"I was disappointed but maybe my fault. I loved Kona coffee and drank it while on the Big Island ibefore I became a coffee snob. I now much prefer Ethiopians, Brazilian and Central Americans. Nice cup but for me not worth the extra cost of the beans. " (3 out of 5)
"I love Kona coffee, but this isn't my favorite. It didn't have much body and was a little too floral for my taste. I prepared it in a French press." (3 out of 5)
"I would say Kona is one of the most balanced coffees. The flavor is never overwhelming, almost no acidic after taste and the aroma is distinct. Wonderful on it's own or with a stroopwafel or baked good. " (5 out of 5)
"A really nice coffee, though I prefer African and Central American beans more. This feels darker and fuller, for a richer cup." (4 out of 5)

"Best roast I've had yet. Great flavor profile, lighter yet has a strong flavor where the fruit notes aren't overpowered. Good anytime of day. Only regret is that I didn't buy more bags before it sold out. " (5 out of 5)
"I fell in love with Kona coffee a long time ago, but truly great cups of Kona in the US are few and far between. Either you get a blend with hardly any Kona in it, or the beans are long past their prime. Not this one, it's exceptional. Lush, smooth and rich. Full of flavor and perfectly balanced." (5 out of 5)
"The little bit of aloha thrown in the shipping box was a nice touch Beanbox. Nose in the bag you know it's a Kona. Potent sweet aromas filled my house. A bright balanced cup of Kona. Smooth roasted malt & Chocolate. Could use a little more body. I've had Kona on site so I'm a little picky." (5 out of 5)
"Wow, a true taste of the islands in my morning cup. This roast has a sweet delicate flavor with hints of coconut an passion fruit. This is one of my new favorites sipping a cup of this luscious roast on a cold Seattle morning made me feel I was awakening on a beach in Maui." (5 out of 5)
"I'm sitting here in gray Seattle, chewing on a delightful bean from Kona, and it's like a ray of sunshine. Typically, Hawaiian coffees taste extra special because they're consumed on location. But this super smooth roast brings the delight of its sun-filled origin along with it!" (5 out of 5)
