Why Honolulu Coffee’s Kona Coffee Farm is Unique

Why Honolulu Coffee’s Kona Coffee Farm is Unique

     Kona coffee has become synonymous with Hawaii and with good reason: Hawaii is the only region in the United States capable of producing the Arabica beans that are used to make Kona coffee. Our Kona coffee farm provides afternoon cloud cover, nutrient-rich volcanic soil and tropical rains which makes this location an ideal place for our Kona coffee farm to produce and cultivate our highly sought after premium 100% Kona Coffee.

     While the Kona region plays a key role in harvesting Arabica beans, it is important to know that not all Kona coffee farms operate the same, or produce the same quality of beans on their properties.

Kona Coffee Farm Report #5

Here's the latest Kona Coffee farm report from our Licensed Q Grader and resident farmer extraordinaire, Paul Massard:

"We are still engaged in heavy harvesting on the farm, and from what I have seen, we are one of the last farms still harvesting due to our higher elevation.

We are taking random samples of the picking quality to come up with a benchmark we will use next year. We are also taking random samples from the pickers' bags and gauging the amount of green coffee they have picked using a graduated cylinder. We aim to have pickers filling the majority of their bags with perfectly ripe cherries.

Blended coffees are coffee bean mixtures that are made up of different roasts, styles, or tastes of coffee. Blends are one way roasters are able to provide so many different flavor profiles and roasts, even though the blend may be made up of only Arabica beans. There are many different types of Arabica coffee beans in the world, each with their own unique characteristics and flavor. 

The blended coffees at Honolulu Coffee all start with premium Kona coffee beans, which are of the Arabica variety.
