Blind Assessment: Sweetly and gently bright in aroma and cup. A soft, lemony citrus dominates the aroma. In the cup delicate floral-toned acidity, silky mouthfeel, continued lemony character complicated by flowers and a shadow chocolaty richness. Very sweet finish; the floral note in particular lingers.
Notes: Although the package does not display the USDA organic seal, it does indicate that the coffee is organically certified by the Hawaii Organic Farmers Association. At an elevation of roughly 2000 feet, Moonstruck Farm is producing its first significant crop after reclaiming six acres of coffee land in Honaunau that reverted to jungle.Call 808-328-0707 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: A quintessentially delicate Kona, silky and subtle.
