Our Kope Kapuna combination was a 2007 Holiday hit. So rather than keeping the secret limited edition, we decided to make it permanent in our offerings. Russ concocted this bean combo with plenty of Hawaiian flair and nostalgia.

In keeping with the season's pleasures, the Kope Kapuna blend is chocolatey, fruity, and spicy. It’s perfect for a chilly holiday morning––and now, every morning!

Yesterday was my first attempt at roasting green coffee beans in a hot air popcorn popper. Roasted beans about 45 seconds into 2nd crack, degassed for approx. 15 hrs., ground beans ( "fine" grind) and brewed (with AeroPress) my first cup ever of home roasted coffee. WOW! This is an excellent blend, and it tastes exactly as CBC described it. Incredible! Was beginners luck in choosing (and roasting) this blend. It made the BEST cup of coffee I have ever (honestly) had. Hope you can keep the Kope Kapuna Blend in stock - I buy more as long as you carry it. Many thanks to CBC for getting me started in home roasting their excellent green coffee beans! Jim (in New Mexico, USA).

This is a great blend. It is very rich and complex while also being very smooth on the finish. The chocolate is first and foremost, but there are also hints of nuts and fruit. The finish lingers and begs for you to take another sip. I roasted it to just before second crack. This is the best coffee I have had all year. I am glad they are continuing to offer it. -Dave (phisherman)
Thanks, Dave; to clarify, this was our Holiday Blend for 2007 and we will continue to carry it as long as the individual ingredients are available; remember: coffee is a crop, not a manufactured product.

Bought a pound to try a couple different roast profiles. I roasted the first trial half pound to the first sounds of second crack before starting the cooling cycle on my Fresh Roast. After degassing for 3 days the flavors are wonderful. Spicy peppery undercurrents with hints of cinnamon for me. Love it. Will take the next roast a little further into second crack to see what develops.

I do not have the defined pallet to express the nuances of this blend but if you like Obeano Latte blend this is worth a try. I always get Obeano Latte and buy something along side to try, very few do I ever give a second chance but this one is my new go-to. I like it better than Obeano Latte which I normally buy in 10# bags. I roast well into second crack, I also roast this coffee slow (app 21 minutes start to finish) in a Kaldi Mini over a Coleman White Gas stove. My profile is not sophisticated, I tend to set it and make minor adjustments to prevent a stall or run-away - I just want a steady ROR. Needless to say, I dark roasted coffee that is strong on flavor, goes well with milk, and is forgiving of the roaster - this coffee fits that bill.

My hopes were high and I wish I could offer a more positive review for this blend, but when roasting my first 1/2 lb in my Behmor yesterday I found that the beans went from first crack to burnt very, very quickly. They were coming along nicely at about 307 degrees and went from a few slow pops to a sudden, continual chorus of snaps for about 20-30 seconds. Smoke started pouring out of the roaster and I immediately removed the beans, which were now a deep, oily black. Next time, if I try this blend again, I'll go for a lower temp and pull them sooner. I'm concerned that will diminish the depth of flavor, though. Can anyone else share details and tips on roasting this blend? I'm no expert, but I've been roasting my own beans for 3 or 4 years now. Never had this happen before. Thanks for sharing your tips.

We were looking for a replacement for our favorite espresso Lavazza Pienamara. Keith at Coffee Bean Corral suggested this and hit a home run!!! This makes an excellent espresso! Roast until second crack. Keith & Catherine were great help and offered great suggestions and roasting tips. Great company to do business with!

Really good blend. We use it in an Aeropress and Espresso machine. I roast it in a SR-800, 6.5 - 7 minutes. First crack is usually around 5 minutes. Second order was for 10 LBS. Definitely our daily driver for now.

This bean makes a wonderful cup of coffee! After first crack, I roasted at a lower temperature well into second cracking. The coffee is amazing and the company delivers my orders very fast and reliably.

This is my favorite coffee so far from CBC. I roasted just into second crack in my Fresh Roast, then brewed it inverted in my AeroPress. I added a little water for an Americano and some light cream, and it is probably the best cup of coffee I have ever had. I came to CBC recently when my other sources were out of Sidamo - my all-time favorite.... well, it used to be. :)

This is the blend I buy time after time. It’s smooth and chocolatey and has a fantastic aroma that fills the house in the morning. We like it best with a dark roast.

Love the Kope Kapuna. The beans are HUGE and there's very little chaf after roasting them. The taste is chocolaty and smooth, with very low acidity. Excellent bean!
