|Roaster Location:||Holualoa, Hawaii|
|Coffee Origin:||South Kona growing district, Big Island of Hawaii|
|Review Date:||October 2005|
Blind Assessment: A simple, rich, deeply dimensioned dark-roasted cup. Sweetly roasty in the aroma with semi-sweet chocolate notes. In the cup the roast continued to dominate with mildly charred wood tones overlaying semi-sweet chocolate and perhaps some dry berry notes. Rich, clean finish with continued dry chocolate notes.
Notes: Peaberries result when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different (often better) cup than normal beans from the same crop, from which they may or may not be separated during grading. Hula Daddy is a boutique coffee farm and mill located near the southern end of the Kona growing district. VVisit www.huladaddy.com or call 888-553-2339 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: The delicate Kona profile is largely overpowered by the roast here, but the result is an excellent dark-roasted coffee with a deep, slightly burned caramel and semi-sweet chocolate running consistently through the profile from aroma to finish.
