Blind Assessment: Deep-toned, chocolaty and rich. Dark chocolate, strawberry guava, hazelnut butter, sandalwood, ginger blossom in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with round, engaging acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Crisply sweet, long finish with notes of dark chocolate, hazelnut and sandalwood.
Notes: Produced at Black Rock Farm, overlooking Kona’s Kealakekua Bay, entirely of the Typica variety of Arabica and processed by the wet, or washed, method. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins. The company prides itself on quality and freshness, craft-roasting coffees in small batches only after orders are placed. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A superb example of the classic Kona cup: exceptionally sweet, deeply nut-toned, and vivified by spice-toned floral and fruit notes.
