For the third time, a Grand Champion of Hawaiian Coffee has been crowned by the The Hawaii Coffee Association, and for the second time in two years, that champion is Rusty’s Hawaiian 100% Ka’u Coffee. This statewide cupping competition evaluates coffees from farms throughout Hawaii. Rusty's is the Grand Champion, with 91.1 points out of 100.
Rusty’s finished top in the cupping competition held during the 16th Annual Conference and Trade Show at the Hilton Waikoloa Village. The HCA joined with Coffee Fest, a national coffee industry trade show, to co-host the three-day event.
58 premium Hawaiian coffees from eight districts were judged by a panel of six coffee industry professionals in a blind tasting.
Congratulations Lori Obra and team. If you'd like to try the award-winning coffee from the Big Island that delivers, Klatch is roasting a limited amount of Rusty's Hawaiian Typica.
