Good day happy sippers!
|Waialua Estate Select Reserve|
The first thing I noticed was the sweet, toasty, & nutty aroma. I found it to be very enticing - a 'take a deep breath' kind of moment. I then noticed the color of the beans. My eyes detected a medium roast, with very slight oil in the appearance.

My initial tastes of this coffee, was a nice bright cup! Not overwhelmingly bright, but the acidity play was alive, very vibrant. This coffee had a nice balance of cherry flavors, rustic toasted nuts, and a subtle back end of chocolate, with the citrus remaining on the tongue. This coffee had a nice clean finish, almost as if it's requesting sip after sip, to remain in the moment.
As this coffee cooled, it became sweeter. I also noticed more fruity play. I picked up some date nuances, as well as some light cinnamon. This coffee truly tells the story of an Island coffee, provided you have the time to slow down and listen. I took this coffee one step further and put just a little sugar in to see how it would change. All I can say is wow! I then got some extra notes of sugar cane, which I know a lot about sugar cane, having growing up on a farm, and harvesting it. I did some research and found that, this coffee was grown on lands that was used to grow sugar cane years ago. I thought that was a great find in my coffee cup. I wont speculate whether the coffee picked up those notes from the grounds or the way it was processed. I will say this, it's not everyday you find a coffee, even after adding sugar with sugar cane notes.
Overall, this was an excellent coffee. I would recommend having it in the evening time. I only say this because, you want to be able to enjoy the coffee. This is a limited coffee, I highly recommend it. For $15.73 a 12oz bag of great tasting Hawaiian coffee, You cant go wrong!
