Tully’s Coffee Hawaiian Blend is paradise in a cup
Tully’s coffee hawaiian blend review
Maybe it’s the love hewn into each small batch. Or, maybe it’s the time and dedication of the bean roasters. Whatever the reason, I know a quality pod of coffee when I taste one, and I know THIS is a quality pod of coffee. The brown liquid, almost amber, doesn’t say much for the brew but when the aroma of the K-Cup captivates your senses, you know the quality of coffee of which you are about to partake.
The victim: Tully’s Coffee Hawaiian Blend medium roast K-Cup is on the brewing block today. The aroma wafting from the Keurig 2.0 machine piques my interest. It smells of richness. It reminds me of freshly ground beans. Green and fresh and rich is the most accurate way to describe it. It could fool you into thinking this was a dark roast. This brew contains 10 percent Hawaiian beans blended with high-quality Arabica beans.
Hawaiian coffee, and more specifically Kona coffee, has long garnered marks as one of the finest coffees on the planet. It makes perfect sense why Tully’s Coffee would mix it into a K-Cup.
The brew: On cue, the taste pleases. There is nothing bitter about this coffee. It’s fresh and robust and hits all the right sensors in the palate. It’s simply complex. The flavor of the Hawaiian beans wraps around the boldness of the Arabica beans in a perfect dance of sweetness and savory. Tully’s Coffee boasts about the care and detail given to every small batch of coffee they roast. After enjoying this Hawaiian blend, I believe them.
This is the kind of coffee you want to drink all the long day. With such a pleasant flavor, you’ll find yourself staring at the bottom of your cup far too quickly. Bold-seekers beware; this is a medium roast. Check out Green Mountain’s Dark Magic K-Cup to satisfy your bold cravings. Even bolder, try your hand on Barista Prima Coffeehouse’s Italian Roast Coffee pod. It bulges your eyes in admiration.
Unfortunately for Tully’s Coffee, the industry proved too volatile. In 2009, it sold off most of its assets to Keurig Green Mountain and eventually filed for bankruptcy. Global Baristas purchased the company in bankruptcy court. Today, the company struggles to keep its retail locations open thanks, in part, to the rise to power of coffee tycoon Starbucks.

Where to purchase Tully’s Coffee Hawaiian Blend: Regardless of the instability of the company, Tully’s K-Cups continue as a mainstay in the home-brewing process thanks to the acquisition by Keurig Green Mountain. You can find Tully’s Coffee pods, and specifically the Hawaiian Blend K-Cup at Amazon or at many retail locations. I purchased always a box of 72 pods from Amazon.
Because of the geographic setbacks of Hawaiian-grown coffee, and because of the valuation of Kona-like coffees, it’s very unlikely you’ll see many Hawaiian K-Cup pods widely available at reasonable prices. Besides, 100 percent Kona and Hawaiian coffee is properly brewed fresh from ground beans. Tully’s Coffee Hawaiian Blend K-Cup is the best substitute and the closest you’ll get to a Hawaiian vacation in a cup.
