This coffee is okay, not great, but not bad either. It’s smooth, not bitter, but doesn’t really have any Kona flavor. To me it just tastes like a good quality generic coffee, which for the price is okay by me.
I have since moved on to 100% Kona that I buy direct from a farmer in Hawaii. Smith Farms has some of the most affordable 100% Kona, and it’s very tasty! I suggest giving them a try. You can’t buy it on Amazon, but it’s worth doing a little Googling to find them. Shipping is cheap when you buy 2 pounds.
So if you just want some decent coffee for not a lot of money, this coffee will do. If you want to try some 100% Kona, give Smith Farms a try.
Hope this helps!
I used to purchase this coffee blend at BJ’s Wholesale when I lived outside of Boston. Hadn’t found it locally when I moved away, then discovered I could get it through Amazon. Hurray! So mild & mellow, just enough hint of Kona to make it worthwhile. Compared to supermarket coffee this is miles ahead in smoothness. Caveat: I spent a year in Hawai’i & had real, 100% Kona coffee, which this product makes no pretensions at being. But for the price, you wouldn’t have expected 100% Kona, would you? I’m just pleased as punch that I can keep my coffee jar stocked without breaking the bank or resorting to bitter-tasting supermarket coffee.
After falling in love with Kona coffee while in Hawaii we tried finding some back on the East Coast that wouldn’t break our wallets like the 100% Kona would. This is a great blend at a much more reasonable price. We taste tested it against our traditional brews at home like Dunkin & Folgers and this blend won by a mile. Full bodied, not bitter. A good deal.
This coffee is barely palatable especially if you like 100% Hawaiian coffee. It does not give the percentage of Kona it has in it, but to be a blend it only has to be 10% (I’m not positive though), this coffee in my opinion is not any better than a low end supermarket coffee.
