Coffee lovers can enjoy a royal Hawaiian treat with Starbucks Reserve Kona Parry Estate coffee. One of the “rare and exotic” coffees in Starbucks’ Reserve® line, this 100% Kona coffee is smooth and delicious. I highly recommend it.
Starbucks describes the Kona Parry Estate coffee as having lush floral and caramel aromas, with citrus and nut flavors. It is a medium-bodied coffee with medium acidity.
The beans selected for Starbucks Reserve Kona Parry Estate coffee are grown and processed on the Parry Estate in the Kona District of Hawaii’s Big Island. The region’s rich volcanic soil and its weather pattern of morning sun tempered by afternoon clouds and rain showers are perfect for yielding the best coffee beans that Hawaii has to offer.
The Parry Estate, owned and maintained by John Parry for more than 25 years, comprises some 900 acres (3.6 square kilometers) on the slopes of Mauna Loa 2,100 feet (640 meters) above sea level. The estate was formerly part of the royal lands of King Kamehameha, who established the Kingdom of Hawaii in 1810. The Parry Estate grows and processes its coffee beans with meticulous care, producing coffee beans of a consistently high quality—quality, one might say, that’s worthy of the King’s legacy.
Starbucks introduced its Reserve line of premium coffees in 2010. Starbucks Reserve coffees are single-origin coffees chosen for their rarity and unique flavors. They are available online and in Starbucks stores in select markets for a limited time.
I enjoyed my first cup of Kona Parry Estate coffee at the Downtown Disney Starbucks store in Anaheim, California. The coffee was “hand-crafted” using Starbucks’ patented Clover brewing system. The result was a rich cup of coffee in which the citrus and nut flavors were distinct, yet perfectly balanced from start to finish.
Starbucks Reserve Kona Parry Estate Coffee is available online from the Starbucks Store or Amazon.com for a limited time. Treat yourself to a taste of Hawaii with this exceptional coffee while supplies last.
Update: This limited-release coffee is no longer available through the Starbucks Store or Amazon.
