100% Kona by Green Mountain Coffee | CoffeeReview.com
Roast: Medium Review Date: October 2013
Origin: Kona growing region, "Big Island" of Hawaii. Price: $24.99/10 ounces

Blind Assessment: Balanced, quietly rich. Buttery caramel, hints of dark chocolate, fresh-cut cedar, apricot in aroma and cup. Round but lively acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor saturates a sweet-toned, resonant finish.

It is one of Green Mountain’s Special Reserve line of specially sourced, limited edition coffees.
