We ship whole bean, unless you request a specific grind.
Our medium roast is a brown bean with a dry surface. This roast accentuates the Kona flavor, and is full of body without ever being harsh or bitter. Many say it tastes slightly sweet, with a little kick to it. Preferred by those who like to taste the regional highlights in their coffee. Medium roast is also called “City Plus”. Typically the preferred roast of our East Coast and Midwestern customers.
Our dark roast is a rich, dark bean with a touch of sheen. The caramelized sugars in a dark roast give it a smooth flavor with a slightly sweet, aftertaste. We keep a light touch on this roast so the Kona varietal shines through. Surprisingly, this is the smoother of the two roasts. This roast goes well as an after-dinner drink or for those who like to breakfast with an excellently smooth and flavorful cup. This roast is also called “Full City.” Preferred by our West coast and Asian customers or those who enjoy Starbucks or Peets.
