Kona Coffee Special

May 18, 2010

On Arizona Coffee, Chris Tingom posed the question, “Who will be the first AZ shop to charge $12 for a cup of coffee?”  In response, it was found that a few shops have already offered fairly expensive coffees.

At Echo Coffee, we hadn’t planned to do a promotion of this sort so quickly, but Ron Cortez of Cortez Coffee offered us a micro lot of an award winning Ka’u Bourbon 100% Kona coffee from Rusty Hawaiian, which we roasted on Monday.  Reading over the cupper’s comments on Coffee Review you’ll notice phrases like “mind-blowing coffee”, “quintessential Bourbon”, and “a perfect 10”. Sampling it myself last night, I had one thought: “Yum”.

Today I had my chef, Carylann Wootton, whip up something decadent to pair with this amazing coffee.

And so it is that starting Wednesday, May 19, we will offer our Kona Coffee Special for $15.  The pairing includes a 12 oz cup of Ka’u Bourbon, brewed via our pour over drippers.  Alternatively, if you would like it as a double espresso or macchiato, we will gladly prepare it that way as well.  As a special incentive, the coffee will be paired with a 6 oz chocolate mousse with raspberry, crumb, and dark chocolate.  Either the mousse or the coffee alone would be a treat worth stopping in for, but together they shouldn’t be passed up.

Supplies are very limited (we have less than 4 pounds of this coffee available), so if this is something you are interested in, be sure to come by the shop soon.

    When I saw the post in Arizona Coffee I thougt about bringing a trully special coffee not just from the price point but for the complexity of its flavour. This coffee ussually does not make it to any commercial roaster because is rare and the plantation produces very little but out of this world coffee.
