Best Coffee Beans




October 4, 2019

This is by FAR our family’s favorite coffee. While we’re no experts, we have tried beans roasted from all over the states and the world and Rooster Alarm is our favorite. We now have it shipped regularly from Kauai and that’s saying something! Preparation: We use a Chemex for brewing and a burr grinder. Taste: The beans are extremely low in acidity and bitterness - it is very drinkable, while still being flavorful. If you’ve had issues w/French press, etc. style brewing techniques being too bitter, this may be a great bean to try. It’s lovely. I can’t say enough!

All we will drink now!

We live in Chicago and have this specific blend shipped in from the island since it’s so delicious! Best coffee ever! Full flavor, not bitter.

My go-to coffee for 3+ years

This has been my go-to blend since we visited the farm in 2014. We sampled a few varieties on prem there in Kauai and for some reason fell in love with rooster alarm. we've been buying it by the 5lb bag since then. The coffee is strong enough where you get an incredible aroma. The taste can be throttled up with some extra beans, or throttled down accordingly. The acidity is mild enough to be enjoyed time and time again, cup after cup. Can be enjoyed on its own or with a hearty breakfast. Overall, 6 out of 5 coffee cups (if I could) rating.

Something not quite right

I always felt a bit jittery on this and I didn't particularly like the taste.

Just the right kick in the morning

Gave it 4 stars only because it is not my favorite. It is a full flavored coffee with just the right amount of kick. It is smooth enough to to drink black with no after taste as is usual with Kauai Coffee. Drank with cream and/or sugar it becomes so smooth the just the little bit of stength is evident. I feel it is a little bit stronger then Big Braddah. It is a great coffee. Last time we bought the 5 pound bag.

Great coffee grown in the USA

This was a Christmas present for me from my husband. Thank you sweet heart. You know what gets me up and moving in the morning. Love the smell and the taste.

Great coffee! We love it! Totally worth ordering on line and waiting for it to arrive. We never go out for coffee anymore now that we have Rooster Alarm at home!

This is a gorgeous coffee with a fantastic complexity of flavour. It is the perfect answer to those coffee snobs who claim that dark roasts are beneath them.

A cup of Kauai ...

Wife and I originally sampled this coffee at the estate in Kauai (at least I think we did). I'm pretty sure we brought back a pound when we had to go back to the states.

I think this will be my 20th or 25th pound of coffee that I order (in 5lb bags) that my wife and I seem to have grown to love (you think?)

We're by no means coffee connoisseurs, but this has been one of the most depressing beans we've ever tried. Depressing because every time we go out to breakfast and have coffee, we're depressed that the restaurant's coffee tastes nowhere near as good as this roast.

Friends and family agree, this is some of the best coffee they've had.

While we haven't sampled all of the roasts, I can say that Kauai Coffee is extremely consistent in their roasting of this particular style.

Ok, enough review, I need to order more before we run out.
