  • Cook Islands Coffee

    I met up for coffee this morning with some former work colleagues.
    One of them asked me if Id heard of coffee from the Cook Islands.
    Hed had some on a visit there.

    Well I had to tell him I hadnt.

    So thanks to Google Ive confirmed what he told me and found out a little bit more.

    Heres a link which mentions that they roast their coffee over an open fire, in coconut cream.

    Typical of Islanders to include coconuts in their coffee roasting. I suppose you use what you can get your hands on - sounds like some other people I know. :

    Too bad it doesnt go into detail, sounds interesting. I wonder what it does to the taste.

      Old thread revival after a search. Just came back from Cook Islands and bought some of their coffee at the airport so I'd have beans when I got home. Its from an island called Aitu. Quite pleasant. To me its citrusy with a bit of a caramel after taste. Like Vanuatu they only sell roasted beans.

        Think you might be talking about the island of Aitutaki.
