Maui - Red Catuai Natural
This exotic coffee is fuller bodied, yet smooth. Exhibits a subtle sweetness and mild spice overtones.
This is another wonderful offering from Maui Hawaii.
Maui Red Catuai offers you a clean, medium bodied coffee with hints of cabernet, soft chocolaty aromas and lower acidity.
Soft winey notes combined with a subtle spiciness offer a well rounded cup with a mellow mouth feel.
The very nice chocolaty finish completes the experience of our Maui Red Catuai, making it an overall well balanced cup of Joe suitable for any time of day.
If you are seeking an all around mellow cup of coffee, then look no further!
Roast Level / Profile Notes:
We prefer to roast our Maui Red Catuai to a Full City Roast
to bring out the best profile and balance. Nice and smooth at this roast level.
We are always happy to accommodate any roast level you prefer.
The notes below illustrate how changing the roast will change the profile:
- City Roast (light roast) - This roast level will liven up profile by highlighting the spice and wine notes. This is a good choice if you prefer bright and snappy.
- Full City Roast (medium roast) - Our preferred roast, will provide the 'sweet spot' for an all around great cup.
- Full City (+) Roast (medium dark roast) - This roast level will bring out the milk chocolate, dark wine notes, deepening the body.
- Darker Roasts - Will definitely bring out the dark chocolate notes. The roast level will triumph over the natural qualities of the bean, but would be suitable for a light bodied dark roast coffee..
From Maui Hawaii, the Red Catuai is a semi-dwarf bean that is a cross between the Caturra and Mundo Novo varietal's.
The well balanced acidity is due to the Hawaiian volcanic soil where the coffee is grown at 500ft or more above sea level.
All of the Red Catuai coffee is hand selected and naturally processed.
