Blind Assessment:

Balanced, crisply sweet. Cocoa, peach, oak, almond, grapefruit zest in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned, brisk structure with a savory edge; soft, plush mouthfeel. Peach, nut and oak carry into a sweet-toned though roundly drying finish.

Notes:

Kauai Coffee, Hawaii’s largest coffee producer, operates a popular visitor center and tasting room on its farm on the south coast of the Hawaiian island of Kauai.  This coffee is a special, small-lot offering consisting entirely of the classic Hawaiian Typica variety, which is hand-picked, processed by the traditional ferment-and-wash method, and sun-dried.

The Bottom Line: Quiet, round, crisply balanced, with sweet stone fruit and cocoa supported by savory-leaning nut and oak.
