Smooth, mellow, rich and full-bodied with no bad after taste. Medium roasted with no burnt taste and the aroma is fragrant. Excellent gift for friends, family and coworkers. The beans come from the variety of the Guatemalan arabica trees or Kona typica from our pesticide free estate. The tall, big, trees provide their own shade keeping the soil stable and moist resulting in a taste that is smooth and rich. This is one of our best sellers. It is the best selling private reserve coffee that we offer at our Kailua-Kona retail outlet. The only other outlet for our private reserve coffees is from this website. We suggest you try this medium roasted coffee as your espresso beans and you will have a savory drink instead of having only a strong taste. We also recommend the use of a French press since you capture the natural oils of this coffee.
