  • Kona Extra Fancy

Roast: Medium Review Date: May 2004
Origin: South Kona growing district, Big Island of Hawaii Price: $14.95/8oz

Blind Assessment: Sweetly melodic, soft but substantial, with a gentle tickle of acidity. A spice-toned chocolate complicates the aroma and resurfaces in a long, easy finish. Nominating reader Monique Tam calls this "The best 100% Kona I have tasted." It certainly was the best of the four Konas I sampled for this month's cupping.

Notes: Bay View Farm is one of the Kona district's leading and most sophisticated coffee mills. Visit www.bayviewfarmcoffees.com or call 800-662-5880 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy softness without sentiment.
