    Triple picked? Would you mind explaining to us?

    Triple picked is just as it sounds....hand sorted 3 times.

    Haiti was the world's 3rd largest supplier of coffee in 1949 and now nobody knows it exists, Haitian coffee is my favorite and I love buying it from Singingrooster.org they are doing great stuff to help Haiti get back up there!

    Not whole lot special about Hawaiian coffee.
    it is expensive only because labor cost in Hawaii is about 50 times more than the labors in Ethiopia.
    however, they are very well and cleanly processed, I got to give it that.

    I am guessing that "hand sorted 3 times" means "picking out bad CHERRIES 3 different times" to assure the best quality/ripped cherries.

    however, in a high quality specialty coffee producing farms, the pickers are super well trained, so they do not really have to re-re-sort again.

    but when we talk about super highend coffee such as Gesha, normally, the workers hand-sort dried parchment beans later on (before they get delivered to final coffee bean processing factory)

    I recently got into Tanzanian coffees and have found some that taste like homemade soup, but Ethiopian will always be #1 in my book.
