Not exactly what I expected
UPDATE: I received an e-mail from the president of Hawaiian Roasters, the company that makes this coffee. Since I was not totally satisfied with the coffee, I was given a full refund. While this coffee is not my favorite, I will say the company makes a great effort to satisfy the customer. Thank you, Mr. Krant.
Not a good purchase
UPDATE: After my review, the President of Hawaii Coffee Roasters contacted me and offered a refund or a new bag. I left the choice up to him. I received a new bag and have to say that I had the 5-star experience that I had hoped for. I ended up having received a “bad bag” the first time around. While it is not my favorite varietal, it certainly gave me the coffee experience I was looking for with great richness, smoothness and flavor. I also give 5-stars to Hawaii Coffee Roasters and its’ President for OUTSTANDING service.
What a disappointment
Old Drrrrrrrrrrrry Beans
Call company and they made restitution.
What’s the taste of Kona like?
I mostly drink Starbucks espresso or Starbucks Sumatra. Since I feel that Starbucks espresso tastes better than this product, I’d rather go back on Starbucks espresso. Also my friend agrees with me about the taste of Kona coffee.
Please tell me what the taste of Kona is like!!!
Worth every cent–a special treat for yourself or a friend.
Though pure 100% Kona is rare and difficult to find, this coffee is the real deal–a premier coffee which is among the costliest and most sought-after. If you are just browsing for coffee, take a close look at the label. For some strange reason, coffee can be legally called “Kona” if it contains just ten percent Kona beans (with 90% of the beans coming from unknown sources), and some new buyers are unaware of this. This brand of 100% Kona will justify its price and confirm everything you ever wanted in taste. n Mary Whipple
Not Worth the Money…
Smooth and flavorfull
Really bad coffee
I Just Had To…
Now I’m wondering if the folks at Hawaii Roasters have any openings. I work cheap…you can pay me in these wonderful, rich coffee beans!
Nothing like real Kona
Kona Coffee; you’ve got to be joking!
WOW! I can say it backwards !WOW.
Not what I was expecting
As an avid coffee drinker, I had ordered several other highly rated coffee’s from Amazon. I have always considered a genuine Kona coffee to be my favorite so I was a little disappointed when I ground up some beans and made myself a fresh cup.
It is more bitter and less flavorful then I expected. Not a terrible taste, just not what I expected. For the price, I wouldn’t recommend this coffee. There are many other less expensive; good coffee’s out there.
Falls a bit bit short
Burnt and Stale, Not Medium Roast as Advertized
I strongly suspect that these beans are a few years old that were re-roasted, re-packaged, and sold on Amazon as fresh Kona beans.
When I opened the package, it smelled more like a chimney or an ash tray than a coffee.
I am very disappointed.
Cross my heart, there are other excellent coffees which cost less than Kona.
Worth the money
Award Winning Farm Roasted 100% Kona Coffee, Whole Bean, Medium Roast, 1 Lb
Stale, Quality not Commensurate with Price Point.
Our office purchased a Techni-Vorum Moccamaster, with a copper heating element, for ideal brewing. Bottled Culligan water was used to make the coffee. Under such conditions, the sweet flavor of Kona shines. This did not happen with this product. The consensus in the office is that the beans were stale.
One trick in the food industry to add margin is to sell products that are slightly aged, and a at least a little bit if not moderately on the way to expiration. This is the model that Trader Joe’s operates under. The difference is with Trader Joes, you pay less for the product, so there is still some relative value in the purchase.
Pure Speculation: I do wonder if this is the case with this product. Higher Margin Product not selling in recession, gets older, passed off at disproportionately high price point. I can not know. What I do know is that I will not be buying this again. Again, while my experiences with Kona with other lines have been outstanding, this particular product was stale. Suggestions on other Kona lines appreciated. I am willing to pay up for good beans. If paying at this price point, the expectations are high.
Did have better Luck with Caffe Britt, which while a darker roast, exceptional quality, and good value at the price point on Amazon. Happy brewing.
Not as described.
As stated above, this coffee is “Not As Described”
Hawaii Roasters coffee is good but
Not happy with the freshness and flavor
Love it , love it , love it
I am sooooooo disappointed.
After experimenting with more/less beans to try & brew the perfect pot, I’m about to give up.
Needless to say, I’m so disappointed I could cry.
