    Pasadena, California
  • 100% Kona Medium Roast

Roast: Medium Review Date: April 2006
Origin: Kona growing district, "Big Island" of Hawaii. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Pungent, spicy or perhaps smoky aroma, with caramel notes and a hint of apple. In the cup rather sharply acidy with very distinct caramel notes and not much else. A bright, simple, limited coffee.

Notes: Trader Joe's is an innovative discount gourmet chain currently with stores in twenty states, but no mail order. Visit www.traderjoes.com for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer it keep it simple, even if it's from Kona.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
