|Roaster Location:||Ramsey, Minnesota|
|Coffee Origin:||Ka'u growing district, southwestern corner of the "Big Island" of Hawaii.|
|Review Date:||December 2009|
A rich, balanced lighter-roasted cup. Complex aroma: tart, cherryish coffee fruit, milk chocolate, honey, a hint of flowers. In the cup wine-like acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The coffee fruit notes are complicated by a slightly savory, spice-like nuance. Simplifies slightly in a cleanly rich finish.
Ka'u is a new Hawaii coffee district with a growing reputation for quality and distinction centered 30 miles or so south of the famous Kona region. Paradise Roasters prides itself on roasting and shipping coffee only after orders are placed, and has become a leading seller of competition-winning and other small-lot, elite coffees. Its metaphoric mission is to bring some paradisiacal warmth from the coffee-growing south to the cool environs of Minnesota. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
