Just flew in from Kona, and jeez are my arms tired!!
Tasted coffee with the Kona Pacific Farmer's Cooperative...and ANDREW HETZEL came to play as well! Can you believe he was actually in Hawaii? He's never in Hawaii!
Mostly we tasted coffees other than Kona. The producers tasted Colombia, Ethiopia (natural), Guatemala, Sulawesi, and Brazil Cerrado. These guys were blown away! Think about it- if you thought your coffee was THE best in the world and then found out all these other flavors existed.
Just because it's right here in the US of A, doesn't mean they have regular access to other coffee origins- in fact, they have a law against it.
So it was an eye-opener. And I drank a Maitai...
