I don't care for whatever the fruity citrus
taste is. I assume it's the passion fruit.
I have loved Hawaii coffee every since we visited over 10 years ago. Coconut in my coffee had become a favorite flavor (right after chocolate
The coffee was flat. It tasted like the beans had been wet then after grinding the beans they hoped it would smeill ok. It didn't. Off taste like ... it was like eating pistachio cake that had no flavor only the color was green to tell you it was my favorite nut. Very disappointed!
HI coffee is something really special, and this one does not disappoint.
It was a good coffee with classic taste of Kona Coffee. I have been using different kind of method / temperature / and grinding. However, I just think its a bit over price; there are a lot of coffee from bean box that are cheaper and taste better than it. The coffee itself taste very bold and solid. The flavor is strong and a little bitter . There is no much acidity in this coffee, so if you are the person who doesn't like fruity
flavor you probably will like this bag.
I purchased this as a birthday gift for my fiance, He loved it. I enjoyed it black. The light brown beans produce a nutty
The Bean Box is a fantastic company. I used them upon reading a review and decided to try them. So glad I did!! I bought Keala's 100% Kona coffee as a birthday gift for my daughter. The coffee came on time and the quality of the coffee is outstanding. The other thing I found to be a plus for a small business is they provided a user friendly tracking system. I will be buying from them again. Thanks guys and keep up the good work
I'm usually a huge fan of kona coffees. They're tend to be flavorful and smooth. It's one of the coffees I can drink black and still truly enjoy. This one missed the mark. It wasn't smooth and flavorful, it was harsh and the beans smelled burnt. I'm going to try adding less coffee grounds on the next cup. I was extremely disappointed $36 for 8oz is not worth it! First coffee I've gotten that hasn't measured up.
Couldn’t wait to try it - wonderful and I even tried it iced
. I would definitely order again.

My absolute favorite coffee and is worth the price you pay for it. I always make sure I have some to grind for special occasions or when the mood hits me for a smooth tasting coffee with no aftertaste or bite to it.
Gave this Kona to my husband for his birthday as a special treat.
Lovely, light and full of flavor. This coffee is a real treat ! Bright and lively.
I had only a half of the bag from my first order of the season, October and always look forward to it. That bright light aromatic flavor is always great especially in the Fall and now that I have two more orders here, will enjoy into the new year. I just keep it sealed until I'm ready to grind although it has been roasted a while. I don't care, it is still good but I will brew a little stronger and see if this crop is even better in the description.
Delicious. Super necessary. Taking me back to Hawai'i after my first trip 4 years ago. A treat well worth the cost.
A wonderful Kona, one of the best I've had. Bright and acidic, yet smooth. I love this coffee and try to treat myself every once in a while.
Delicious coffee. Such a treat. I even mix it with other coffee beans sometimes to make my own custom blend.
Smooth finish, no need for creamer or sugar. Will be ordering another bag!
Great balanced coffee. Kona will always be my favorite! treat
Perfectly smooth Hawaiian coffee; brewed in my french press
, the coconut and fruit notes were pleasant but not overpowering.
A pleasant light chocolate
aroma, this coffee rewards you with a smooth yet robust flavor. (pour over
I was happy to be able to taste the toasted coconut they mention on the label. Love it!
Good, but not the absolute best kona I've tried. I much prefer the hapuna from keala's, very good.
I can not say enough good things about this coffee. My first time trying 100% Kona and it makes me want to move to the islands! Such rich flavor!
Ok for a light coffee but not what I expected. But have loved kona so gave it a try.
Light and very citrus
y and bright. We made it in a french press
and drank it black. Not a favorite.
Too acidic and citrus
y for my taste. I brewed it in an aeropress
and drank it black.
This coffee was not bad, but I was disappointed because I expected to love it like I have loved other 100% Kona coffees I have had, and did not get the great coffee smell from the beans that I expected either.
Great cup of coffee if you like a fruitier, more acidic cup. Personally, not my cup of tea (or coffee) as I am more of a dark roast
lover, but I still enjoyed drinking this more than other beans on the brighter side.
Wow, what a delicious cup of coffee. I absolutely enjoyed it and may be the best coffee I've ever had. It was surprisingly bold, coconut came all the way through and it finished with the refreshing and sweet taste of tropical
lakoli. Brewed on a french press
with filtered water and two mesh screens
My aunt had this coffee a little while ago and this was a really good cup, but a little too acidic (not in a bad way at all) for my tastes. It was very good and I would definitely drink it again, but I typically go for a darker cup of coffee. I am definitely glad I got to try this though!
LOVE THIS COFFEE. Such an amazing smell - brewed it in an aeropress
. delicious as an americano or latte!
Hands down the best cup of coffee I’ve ever had. Brewed in a french press
. Just a hint of sweet coconut with a smooth, slightly nutty
flavor... perfect. I have to resist brewing another cup later in the day!
Amazing Kona coffee! Nice flavor of coconut throughout.
This coffee is pretty good. A little darker than I’d prefer but it is still quite tasty with some fruity
notes. I prefer using a french press
with this particular coffee.
I've had 100% Kona from a number of sources. When my regular supplier went out of business, I was in search of another supplier, and ran across Bean Box. I bought a half pound and tried it when I got it, I tried it immediately.. I was delighted to discover that it lived up to my expectations!
This was my first experience with 100% Kona. Initial cup was a wonderful toasted coconut and lychee. After the first couple cups it drank like a dark roast
where notes were difficult to discern. I'd like to try on a lighter roast. Was one of the more difficult beans to dial in for me.
A wonderful roast from a great roaster. Very smooth and subtle. A great coffee for the evening hours.
I had a Kona from an estate that might be different from Keala's many years ago through HSN and seemed a deeper roast and am not experienced with this coffee. I use a french press
and heaped my scoops and still was not that strong but tomorrow morning will use more to see if it makes a difference.
Amazing Coffee! Typically I go for the Ethiopian coffees, but this coffee is a more robust and earthy flavor. The flavor is more nutty
an full bodied rather than fruity
Incredibly smooth and delicious, very much a winner and worth the price. Must try
and delicious! Definitely worth the money! Smooth flavor!
flavor. Has less body then the Kona's I have tried before. Would love to have again!
I usually don't buy super expensive coffee like this, but man was this worth the price. I tasted tropical
fruit with toasted coconut, medium body and clean finish.
Defineintly don't think Hawaii with this cup but I do think of the ocean and relaxation. Great french press
if you have the time
This is the first Hawaiian coffee that I've tried & must say it's my favorite coffee so far. Definitely what I've been looking for in my coffee, smooth, sweet & balanced.
Excellent coffee, a unique flavor, low acidity deep and rich but not too strong or dark. If u never tried it you certainly should but it is over priced
and you can definitely find other single origin coffees that will suit your tastes better.
I was disappointed but maybe my fault. I loved Kona coffee and drank it while on the Big Island ibefore I became a coffee snob. I now much prefer Ethiopians, Brazilian and Central Americans. Nice cup but for me not worth the extra cost of the beans.
I love Kona coffee, but this isn't my favorite. It didn't have much body and was a little too floral
for my taste. I prepared it in a french press
I would say Kona is one of the most balanced coffees. The flavor is never overwhelming, almost no acidic after taste and the aroma is distinct. Wonderful on it's own or with a stroopwafel or baked good.
A really nice coffee, though I prefer African and Central American beans more. This feels darker and fuller, for a richer cup.
