The Ka'u coffee growers are winning national and international awards. Here's the an example from the 2010 Hawaii Coffee Association Cupping Competition: :Rusty's Hawaii 100% Ka'u Coffee earned the top award at the Hawaii Coffee Association's annual cupping competition. With a score of 91.1 out of 100 points, the winning coffee ranked the highest of 67 entries from coffee growers throughout Hawaii. Three other Ka'u coffees scored in the top 10.

Rusty's also won the competition in 2011, coming in tops of 58 entries.

Forget it! I'm a cheap bastard. I'll keep buying Sharkys. But next time I'm on the BI I will drive out there and try some for myself and see what it tastes like.

She sells it at the Farmer's Market in Naalehu. Next time you come to the BI, Dave, come by my house and I'll fix you some. Good stuff!

Babette, I didn't see this post before. Guess I missed it. I would love to go to your place and share a cup of coffee and talk story! Maybe we could go to the bakery and bring some lilikoi malasadas and taro bread! :D :D :D

I really look forward to tasting these and finding out how different they are from Sharky's.

Babette,

No unfortunately I am spending every penny right now to stock up on supplies and stuff. Once we get caught up we'll try and save some money to come out. The prices are going higher and it is getting harder to afford.

On a brighter note I have some lilikoi cheesecake today at the Honolulu Country Club! :D :D :D
