Hawaiian Holiday Blend
|Roaster Location:||Portland, Oregon|
|Coffee Origin:||Five origins including Ka'u growing district, southwestern corner of the "Big Island" of Hawaii.|
|Review Date:||December 2008|
Crisp, sweet-toned, balanced. Pungent nut, orangy fruit, hint of flowers in the aroma, joined in the cup by a cocoaish chocolate note. The cocoa carries with particular distinctness into a sweet, clean finish.
This blend contains approximately 15 percent Hawaiian coffee beans from the Ka'u growing region on the Big Island of Hawaii, a newer growing region south of Kona. It attempts to persuasively extend a sensory profile based on the balanced, sweet, medium-roasted profile associated with Kona and Ka'u coffees. To my palate it succeeds.
