  • Kona Fancy Greenwell Farms

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: February 2002
Origin: Kona growing region, Big Island of Hawaii, Hawaii Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Low-toned, round, full but lively. The dry, acidy sensation is enveloped in fruit-toned sweetness. Perfectly displays what I think of as fruitcake finish, a dry yet opulently fruity aftertaste that leans toward chocolate.

Notes: Greenwell Farms is one of the oldest coffee farms and mills in Kona, still owned and operated on a direct, daily basis by Tommy Greenwell, a direct descendent of the founders. Fancy is the second-highest grade of Kona coffee by bean size, after the highest, Extra Fancy. Coffeemaria is a mainland boutique micro-roaster that, via its website, sells coffee roasted to order and same-day shipped. Visit www.coffeemaria.com or call 1-630-289-4496 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of rich, fruity, molasses-laced dessert and breakfast breads


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.
