Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: February 2002
Origin: Brocksen Gate Estate, Honaunau, Kona, Big Island, Hawaii Price: NA
A purists cup: big, authoritative, powerfully but sweetly acidy, complete. The roast rounds the dry fruit tones toward chocolate but leaves the robustly rich acidity intact.

  • Nani Kona Coffee

    Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
  • Hawaii Nani Kona Private Reserve, Medium Roast

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: February 2002
Origin: Nani Kona, Kailua-Kona, Big Island, Hawaiian Price: NA
Extraordinary high-toned aromatics grapefruit, flowers, blueberry, fresh grape all carry exhilaratingly from nose through cup, where the fruit tones soften toward chocolate. Appropriately medium-bodied, with the aromatics supported by a gentle balance of sweetness and acidity.

Acidy but balanced; clean, sweet, direct. Nuanced with floral and dry chocolate notes. Rich finish with a hint of roasty bittersweetness.

  • Coffeemaria

    Hanover Park, Illinois
  • Kona Fancy Greenwell Farms

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: February 2002
Origin: Price: NA
Low-toned, round, full but lively. The dry, acidy sensation is enveloped in fruit-toned sweetness. Perfectly displays what I think of as fruitcake finish, a dry yet opulently fruity aftertaste that leans toward chocolate.

Roast: Medium Review Date: February 2002
Origin: Price: NA
Simultaneously intensely sweet and intensely acidy, producing a heady, high-toned cup laced with rich, tartly sweet citrus tones reminiscent of Meyer lemons

    Eleele, Kauai, Hawaii
  • Kauai Estate Reserve Peaberry, Dark Roast

Roast: Dark Review Date: February 2002
Origin: Kauai, Hawaii, Hawaiian, Pacific Price: NA
Sweet, opulently chocolate-toned fruit is turned pleasantly bittersweet by the roast. Full bodied and roundly pungent.

Roast: Dark Review Date: February 2002
Origin: Price: NA
Seductively sweet, delicate, gently acidy. The tartly sweet fruit tones suggest raisins or dates. Rather light-bodied, but appropriately so given the general delicacy of the profile.

  • Greenwell Farms

    Kealakekua, Hawaii
  • Greenwell Estate Private Reserve 100% Kona

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: February 2002
Origin: Price: NA
Delicate, high-toned, brightly acidy but sweet. The acidity turns a touch bitter in the fruit-toned finish but softens as the cup cools.

Roast: Dark Review Date: February 2002
Origin: Price: NA
The opulent, flower-toned sweetness of this coffee is overlaid by an effervescent, spicy mustiness. Imagine mildewed spice covered by chocolate.

  • Waimea Coffee

    Kamuela, Hawaii
  • Organic Kona, Sakamoto Estate Aged Peaberry, Dark Roast

Roast: Dark Review Date: February 2002
Origin: Price: NA
Splendid aroma: voluptuously rich, chocolaty and perfectly balanced. In the cup deeply dimensioned with a pruny dry fruit edging toward chocolate, but marred by a slight but pervasive bitterness.

  • Lion Coffee

    Honolulu, Hawaii
  • Kona 24-Karat, Light-Medium Roast

Roast: Dark Review Date: February 2002
Origin: Price: NA
Sweet, full, round, balanced, with a hint of dry fruit, but very limited in range and nuance. A slight roastiness, rather pleasant when the cup is hot, becomes oppressively bitter as it cools.

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: February 2002
Origin: Price: NA
Sweet and full-bodied with a hint of fruit, but aggressively flat, shallow, and bitter-toned. The almost total lack of acidity leaves the cup listless and prey to a sort of negative nuance: a soapy bitterness.
