Blind Assessment:

Richly sweet-savory, cocoa-toned. Apricot, cocoa nib, maple syrup, jasmine, hint of marjoram in aroma and cup. Sweetly savory in structure with pert acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. Rich, resonant finish that leads with apricot and jasmine in the short, rounding to crisp cocoa nib in the long.

Notes:

Certified organic. Produced entirely from trees of the admired Bourbon variety of Arabica. A washed-process coffee (fruit is removed before drying). Hala Tree Coffee is a family-owned organic Kona coffee farm located near Captain Cook village, in the heart of the Kona coffee belt, overlooking historic Kealakekua Bay. The 100% Kona Coffee produced on this USDA organic-certified property is processed and roasted on site to ensure quality. For more information, visit www.halatreecoffee.com.

The Bottom Line: An inviting cup from the classic Bourbon variety as grown in Kona, complex and sweet-savory.
