What Is Kona Coffee?
Kona coffee is a coffee that is grown and processed completely in the Kona Region of the Big Island of Hawaii. More specifically it's from the Hills of Mauna Loa and Hualalai in the Kona districts on the island.
Like true champaign coming from the Champaign region of France, true Kona comes from the Kona districts of the Big Island of Hawaii.
Because of the unique volcanic soil in Hawaii, Kona coffee has a unique aroma and flavor profile, making it pretty distinct in the coffee world. They're often sweeter, with flavor notes of chocolate, brown sugar and honey, with a brighter aroma of caramel, fruit, or buttery cocoa. Together, the taste and the smells of Kona form a unique experience that transports people to Hawaii with every sip.
Being from Hawaii, true Kona beans come with a hefty price: 100% Kona beans can cost upwards of $100 for a 16oz bag.
Our Kona Blend is an economical answer to this - combining the smooth and unique tastes of 100% Kona beans with other premium Central American arabica beans to bring the same flavor without the same price tag.
