Blind Assessment: Juicy, bright, tropical. Pineapple, myrrh, coconut, freesia-like flowers, almond brittle in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with juicy, lively acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish leads with notes of pineapple and freesia, rounding to almond and coconut in the long.
Notes: Produced by Kona Farm Direct entirely from trees of the famous Kenya SL34 variety of Arabica and processed by the washed method with the addition of wine yeasts. Kraig and Leslie Lee have been growing and harvesting traditional Kona Coffee for over 25 years. In 2017 they introduced several distinguished new tree varieties to their 4.7-acre farm.

The Bottom Line: A compelling fruit- and floral-toned Kona cup, Kenya-esque in its bright acidity and complex aromatics.
