Blind Assessment: This Kauai peaberry cupped clean for most panelists, although three found a touch of herby or earthy hardness. The main complaint was lack of power: "mellow, well-balanced, [but] almost bland"; "flavor -- still waiting." Five of twelve panelists used the "bland" word. Nevertheless, several identified positive grace notes. "Dark chocolate overtones and very dry," said one.

Notes: This peaberry was mellow, well-balanced, with some chocolate grace notes but almost bland. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee. This Kauai Estate selection is mainly from trees of the hybrid yellow catuai variety. Wet-processed by the aquapulp method. Peaberries occur when the coffee fruit produces a single oval bean rather than two beans with matching flat sides.

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.
