Organic Kona – Green
|Roaster Location:||Kona, Hawaii|
|Review Date:||April 1998|
Blind Assessment: This medium-bodied, fruit-toned coffee attracted strong support from several panelists, who apparently admired its solid acidity, balanced, low-key intensity and fruity nuances. Two panelists detected a faint hardness or bagginess in the aftertaste, although both assigned the coffee respectable scores anyhow.
Notes: A medium-bodied, fruit-toned coffee with solid acidity, balance and low-key intensity. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee. Like all Konas, produced from trees of the Guatemala strain of typica. Guyer Farms is located above the town of Honaunau. Its coffee is certified organically grown by the Organic Farms Association of Hawaii, and wet-milled at the farm.
