A Trip to Kona

Probably one of the best contest prizes you could win is a trip to Hawaii. Well, I am not running a contest but I can get you to Kona. It’s just going to come by way of a very beautiful cup of coffee rather than an airplane.

We often talk about a coffee having the ability to take us to the place from which it came. Starbucks Reserve™ 100% Kona Coffee, is no different. When describing 100% Kona Coffee we talk about her gentle acidity, medium body, aroma of caramel and flowers, and flavors of citrus and nuts. All these attributes are very evident in the origin as well as the coffee. Hand-selected from the highest grade of Kona coffee, these Extra Fancy beans are cherished for their large size and density which contribute to the rarity of these beans.

I have had the opportunity to spend time on the big island of Hawaii and the first things that come to mind from a flavor memory perspective are the sweet papayas with a squeeze of juicy lime. The citrus and sweetness balance perfectly. I also think of Macadamia nuts. They are everywhere; in salads, cookies, bread and on fish.

Gorgeous and fragrant flowers abound in Hawaii. Magnificent botanical gardens and lonely roadside plots contain thousands of remarkable scents and floral experiences.

The gentle breeze from the ocean is constantly cleansing the air, delivering new sensory episodes, sensory episodes that create the beautiful memories and visuals that can transport one to Hawaii in a moment.

Taste Starbucks Reserve™ 100% Kona Coffee and you will be transported to this land of startling beauty and rapture. Taste the coffee, its layers of elegant flavors will deliver you to the islands in a single cup.

Mahalo!

    My BI (Big Island) name is KonaChar. Although not my physical home, it is my spiritual home and I long to return. Your post took me back if only briefly. Hawai'i is truly a paradise and the BI is what it's all about! Mahalo and Aloha to RL and fshickcox. ~~~

    I'd like to purchase Starbucks Reserve Kona, but none of the Starbucks Retail locations in my area have it. Why can't it be purchased online?

    Where can I purchase the KONA coffe?? Seems real silly to me that you advertise the coffee on your website and don't sell it there as well...
