Kona Coffee Artisan Blend
The Coffee: This is a 12oz bag of ground Columbian Excelsio, City Roasts and 10% Kona coffee. This bright morning brew is roasted just down the street from the Island Essence factory in Maui. In the Hawaiian language, "oma" means roast. If you have visited Maui before, you probably have had Maui Oma coffee as they make the proprietary blends for Mama's Fish House, Longhi's, Meriimans and Leoda's, as well as many others. Maui Oma does small batch roasting and uses only the highest quality coffee beans, perfectly suited to a Hawaiian Lifestyle--whether you are at Jaws, overlooking a Haleakala sunrise, or in your home or office, dreaming of Maui.
Taste Profile: A bright morning brew, medium body with raw nut flavor and hints of semi-sweet chocolate followed by a lingering strawberry fruit finish.
