At left is our first roast of this year's Kona. We couldn't help ourselves, had to take a picture to memorialize the event! The first thing you're going to notice about your Kona is the roast color and the aroma.
First thing we do is find the exact place to stop the roast to maximize the aroma and flavour. It often takes a few cuppings to find that sweet spot.

OUR KONA EXTRA FANCY FLAVOUR PROFILE
This year's Kona Extra Fancy starts with a tangerine brightness that really lights up your taste buds. As the flavour develops, you'll notice some stone fruit notes, followed by caramelized sugar. The Kona finishes with a very full toasty flavour, almost like a graham cracker. Amazing.
For between 4 to 10 days after roasting, the flavour of the Kona will continue to develop...it becomes even more smooth, with more depth. We time our roasts so that your Kona will be at or approaching it's most flavourful.
