100% Kona Coffee

Kona coffee stands out as a unique and premium coffee variety due to its exclusive cultivation in the Kona Coffee Belt of Hawaii. Grown on the slopes of Hualalai and Mauna Loa in the North and South Kona Districts, this coffee benefits from the rich volcanic soil, abundant sunlight, and ideal weather conditions.

The volcanic soil in the Kona Coffee Belt is newly formed, providing essential nutrients like nitrates, phosphates, iron, and manganese. This fertile ground fosters the healthy growth of coffee plants on family farms, contributing to the distinctive taste of Kona coffee beans.

The western slopes of Kona offer optimal conditions for coffee cultivation, with sunny mornings, mild nights, and afternoon rainfall. The natural shade from the daily cloud cover protects the plants from excessive heat. Additionally, the sloping terrain aids in efficient water drainage, preventing flooding and ensuring the thriving of coffee crops.

During the harvest season from August to December, farmers hand-pick the coffee beans with precision. The meticulous process continues with careful washing, fermentation, and air drying. The beans undergo milling and polishing to remove the parchment covering, preparing them for the roasting phase.

Each step in the harvesting process is executed with attention to detail, ensuring the production of high-quality coffee beans that meet the stringent standards of the State of Hawaii Department of Agriculture.

Kona coffee, exclusively cultivated in the Kona Districts, holds the market name for coffee (Coffea arabica) and is renowned as one of the most expensive coffees globally. The combination of favorable weather conditions, porous volcanic soil, and meticulous farming practices contributes to the exceptional and sought-after characteristics of Kona coffee.
