Roast: NA Review Date: September 1998
Origin: Hawaii Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: Complete and classic. Dry and acidy, but the acidity is held inside a deep, resonant matrix and complicated by richly wine-tinged fruit tones. Sweetens exquisitely in the finish. The medium body is smooth and buttery.

Notes: A complete and classic Kona. Dry and acidy, but the acidity is held inside a deep, resonant matrix complicated by richly wine-tinged fruit tones. Sweetens exquisitely in the finish. This Extra-Fancy (highest Hawaii grade based on bean size) from Bay View Farms mill is one of the best Konas of the 1997-98 harvest. Tactfully roasted by Armeno.

Who Should Drink It: Purist aficionados who doubt Konas can measure up to the best Central Americas. A superb drip coffee in the American mode. Those attracted to Konas for their silky delicacy may be disappointed by the dry authority of this coffee, however.

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.
