Kona Blue Sky Coffee
Estate Reserve Kona, Dark Roast
|Roaster Location:||Holualoa, Hawaii|
|Coffee Origin:||Kona growing region, Big Island of Hawaii, Hawaii|
|Review Date:||February 2002|
Blind Assessment: Acidy but balanced; clean, sweet, direct. Nuanced with floral and dry chocolate notes. Rich finish with a hint of roasty bittersweetness.
Notes: By the Agtron numbers this is not a particularly dark roast, but in the cup it displays a hint of the bittersweet twist characteristic of darker roasts. From the Twigg-Smith farm in the Holualoa district. Visit
Who Should Drink It: A versatile coffee displaying enough acidity to brighten the cup of traditionalists but just enough bittersweetness and roasty finish to satisfy all but the most extremist of dark-roast lovers.
