Roast: NA Review Date: November 1999
Origin: From the Coffees of Hawaii farm in central Molokai, Hawaii. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: This intriguing, low-toned coffee is neither balanced nor coherent, but definitely engaging. The rather hard first impression instantly softens and sweetens, revealing odd, richly herbal notes. The herbal notes persist in the aftertaste, haloed by sweetness.

Notes: This intriguing, low-toned coffee is neither balanced nor coherent, but definitely engaging. The rather hard first impression instantly softens and sweetens, revealing odd, richly herbal notes. The Coffees of Hawaii farm on the charmingly laid-back island of Molokai is a converted pineapple plantation that produces two interesting coffees, the wet-processed premium Malulani ("Heavenly Aroma") Estate and the dry-processed Muleskinner.

Who Should Drink It: People who love Hawaii but hate Waikiki. The curious low-toned funkiness of this coffee brings a little ramshackle country charm to the winter table along with the palm-tree memories.
