Origin: Hawaii Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Two panelists found this coffee pleasantly "soft" and "deep," and several noted dry chocolate or smoke tones. But the majority either yawned or complained of a slight off-taste, variously described as earthy, grassy, herby, or turpenny. Whatever you call it, it dampened an already delicate profile.

Notes: A delicate profile considered soft and deep, but with a slight earthy, grassy off-taste. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee. A special selection from the production of this very large farm. Most Kauai coffee comes from trees of the hybrid yellow catuai variety. Wet-processed by the aqua-pulp method.

Who Should Drink It:


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.
