This Rough Cut Whole Kava Root is simply a less powdered version of our Mahakea Hawaiian Kava Root. These whole kava roots are just as we get them from the farm, freshly dried, tested for purity, and awaiting further grinding. To save you the hassle of grinding whole roots, we do run these through a hammer mill to make the root pieces small enough to be able to be ground in a standard (high quality) coffee grinder. Just like fresh coffee, there’s nothing like freshly-ground kava root when making your favorite concoction. When we grind our freshly-cut Kava root, we leave about 20% of the root as “rough cut”, which makes powdering the root the rest of the way super simple for you. Any coffee grinder will handle these small, capsule-sized pieces.
Just like the coffee connoisseur who knows the difference between a cup of coffee made from freshly-ground beans rather than pre-ground coffee beans, the kava connoisseur will know the difference between a shell of Kava made from freshly-ground rough cut Kava pieces. The Serving Size is based on the assumption that the end user (you) will be grinding these in a small coffee grinder. Making any kava drinks from the raw, rough cut Kava will result in a much weaker drink. It’s been out of stock for almost 5 years, but our Mahakea Kava is back, and we couldn’t be more proud of this classic Hawaiian cultivar of kava.
