are participants in a number of international competitions as jurors,
such as the Cup of Excellence, now held in about eight countries a
year. These competitions seek to rank the best coffee in a particular
country in a given year. The coffees are later auctioned and the best
fetch a considerable price due to their excellence and scarceness. Some
Serious Select coffees derive from other single country competitions,
some from private auctions - like the world renowned Hacienda Esmeralda
from Panama - and still others are the product of experimentation by
growers pushing the envelope.
sought after and often more expensive coffees are what Serious Select
is all about. We will roast and ship Serious Select coffees on
Tuesdays, one or more coffees per week, so you may enjoy these coffees
at their absolute peak of flavor.

Rusty's Hawaiian Kenya Style Typica
Rusty's is a grower and processor in Ka'u, the other great coffee growing area on the island of Hawaii. Adjacent to Kona, Ka'u is located on the volcanic southern coast and contains, in fact, the southermost point of the United States.
Rusty's is a very experimental company. They grow some of their own coffee, testing how different varietals take to their climates, and, they add further complexity by taking these beans and putting them through different processing methods. In other words different types of coffee cherries with a variation of routes to finished, dried coffee beans ready for roasting. This coffee is grown and processed by Rusty's on their Ka'u property. But, they also purchase cherry from other growers in both Ka'u and adjacent Kona and do custom processing. With small production and high quality, the coffee is in big demand by top roasters.
