Tully's Kona Blend K-Cup

Manufacturer: Tully's
Manufacturer Website
Rating: B+

Today's tasting is a review of Tully's Kona Blend K-Cup. The coffee brews up a light mahogany color with just the faintest shimmer of oiliness visible on top. The nose detects berries and a light roast note that reminds me a bit of grilled corn.

Sipping the Kona Blend reveals light roasted notes along with some bittersweet chocolate. There is a distinct grilled vegetable flavor on the center of the tongue. A faint cherry/berry note sits in the background along with a hint of sweetness and black pepper. There are some nutty notes as well with pistachios and almonds. The Tully's Kona Blend has a smooth body and finishes rather short with roasted veggies and bittersweet chocolate.

The Tully's Kona Blend has an interesting flavor profile that works pretty nicely. The flavors here seem a bit subdued for my tastes, but I do prefer my coffee to have big roasted flavor. If you like your coffee on the milder side, the Kona Blend from Tully's is well worth a taste.
