While on vacation in Honolulu, HI, I decided to stop by Kona Coffee Purveyors at the International Market Place. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am not very big on coffee, but over the past year, I have acquired a taste for different blends and types of coffee thanks to the amazing blogging of #esspressotrips and #sweetsations. I contacted Lady Dalton and requested to be a guest blogger due to my trip and wanted to share my experience.
Let me begin by saying, that upon walking into Kona Coffee the selections were too many to choose from, so I chose the basic Croissant and for my drink I decided to try something new. I purchased the Kona Nitro, a carbonated cold coffee brew. I was skeptical at first and nervous about the first sip. OMG, it was so smooth going down even before I decided to add a little cream. I am not a fan of black coffee but THIS I would drink BLACK and be HAPPY (and pumped from the caffeine).
Now, I do not want to forget about the croissant, it was so soft, fluffy, light and buttery. Better than any other croissant I have ever had!! I had the pleasure of joining a friend for this trip to Kona and she introduced me to what is called the Black Sesame Kouign Amannn. The Kouign Amann was sweet and perfectly textured. My pallet was pleased and I began to dance while enjoying just a small portion of the perfectly flavored pastry. Trying new things, is not me, but this trip to Kona was worth every part of my new tasting adventure. The pastries were made by b. Patisserie, a company that has partnered with Kona Coffee Purveyors. Good job in developing this partnership!
If you visit Hawaii, please be sure to stop by Kona Coffee Purveyors! I promise that you will not be disappointed regardless of what you order!!
