Bay View Farm
Kona Extra Fancy
|Roaster Location:||Honaunau, Hawaii|
|Coffee Origin:||South Kona growing district, Big Island of Hawaii|
|Review Date:||May 2004|
Blind Assessment: Sweetly melodic, soft but substantial, with a gentle tickle of acidity. A spice-toned chocolate complicates the aroma and resurfaces in a long, easy finish. Nominating reader Monique Tam calls this "The best 100% Kona I have tasted." It certainly was the best of the four Konas I sampled for this month's cupping.
Notes: Bay View Farm is one of the Kona district's leading and most sophisticated coffee mills. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy softness without sentiment.
