Monarch Kona Gesha Red Honey

Flavors of jam, nougat, and floral

Aloha! This Reserve lot from Hawai’i’s Monarch Coffee showcases one of the world’s most prized coffee varietals: Gesha. Its distinctive character, terroir, and masterful processing coalesce into a coffee with surpassing flavor. A truly one-of-a-kind lot— custom-made for Olympia Coffee.

High humidity and frequent afternoon rains make honey processing rare on the Hawaiian islands. Monarch carefully babied this lot, pulping it with a good amount of sticky fruit clinging to the seed. This allowed the fruity flavors to permeate the seed, which also took on the fruit's reddish color. Each afternoon, as the humidity climbed, this lot was carefully moved to a covered air-conditioned room for slow drying, thus lowering the moisture content.

The Agtron scale ranges from 0 to 100, with 0 being the darkest and 100 being the lightest. The most common range for roasted coffee is typically between 25 (very dark) and 75 (very light).
