Tasting Notes

One of the world’s most prized coffees. This Special Reserve coffee is 100% pure Kona coffee, grown exclusively in the Kona District on Hawaii’s main Island. The region’s high elevation, frequent cloud cover, mild nights, and mineral-rich volcanic soil create an ideal environment for growing and nurturing this highly prized, award-winning coffee bean.

Rating: 89 Points (out of 100)
Sweet-toned and balanced. Caramelly dark chocolate, apricot-like fruit, a hint of fresh-cut cedar in aroma and cup. Crisp acidity; very lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The chocolate and apricot notes carry into a very sweet though slightly drying finish.
– Kenneth Davids, CoffeeReview.com, October 2013

About Green Mountain Coffee®

 

 

A great tasting cup of coffee can give you a whole new perspective. It's a moment to pause, reflect, and reprioritize. That moment is what inspires us to make coffee that benefits everyone it touches. From carefully sourcing and roasting the highest quality beans, to supporting small farms and protecting the environment, we focus on what's important.

That's why we at Green Mountain Coffee® believe a good cup of coffee can change your day... but a great cup of coffee can help change the world.

Notes From Origin

The coffee’s fame dates back to 1873 when Greenwell Farms’ founder, Henry Greenwell, received a “Recognition Diploma” for his superior Kona Coffee at the World’s Fair in Vienna. The same premium-quality standards continue today at Greenwell Farms. Each tree is carefully hand-picked several times to ensure only the highest quality cherries, at the peak of ripeness, are used to produce this distinctive and highly prized coffee.

“Greenwell Farms’ Kona Coffee embodies the human spirit. The coffee and people have integrity, persistence, ethics, imagination, flair, ambition and determination. You can taste all of it in every cup.” –Thomas Greenwell, President of Greenwell Farms.

            Comments about Special Reserve 100% Kona:

            If you have a coffee that you like, buy that instead. I wish that I used the money for 3 boxes of my usual coffee. Dark magic, 3 continent, donut shop, Starbucks are all as good for a third the price.

                Comments about Special Reserve 100% Kona:

                I am highly disappointed in the quality and taste of this supposed 100% Kona. After being stationed in Hawaii, I can honestly say that I know what REAL Kona tastes like and this failed to meet the grade. Additionally, I way over-paid for this major let down.

                      I was a little scared of the light roast description, but this is a nice, smooth coffee with a bold enough flavor. It felt like there was more coffee in the pod than the average KCup. Would recommend and repurchase if it was available.

                      Comments about Special Reserve 100% Kona:

                      Kona is a special coffee that has been recognized as such for many years. Recent problems with the Root-Knot Nematode have lowered yields and made Kona hard to find. A common response has been for roasters to produce Kona blends which offer 10% or more Kona along with other coffees that offer support without masking the Kona flavor significantly. But nothing compares to a 100% Kona product for those of us who love Kona. This is indeed a Special Reserve. I'm placing my second order today.
