What is Koma Kulshan?

Koma Kulshan, also known as Mount Baker, is a 10,781-foot, glacier-covered, active volcano located in northern Washington State. Possibly no older than 80,000 to 90,000 years old, it is the youngest volcano in the Mount Baker volcanic field. After Mount St. Helen's, Mount Baker has the second-most thermally active crater in the Cascade Range. 

Mount Baker - Koma Kulshan

Koma Kulshan means "great white watcher."  Labeled "Le Gran Montana de Carmelo" by Spanish mariners in 1790, it may have been known by many different names before Americans in 1792 officially called it Mount Baker, 

Author Theodore Winthrop, who traveled from Victoria, British Columbia, to visit the Lummi people in 1853, recorded the name Kulshan. He called it a massive yet irregular, mound-shaped peak, worthy to stand as an emblem of perpetual peace between America and Great Britain. Later interpretations described the word Kulshan as a Lummi word meaning that the peak's summit has been damaged or blown off by an explosion. The name Kulshan may have been given to the mountain in ancient days to signify its bleeding wound upon its snow-covered sides.  

A popular climbing destination in the Cascades, the "Great White Watcher" is flocked to yearly by climbers eager to tame it.

Koma Kulshan Coffee

Named for the Northernmost peak in Washington, Fidalgo Coffee Roasters' Koma Kulshan coffee is Strictly High Grown (SHG). That means the beans are only grown at or over 1,200 meters (4,000) feet above sea level. The high altitude produces a more nutrient-dense bean with a much sought-after, vibrant flavor.

Low in acidity, Koma Kulshan coffee provides a smooth cup that's mild enough to be enjoyed in the afternoon. It's the perfect coffee to have with or as dessert.

Tasting Notes

With aromas reminiscent of mushrooms, herbs, and lemon, Koma Kulshan coffee has a delightfully rich chocolate flavor. The aftertaste is a pleasant lingering of cocoa powder with chocolate notes that compliments chocolate desserts and cakes or can stand very well alone at any time of day.

Coffee with Chocolate and Lemon Notes

Structured with notes of chocolate and malt, Koma Kulshan coffee is a fair trade organic shade-grown coffee.
