Serving Up Excellence from both................
Certified Organic 100% Kona Coffee and Traditional 100% Kona Coffee
............One Estate at a Time
Welcome to our unique online store. We offer a one-stop-shopping experience so you can enjoy and compare Kona coffees grown at several individual estates, centrally processed and roasted on the same day we ship. Our growers share our passion for nurturing their trees and for picking cherries only when they are plump, red and sweet. We buy cherry, not dried parchment or green, so we can see how the cherries were picked. If the fruit meets our standards we pulp the seeds out right away, soak them for exactly 18 hours, then rake the wet parchment out on our full-sun deck until it is 90% dry. We never mix estates, so what you get is Estate Kona Coffee straight up, fresh roasted and consistent each time you order.
We are Passionate about Perfection. Pick an estate and taste the difference.
