One of the many benefits of having Monique as a friend is that periodically she visits her family in Hawaii and brings back Kona coffee. If you’ve never had Kona coffee it’s probably the best balanced coffee out there. It’s not too sweet, not too acidic, and has a wonderful flavor. This Honolulu Coffee is probably the best Kona I’ve ever had. They roasted it perfectly to bring out all the best in the beans. Often Kona is roasted too much and you lose some of those lovely vanilla and chocolate notes that the bean produces. This one is best savored black. Check it out if you get a chance.
Of course, I can’t think about Kona coffee without thinking of this scene from So I Married an Axe Murderer.
