While I was at the festival yesterday, I stopped at the Hoki Poki Hand Picked 100% Estate Kona Coffee booth to meet Suzy. Suzy is the owner of the business that sells 100% Kona Coffee from her uncle's farms, Murasaki Farms. I don't have any photos of the booth, but Suzy had a nice presentation of the family coffee farm in a traditional photo album. I learned as much as I could about Murasaki Farms and the Hoki Poki Kona Coffee as I could in 2 minutes. It was quite a bit considering the crowd of people surrounding the booth attempting to get a sample cup and take a peak at the creative art on a special line of their new packaging. I didn't get a photo of Suzy, but @HNLmark did. [@HNLmark is a fellow coffee enthusiast from Seattle that joins us on our Saturday Twitter #CoffeeCrew Tweetups at Beach Bum Cafe.]
A few bullet points that I am able to remember from the 2 minute presentation are listed below:
- Hoki Poki is 100% Kona Arabica Coffee.
- Single Sourced from the family's farm in Kona, Murasaki Farms.
- The Murasaki Farms has over a 100 years of experience over 3 generations.
- The Hoki Poki branded Kona coffee is a blend of the top 3 grades of Murasaki Farms harvest (there is a percentage of Kona Peaberry in it).
- Hoki Poki recently created an artistic packaging line featuring the creative art by Jenny Lee, Brand Marketing and Creative Director of Hoki Poki 100% Kona Cofffee.
So anyway, I searched my cabinet for my trusty $1 store pour over brewer and a paper filter. I added 2 tablespoons of the 100% ground Kona coffee and measured out 12 ounces of filtered, boiling water and set off to watch my coffee brew for the next few minutes.
|The grind looks a bit coarse.|
|I moistened the grounds with about an ounce of hot water and let is rest for about a minute.|
|Slowly pouring over an ounce or so at a time, watching the coffee oils emerge, anxiously waiting to drink some Hoki Poki... I was ready to turn myself about!|
|Finally, a 12 ounce cup of 100% Hoki Poki Kona Coffee... That's what it's all about!|
