LAHAINA - Love is in the air at the MauiGrown Coffee Company Store in Lahaina, where they've been featuring their special MauiGrown French Kiss and MauiGrown Golden French Kiss during the month of February.
Made from exceptional coffee varietals grown on the Ka`anapali Coffee Farms community in West Maui, both brews offer the ultimate indulgence for coffee connoisseurs.
MauiGrown French Kiss, a blend of 100 percent Maui Red Catuai variety of coffees, is a seductive, dark roast experience. French roasted and then kissed with medium and dark roasts of the same variety, MauiGrown French Kiss delivers a buttery full-bodied coffee with low acidity.
MauiGrown Coffee Company Store’s partner Diane Boyd and barista Maria Holmes show their French “Kiss” products offered at their Lahaina store during the month of February.
MauiGrown Golden French Kiss is a more mysterious dark roast experience. Made from 100 percent Maui Yellow Caturra variety of coffees, it is French roasted and kissed with medium and dark roasts. Subtle hints of allspice add a bit of mystery. The coffee is also low in acidity.
Love is also in the roasting. MauiGrown Coffee roasts in Lahaina. Each of the two blends contains three different roast levels, and each roast level brings out a different nuance of the coffee variety. Then the three different roasts, in different ratios, are combined to make for greater depth and body that lingers. The result is a one-of-a-kind MauiGrown Coffee experience.
Throughout the year, MauiGrown Coffee Company Store has been fueling the public's love affair with 100 percent MAUI Origin coffee, and those who crave exceptional coffee grown on Maui have become their biggest fans.
"It all starts with the coffee bean," said Jeff Ferguson, co-owner of the MauiGrown Coffee Company Store. "A lot of love is put into these arabica coffee varietals that are grown and nurtured by veteran farmers year-round at Ka`anapali Coffee Farms, a residential/farming community renowned for producing outstanding coffee."
The theory of "quality from seed to cup" best describes the planning and operation of MauiGrown Coffee. According to Kimo Falconer, president of MauiGrown Coffee Inc. and co-partner of the store, continued improvements in the farm's production techniques are yielding a more exceptional cup of coffee.
Great news for MauiGrown Coffee fans who continue to enjoy the fruits of their labor at the company store located on Lahainaluna Road adjacent to the historic smokestack. Not only are February's "Kisses" (the coffee kind) available at the store for sampling and purchase, but other popular flavors as well - MauiGrown's famous Maui Mokka, MauiGrown Peaberry (a blend of Yellow Caturra, Typica and Red Catuai), Lahaina Beach (blend of 100 percent Red Catuai variety), just to name a few. A 12-ounce cup of 100 percent MauiGrown Coffee is only $1.50.
However, you need not be on-island to enjoy these delicious coffees; you can also order online. The store ships to anywhere in the world.
