KonaRed: A Unique Pleasure
KonaRed is a company I have had my eye on for quite some time. I was pleased to find out their products were being sold in my local grocery store. Being the consummate coffee reviewer I am, I couldn’t invest in the product without trying it first. I resisted the urge to contact them right away. I don’t know what it is but there’s something intimidating about contacting a company that's sold in the grocery store. I finally got over my fears and sent them a message. To my surprise they replied and it was copacetic from then on.
I had the pleasure of trying out all three varieties of KonaRed’s cold brew: Hawaiian Vanilla, Espresso, and Original. Due to my passion for strong coffee, I gravitated to the Espresso variety and was instantly impressed. There was something about this coffee that I couldn’t put my finger on and I liked it. Like many times before, I found myself down to my last bottle, which sits in my fridge as we speak. I don’t want to take it out because I know what will happen. I will drink it in the blink of an eye and it will be gone, leaving me with only fond memories of this coffee.
With the word kona in the name, I was hoping that KonaRed would carry some of the stuff. I could hardly contain my joy when I found out that they did. I would be honored if they would be willing to participate in my kona profiling project on here. If their cold brew is any indication, I know that their kona coffee will be the highest level of quality.
As I close out each of these reviews, I’m filled with a feeling of dread. I have enjoyed talking to this company and their products are top notch. I don’t want it to end when I click the post button. If that's how it has to be, I will accept this fate. I will have fond memories of the strong and fruity blends they produced as well as yet another product that makes me enjoy flavored coffee.
