Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Balanced, chocolaty, subtly fruit-toned. Dark chocolate, tamarind, wild honey, marjoram, honeysuckle in aroma and small cup. Plush, syrupy mouthfeel; chocolaty finish with undertones of tamarind and wild honey. In cappuccino-scaled milk, tart tamarind notes stand up to the chocolate, and undercurrents of honeysuckle contribute sweet spice notes.
Notes: Produced by Lee and Karen Paterson of Hula Daddy. A combination of washed and natural-processed coffees. Hula Daddy is a boutique coffee producer with farms at the 1,400- and 2,500-foot levels of the Mount Hualalai volcano near the northern end of the Kona growing district, five minutes above the town of Kailua-Kona.

The Bottom Line: A chocolaty, fruity, floral-toned Kona espresso, deftly roasted to medium-light to bring out both depth and levity.
