So I just have to ask, because I simply can't figure it out...
They seem to take deep pride in their work http://www.kona-coffee-council.com/
-I've had 4 different 100% Kona coffees, and 3 of them were extremely boring, roasted well into the carbon tasting range, with no real interest to them at all. They were "fine", I don't hate those kinds of coffees (I don't claim to puke on Starbucks type roasts), but it seemed like a complete waste of what a supposedly fine coffee was supposed to be.
-The 4th Kona, was mildly interesting. Not roasted quit as dark, but still darker than I would have thought it should be, and the taste wasn't full of carbon, but it was still relatively uninteresting.
Am I missing something? Am I trying to taste fireworks when I should be looking for mild and well behaved? I have air popper roasted beans that tasted far more (to me) interesting then these.
Cone drip brewing is being used.
