However, I only ask those in Hawaii who farm and roast these beans to forgive me for saying that I think Konas are a bit overrated in the world of coffee.
Yes, these beans have a lot of flavor. The body is unrivalled. Everything is balanced in a way that is unique to the Kona bean, but there are no subtle undertones prevalent that make me like the Sumatran and Ethiopian beans so much better. The beans are aesthetically perfect in every way, and I only have to use about 2/3 the portion of what I would use to make my favorite brews, but this is where it gets touchy for me. I pay about $12-13 a lb for coffee that might not be better than Kona coffee, but I like it better. Hawaii Growers makes a mighty fine coffee, one of the best Konas I've ever tasted, but it isn't worth more than $25 a lb. No coffee is worth that to me, and I've tasted the world's finest.
Hawaii Growers is very competitively priced compared to other Konas, so if Kona coffee is the drinker's coffee of choice, then Hawaii Growers is a great choice. For someone who prefers coffee from other regions, Kona still stacks up well, but a purchase for me was to simply try something new rather than to look for a new regular.
Two days later:
4 STAR RATING: I also contacted Hawaiian Roasters and they immediately got back to me. They found out that Amazon had not thrown away a batch of coffee back in September and I had received a bag of it. While I have received a refund from Amazon, Hawaiian Roasters is also sending me a replacement bag of coffee. Excellent customer service. I received the new bag and it was very good.
ONE STAR RATING: I first ordered this coffee during the 2010 Holiday Season and liked it so much that I gave several pounds as gifts. In fact, we liked it so much that we decided to do the automatic order every other month. I would have chosen every month, but at almost $30.00 per pound, I just couldn't quite justify it. My February order just arrived and I anxiously opened it up. Where is the rich coffee smell that should be permeating the kitchen? It just isn't there. It actually has that old, rancid smell. You know the one; like oil that has gone bad. Upon close inspection of the package, I found out why it has this smell. The dark roasted date on the bottom of the package? June 15, 2010!! This coffee was roasted 8 months ago!
Needless to say, I immediately contacted Amazon, demanded a refund and canceled any future orders. This is really too bad because when this coffee is fresh, it is delicious. What a shame that they believe they can foist old product off on supposedly unsuspecting customers. They should know that people who pay this much for coffee probably know old coffee when they smell it. Get a clue, Amazon.
