  • Kona Coffee Blend Light Roast

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: January 2007
Origin: The Kona growing region of the Big Island of Hawaii and other undisclosed origins. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Subdued, sweet-toned aroma: cedar, hints of chocolate and prune-toned fruit. Round, simple, and rather richly bittersweet in the cup, with some hints of flowers, chocolate and prune. Deep, resonant short finish thins toward astringency in the long.

Notes: Purchased pre-ground in a sealed 12-ounce foil-laminated bag with one-way valve at a Safeway supermarket in northern California; 84 cents per dry ounce. Most likely this Kona blend contains the legal minimum of 10% actual coffee from Kona, which means it takes its character primarily from other (probably Central American) origins. Millstone is the specialty coffee brand of Procter & Gamble. Visit www.millstone.com for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Coffee centrists: Nothing much stands out for the better or worse in this simple, agreeable, slightly roasty blend.


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.
