Hawaii – Kona
Harvest – September thru November
Kona coffee can be very special and very expensive. Although grown at altitudes of only 800 to 2,500 feet on Mount Hualalai and Mauna Loa, Kona coffee asserts itself as well as any coffea arabica grown at the expected higher altitudes. Clusters of small farms hand-pick and wet-process all Kona coffee on the Big Island. At its best, Kona represents a very classic cup – mild, clean and balanced through the finish. It rewards with that ideal of what coffee can be.
