Kona Fancy Greenwell Farms
|Roaster Location:||Hanover Park, Illinois|
|Review Date:||February 2002|
Blind Assessment: Low-toned, round, full but lively. The dry, acidy sensation is enveloped in fruit-toned sweetness. Perfectly displays what I think of as fruitcake finish, a dry yet opulently fruity aftertaste that leans toward chocolate.
Notes: Greenwell Farms is one of the oldest coffee farms and mills in Kona, still owned and operated on a direct, daily basis by Tommy Greenwell, a direct descendent of the founders. Fancy is the second-highest grade of Kona coffee by bean size, after the highest, Extra Fancy. Coffeemaria is a mainland boutique micro-roaster that, via its website, sells coffee roasted to order and same-day shipped. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Lovers of rich, fruity, molasses-laced dessert and breakfast breads
