This is the lightest roast we recommend, and one that works beautifully with our Kona organics. The velvety light-brown beans provide a rich, snappy Kona flavor with exceptional aroma. Medium body. Highest in caffeine. Also called City, American, or Breakfast Roast.
We call this the Pele roast because it seems perfectly suited to her beans. It has a mellow, rich flavor that is not overwhelmed by the smoky tones from the roast. The beans are chestnut brown with a slight shimmer of oils on the surface. Ideal body. Retains most of the caffeine. Also called Full-City or Medium-Dark.
Kona lends itself beautifully to a sweet, dark roast. The flavor is hearty, smoky and strong. Beans are dark brown with oily surface. Maximum body. Much of the caffeine has been roasted out. Also called Espresso, Vienna, or Italian Roast.
