Topic: taste like Kona? (6 msgs / 89 lines)
1) From: Peter Zulkowski
Is there a coffee that Tom has that tastes like Kona?
Or even better?
Only 110F today, here in LHC.

2) From: Les
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.

Thanks Les,
I will get some and compare against some Kona I have here.

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.
RK Drum roasting in Chesapeake, VA.

It's not a kona but I liked that austrailian mountain estate tom had 
last year.  Phenomenal coffee IMHO...

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 
So little time, so many new and different coffees...
