Green Mountain Coffee
Kona Mountain Estate
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Kona growing district, "Big Island" of Hawaii.|
|Review Date:||April 2006|
Simple, rather subdued aroma: cherry and chocolate notes. In the cup rich, pungent and sweet, but aromatically simple: dried cherries, a hint of chocolate, perhaps suggestions of merlot-like red wine.
Green Mountain calls their Kona a "haiku in a cup." Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles, including one of America's largest selections of single-origin coffees.
