|Coffee Origin:||Kona growing region, “Big Island” of Hawaii.|
|Est. Price:||$27.40/7 ounces|
|Review Date:||August 2014|
Quietly deep, pungent. Dark chocolate, plum, night-blooming flowers, oak, a hint of musk in aroma and cup. Soft, gently tart acidity; impressively syrupy, vibrant mouthfeel. Flavor fades a bit in a continued rich but oaky finish.
Downtown Coffee is a small-batch roaster located in Honolulu, Hawaii, that offers a wide variety of Hawaii-grown coffees. We found this 100% Kona by far the best of the six Downtown Coffee offerings we tested in 2014. Visit www.dtcoffee.com or call 808-599-5353 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
Chocolate and rich flowers should please those who enjoy a Kona cup with gentle acidity and deep-toned, musky aromatics.
