The very best tasters are fooled all the time; the pirates in wine tastings
are great for this.  I think those situations are great opportunities to
demonstrate the importance of taste, quality, and overall enjoyment over
less important attributes like origin.  Maybe this is an opportunity to find
out what it is about Konas your friend likes, to help him understand what it
is that's really important in his coffee experience.
