Is there a coffee that Tom has that tastes like Kona? Or even better? Thanks, PeterZ Only 110F today, here in LHC.
Peter, Not really, but Panama comes very close! Both of the El Salvador coffees that Tom now has are close enough to Kona for my tastes. Personally, I think Kona is over rated. There are so many good centrals now I don't buy Kona. Les On 5/13/06, Peter Zulkowski wrote: <Snip> ribes) go tohttp://sweetmarias.com/maillistinfo.html#personalsettings<Snip>
Thanks Les, I will get some and compare against some Kona I have here. PeterZ Les wrote: <Snip>
Peter, I realize that soil conditions and climate make a difference, so nothing will ever be a Kona-clone tastewise, but I think Kona plants were originally from Guatemala. If this is true, then if you can find a low grown Guat, you might come close. I tend to like Centrals better than Island coffees, so IMHO a good Guat would be better than a Kona anyway - and as Les suggests, a good Panama even better yet.

It's not a kona but I liked that austrailian mountain estate tom had last year. Phenomenal coffee IMHO... aaron
Shoot. I thought for sure that would draw miKe out of hiding... I'll admit I haven't been tempted by the lure of the Kona in a while either. There has been so much other interesting coffee to try lately! I already have some Panama, so now I obviously to go and order some El Salvador... -Chuck So little time, so many new and different coffees... Les wrote: <Snip>
