Nani Kona Coffee
Hawaii Nani Kona Private Reserve, Medium Roast
|Roaster Location:||Kailua-Kona, Hawaii|
|Coffee Origin:||Kona growing region, Big Island of Hawaii, Hawaii|
|Review Date:||February 2002|
Extraordinary high-toned aromatics grapefruit, flowers, blueberry, fresh grape all carry exhilaratingly from nose through cup, where the fruit tones soften toward chocolate. Appropriately medium-bodied, with the aromatics supported by a gentle balance of sweetness and acidity.
Nani Kona is a new, well-funded Kona boutique growing and roasting operation whose trees (on two farms in the Holualoa district) are just now coming into maturity. The Nani Kona bags proclaim A Fresh Cup of Aloha Visit
Who Should Drink It
The most purist of professional palates might accuse this coffee of having gained aromatic complexity by absorbing some fermented sugars from the fruit before processing, but, if so, this was a blessed accident. A splendidly seductive coffee, reminiscent of many of the best Ethiopia wet-processed origins.
