The Best Coffee in the World

While on a trip to the Big Island two years ago, a friend and I visited a small coffee shop called Island Lava Java.

At the time, I wasn't much of a coffee drinker, but I ordered one just the same. My friend tasted hers first, looked at me, and said, "This is the best coffee in the world." I tried mine. I wasn't the connoisseur she was, but I knew it was fantastic. We sampled other Kona coffee brands on the Big Island, but none of them matched Island Lava Java. Upon returning home, I began drinking more coffee, but nothing even came close. In the two years since, I've bought from them via mail order more than once, both for myself and for friends.

Long-time friends Paul and Karen Gustafson were recently headed to the Big Island for the first time. "You have to try Island Lava Java," I said. "It's the best coffee in the world." They just returned, and this was in a note from Paul:

"Island Lava Java" - Yes. The best coffee in the world.
So now it's settled.

If you're on the Big Island, Island Lava Java is in Kailua-Kona, at the south end of downtown on Alii Drive. If you're not, they're on the Internet at Island Lava Java.


The best coffee in the world is Javaberry. It's the only coffee which taste is not too bitter or bitter. Its taste agrees with aroma's promises, it's very important because I hate when the aroma is rich and appetizing, but the taste is insipid.
