Roast: Medium Review Date: March 2002
Origin: Not disclosed. Presumably some components are from Hawaii, probably from the island of Kauai. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Delicate but authoritative, richly and sweetly acidy. The classic fruit/floral aromatics lean toward chocolate in the aroma, fruit in the cup, and carry through cleanly into the long, sweet finish.

Notes: Sold roasted and ground in a 11.5-ounce can; 33 cents per ounce. This coffee consistently has proven itself one of the most impressive - and distinctive - roast-and-ground canned blends sold in America. To my palate, it offers a superior cup to many of the whole-bean Kona and Hawaii blends offered by specialty roasters.Call 1-888-246-2598 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who want a breakfast cup that is both seductive and classic.


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.
