|Review Date:||December 2008|
Blind Assessment: Gracefully sweet in the aroma, with soft fruit and floral notes. In the cup, sweet-toned acidity, medium body and delicate flavors of blossoming flowers, honey and summer fruit. Very clean finishing with a lingering sweetness.
Notes: Hula Daddy is a boutique coffee farm at the 1,400 foot level of the Mount Hualalai near the northern end of the Kona growing district, five minutes above the town of Kona. This is a special selection from the upper part of the farm at about the 1,600 foot elevation, with fruit removal by the traditional washed method.

Who Should Drink It : Those seeking the classic subtlety on which the Kona reputation was built.
