SWEET & ROUND
From Kaito's Yellow Collection, Hunapu delivers full-bodied comfort with brown sugar sweetness accentuated by fruit notes of red apple and grape for a smooth and lively cup.
Developed just enough to accentuate its natural sweetness and complex flavours, this light-medium roast single origin coffee is best enjoyed black, and lends itself beautifully to filter or immersion methods.
In order to provide you the freshest coffee possible, all orders received up to and including Sunday will be roasted Monday and shipped Wednesday.

FROM THE ROASTER
Hunapu means "mountain flower" in the K’iche language (the most widespread of the indigenous languages in Guatemala) and it is also the indigenous name for Vulcan de Agua, a volcano located near the city of Antigua. The processing mill Bella Vista is located at the foot of the volcano. Bella Vista is a farm and a wet and dry mill. The Spanish term for this type of facility is "beneficio".
Hunapu consists of specially selected smallholder farmers who own small 1-4 hectare farms around Antigua between 1500 and 1800 meters that bring their cherries to the Bella Vista mill. Hunapu coffee is sorted into day lots/picking dates. After delivery to Bella Vista, the coffee is wet processed and fermented for 24 hours before it is dried on the patio. This particular lot is a Caturra variety separation.
This lot was sourced via our new partnership with Collaborative Coffee Source who work exclusively with the Bella Vista mill in Guatemala.
Coffees in Kaito’s Yellow Collection take you to new places. Expect a vibrant and dynamic taste experience. Perfect for people looking for coffees with brighter acidity and varying mouthfeel, with flavour notes more in the fruit, dessert, flower and subtle herb categories.

Kaito is a boutique coffee roastery, founded by partners in life and business, Holly & Paul von Hoyningen Huene, in their hometown of Hudson, Québec.
Adopting their name from the ‘kite’ fold that sets the foundation from which their origami bird emblem—Wazo—emerges, Kaito encourages thoughtful exploration of the incredible spectrum of possibilities that coffee presents.
With mindfulness and transparency as guiding values, Kaito continually strives to make the most delicious and sustainable coffee, and to share what they love with others who care as deeply as they do.
In the meantime, they’re simply doing their part to reveal something beautiful—one fold, and one coffee at a time.
