Blind Assessment: Sweetly roast-toned, floral. Gardenia, dark chocolate, raisin, gently scorched oak, cashew in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with gentle, round acidity; delicate, velvety mouthfeel. Dark chocolate and gardenia lead in the finish, supported by smoky oak.
Notes: Kona Coffee Love Co. offers roasted coffees grown at Boranian Farms. Though not certified organic, Boranian actively cultivates its crops with regenerative agriculture methods like cover-cropping, growing nitrogen-fixing trees to coppice and mulch, making and implementing Korean natural farming solutions, using permaculture energy solutions, cooking compost, etc. Visit www.konalovecoffee.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: An engaging darker-roasted Kona cup with sweet florals and dried fruit notes and a gently smoky aromatic wood throughline.
