Coffee, a diversified AG project of Pioneer Mill Sugar Company. As director of Agricultural research for Pioneer Mill at the time, Kimo was instrumental in the genesis of this coffee. After Pioneer Mill Company and Kaanapali Estate Coffee closed their operations in 2001, it was Falconer's dream to revive the coffee farm. His hard work and dedication led to MauiGrown Coffee harvesting its first crop in 2004.

Yellow Caturra is a sub-species of Arabica coffee. It is called “Yellow” Caturra because the cherry ripens yellow instead of the conventionally recognized red color. There is a Red Caturra as well, this as similar to other varieties that are named by their colors like Red Catuai and Pink Bourbon. Caturra is a derivative of C. Arabica found in Brazil in 1950 and sent to Kona from El Salvador in 1954.

The dry fragrance of this coffee unfolds into nuances of fruit and banana. It's a nice chocolaty coffee, with notes of sweet fruits and brown sugar. There are also subtle floral notes and hints of herbal tea. The body and acidity in the cup are light, and the aftertaste slowly fades into a natural sweetness. Great with cream. I've tried this coffee over the past 4 years, and this is the best crop to date.
