"I like to sip this with bongo drums playing in the background. The coffee is a little on the darker side. Acidic! Yummy!"
"I think it’s actually lighter than I expected. Definitely can taste the fruitiness of it, solid cup of coffee. I’m not sure I’d consider this a medium bodied roast but it holds up nicely. "
"Really enjoyed this blend. No funky aftertaste, just a classy cup"
"Really good cup of coffee, not as good as the Kona :) but well worth the bag!"
"Came back to Honolulu Blend one year later. This time a great cup of coffee ☕️ starting with a fabulous aroma. Smooth and bold. Light flavor nuances. All in all a fabulous way to start your day."
"Caffeine: Medium; Grind Level: 40 (Breville Smart Pro Grinder); Settings: Gold Cup w/ 28 oz. water (Breville Precision Brewer); Review: A real nutty
smell from the whole beans. It tastes like a general blend of different regions, which is what the description says it is. It definitely comes with the nuttiness and boldness, but I'm not really feeling the tropical
vibes. When I think tropical
, I think bright citrus
. With this I do get a clean finish, but nothing outstanding in comparison to "The Classics". I feel like this is as good of a medium blend as the Mocha Java was a dark blend. Drinkable, comfortable, but nothing remarkable. Medium bodied, perfectly fine black. The hype is the Hawaiian origin, and it certainly isn't Kona."
"One of my absolute favorites."
"Arrived on time. Was a larger package then I was expecting. Smells good, plus who doesn’t like complementary candy samples. Will recommend this to my friends!"
"Wonderful flavor and very smooth. No bitterness"
"The name suits. Definitely holiday flavor. Paired well with my barista almond
"If you are more incline towards fruity
flavors, this is a perfect balanced coffee that keeps the richness acid of the fruits and smoothness of the tropical
blends, best Hawaiian blend I ever tried !!!!"
"Great medium roast
with a very nice balance of bold flavor but not too dark. "
"I liked the body and the depth of this one but disappointingly that was as far as it could go for me. No nuanced flavors to make it interesting or one to come back to consistently. Nothing exciting here. "
"Don’t gennerally like being a hater but I did not like this one bit. Used my Breville machine on it with various grinds but it just comes out the same, no flavour, dark to a point of tasting burnt. Meh. Tried pour over
and same thing"
"As someone who prefers dark coffee we took a chance on this blend because it sounded good. Typically I find lighter roasts taste watered down and subdued, however that is not the case here. I was able to enjoy the fruity
flavors this coffee has to offer. While it may be a while before I re order this is on my list for when I need a go to enjoyable change. "
"This was a lovely full-bodied blend with subtle, not overpowering fruity
notes. I would definitely order it again."
"Can really taste the apple flavor! Not our favorite but good! Definitely a lighter roast"
"Smelled great out of the bag and the flavor was a nice medium bold body with fruity
notes. I like this one"
"best Hawaiin blend i've ever tried no bitterness. fruity
and smooth "
"I order direct from Hawaii at times. This coffee took me right back to morning on the Big Island and I loved the flavor. "
"I usually don't like the fruity
profiled coffees, but something about the Hawaii ones just does the trick. Will buy again!"
"A lighter roast with not much oil to the bean, it was light and fruity
"This was fantastic! Really smooth and really reminded me of being in Hawaii."
"Tasted like the Hawaiian island itself!! Smooth and tasty! Smells amazing!"
"This roast is extremely smooth, and has a hint of tart in its aftertaste. I normally go towards darker brews, but this medium-light brew has impressed me. It has a lot of flavor packed into it without being a typical bitter coffee."
"My wife and I enjoyed this as a french press
after receiving a sample pack. I enjoy a medium or light-medium roast
and this one was roasted to my liking. Nice flavor overall. "
"This coffee smelled AMAZING when our box arrived, however, I was a little disappointed by the taste. I thought that this coffee was ok, nothing really stood out to me flavor wise. "
"A nice medium roast
, definitely a all day sipping brew. If I invited people over Id feel safe serving this without alienating any coffee drinker."
"This roast has a hint of sweetness that I loved. smooth finish."
"I enjoyed this coffee, but it would not be one that I would order. It did not have the depth or richness I enjoy. "
"Dark enough, smooth enough, and a touch of apple. Pretty good."
"Brewed with french press
which brought out the fruity
flavors nicely. I was surprised with this cup of coffee and enjoyed it much more than I anticipated. "
"A very pleasant coffee with some unique flavor, but don’t expect Kona from this. It’s a solid choice but not a standout hit for me. "
"Sweet and fruity
with a complexity of flavor. We want (need) a full bag to really allow the time to dive into the depths of this coffee. With a nice weight on the tongue, this is a slow, Sunday morning sipping coffee."
"Subtle apple flavor but overall rather plain coffee."
"The nip of a crisp nearly bitter Apple was there. Interesting cup in the french press
. Was sad when bag was empty..."
"This just might be the best coffee ever. I loved it. The worst part was when it was gone. I didn't care or take the time to note the flavors, it was just a cup of incredible coffee, everything was balanced and delicious. "
"This is a very sweet, fruity
tea - a little bit too much so. It's very light. We drank as an espresso
with milk. It's better iced
"I didn’t get much of the fruity
but loved this coffee! Drip brewed this with some cream and I loved the smooth creaminess that transpired. Bold for a medium roast
, but just perfect dancing on your tongue. Would definitely buy this again!!!"
"Great medium roast
coffee. Brewed in french press
. Edium acidity with fairly smooth finish. Deep flavor that is slightly sweet. We would buy this coffee again."
"I'm a sucker for dark roast
s but when I saw fruity
I was afraid it would be over powering but instead of an attack of fruit it was a lovely little sprinkle of fruitiness."
"Really simple but flavorful coffee. Smooth, no acidity, but I really didn't get a lot of the fruit taste. Would definitely try again, it was a great cup of coffee."
"Strong, but smooth and creamy with mild fruit notes. Great morning coffee."
"Wow I was surprised by this. Wasn't sure how this blend would work. But it is delicious. Very smooth, is creamy and bold and has a nice touch of fruit. Would definitely buy again. Brewed french press
"It's definitely sweet and fruity
, but I didn't really taste apple. It held well as a French brewed coffee. It got pretty frothy while brewing, and that always makes me happy. Overall, I think it's pretty refreshing but perhaps not one that I would buy a 12 oz of. Try it iced
"Very smooth! I liked this one a lot. Medium bodied, hints of fruity
-ness, and so smooth. "
"(Review #56 -- 4.3 / 5) Potentially the smoothest coffee I've ever had. Pristine notes of Guava, Mountain Apple, a hint of sugar snap pea and a tease of cherry
- tastes like a bright, sunny island swaddled by the sparkling sky-blue ocean. Not super complex - but what it does do, it does very well. "
"I like the lightness and fruitiness of this medium roast
