Description

Kona is one of the top specialty coffees in the world. It is also made right here in the United States on Kona “the big island” of Hawaii. A perfect mix of sun, humidity and afternoon shade, make Kona beans exceptional.

Despite the limited space to grow Kona, only about 3000 acres produce this coffee, Kona produces the highest yield of any Arabica in the world at about 2000lbs per acre. Compare that to the Latin America average of 500-800lbs per acre and it is astounding that in such limited space they can maintain such high quality and high quantity coffee. A lot of that has to do with the reason we all love Hawaii, the weather.

Blessed with the local phenomenon of “free shade”, the trees have a rest from the sun everyday about 2pm when the afternoon clouds roll in. With the perfect mixture of sun and rain, and with no risk of frost, these trees excel in this climate.

Originally brought in from Brazil in the 1800’s, the cuttings were introduced to Hawaii by Reverend Samuel Ruggles during his missionary work there. The initial planting of theses trees was extremely labor intensive, being on the slope of the volcano, but well worth the work since almost all of the trees planted above 300 feet are disease resistant. All Kona Volcanic coffee is grown at 800-2500 feet, but the very porous volcanic soil seems to produce the same amazing results as if coffee grown at much higher altitudes.

The Hawaiian coffee industry has the tightest regulations and the highest labor costs in the world. All of the coffee grown on these tiny cluster farms is entirely handpicked, and wet processed by about 600 independent coffee farmers. It has been under strict regulation since in 1990 a mill owner was convicted of fraud for trying to pass off lesser grade beans in Kona bags. You can rest assured that after the scandal that shook the little coffee-growing town, the mill workers and authorities now work closely together to maintain the identity of the true Kona coffee.

Combining Hawaii’s gifts to the world, coffee and a beautiful romantic get-a-way, you can easily find true Kona coffee by arranging a tour through a coffee mill on the island that produces authentic Kona. If you can’t manage to get to Hawaii from late August to early December to actually see the coffee being wet-processed, you can always count on Gourmet CoffeeXpress to get it to you freshly roasted. You simply won’t be disappointed.

Kona is one of the worlds most sought after coffees-and with good reason. This is among the finest and most prized of all Hawaiian crops. This coffee is dark roasted and is an extremely well balanced brew, clear in flavor and smooth in body.

Silky smooth flavored coffee, premium quality and fresh roasted for the best flavor anywhere! Fresh roasted the day it ships. Gourmet Coffee Xpress ships right to your door, so you can awaken to a flavorful morning.
