Hawaiian Kona Pau Hana Estate
|Roaster Location:||San Diego, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Kona growing region, “Big Island” of Hawaii.|
|Est. Price:||$35.00/8 ounces|
|Review Date:||August 2014|
Sweetly and roundly pungent; deep. Dark chocolate, juicy, grape-like fruit, quietly lush flowers, fresh-cut fir in aroma and cup. Round, balanced acidity; lightly syrupy, lively mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates in a crisp, gently dry, cocoa-toned finish.
Pau Hana Estate is a boutique coffee farm at a relatively high elevation farmed by Carol Weaver since 2006. Under the name Woods Estate, it won three Kona Coffee Cupping Contest trophies, including a first place in 2001.

Who Should Drink It
Those who enjoy a quietly distinguished Kona cup: roundly balanced, not too acidy, grapey, chocolaty.
