Product Details Return to Top 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.
