  • Kona Mountain Coffee, Medium Roast

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

Blind Assessment: Simultaneously intensely sweet and intensely acidy, producing a heady, high-toned cup laced with rich, tartly sweet citrus tones reminiscent of Meyer lemons

Notes: Kona Mountain Coffee is a boutique roaster-retailer that sells only coffee produced on its own Kona Mountain farm. The farms coffee has made the final round of the Gevalia Kona Coffee Cupping Contest six out of the last nine years. Manager Mike Biondi roasts the coffee on a small Diedrich roasting machine in the corner of a small café on Highway 11, in the heart of the central Kona growing region.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of authentically tart but sweet lemon or lime pastries; those who crave the exhilarating contradiction of brisk but sweet classic American breakfast coffees.
