This coffee is the fuel to get your kayak to Capers Island and back. Wild and uninhabited, Capers Island Heritage Preserve, just north of Charleston, is accessible only by boat. And a kayak is the perfect, simple vessel to enjoy the journey. Go with the ebb tide, paddle past mud and oyster flats, watch in amazement as dolphins surface beside you. Beach your kayak and grab your stowed thermos of Capers Blend. Walk to the island's Boneyard Beach (named for tree skeletons) and find a seat on sun-bleached wood. Watch pelicans fly in formation overhead. Take a sip of coffee. Enjoy life.
PRE-GROUND FOR DRIP, 12 OZ.
PAIRS WELL WITH: Fresh Berries and Cream, Morning Sunlight, Orange Slices
ROASTING PROFILE: Medium-Light
ABOUT KING BEAN COFFEE ROASTERS
Owner and founder Kurt Weinberger began King Bean Coffee Roasters in his parents’ garage in South Carolina in 1994. He was 23 years old and had recently finished a stint in the navy, stationed near Seattle.
The coffee scene was exploding in the Pacific Northwest but hadn’t found its way to South Carolina. Kurt, the son of fine-dining restaurateurs, fused his newfound passion for coffee with his culinary upbringing. He purchased his first roaster, a small and humble Diedrich, and began roasting coffee. His parents’ restaurant was our first wholesale client.
