100% Kona Coffee Beans, KOA Kona Coffee Plantation Reviewed
Ever tried Kona coffee?
I bought almost 6 months worth of Kona before realizing that something terrible had happened. I’d been taken for a ride and I don’t want it to happen to you.
KOA Kona Coffee Plantation is the original Taste of Aloha! Grown in Hawaii, in the Kona Coffee belt, 2500 feet up the side of Mauna Loa, the world’s largest active volcano. The Kona Coffee belt is a tiny strip of land, barely 1 mile wide and less than 30 miles long. The combination of rich volcanic soil and Hawaiian sunshine produces one of the best coffees in the world!
So before you buy Kona beans online, be warned: Most of the beans sold as ‘Kona’ don’t live up to their name. i.e. you’re being ripped off…taken advantage of maybe even lied to. It’s expensive, so Kona beans are frequently mixed with cheaper beans to produce affordable blends…but this isn’t obvious. In fact, sometimes its super difficult to clarify. Its like someone is serving you a fine wine….but watering it down to sell more of it. This guide will help you stay away from the crap and buy the only Kona worth buying – the real deal from the KOA Kona Coffee Plantation.
Like fine wines, Kona Coffee is processed with the utmost attention through each processing stage from handpicking to milling. The end result is an extraordinary coffee, delicate yet with a rich flavor and aroma. There is no comparison between hand picked Kona and other, mass produced coffee beans that are harvested by machine.
Just as location, altitude, sun and rainfall affect a coffee’s unique flavor profile, roasting affects the flavor of your coffee. The same bean will yield a different cup flavor based on the roast profile. Whether you prefer Medium roast, Vienna roast or Dark roast, browse our KOA Kona Coffee Plantation by roast profile.
To preserve your beans’ fresh roasted flavor as long as possible, store them in an opaque, air-tight container at room temperature. Coffee beans are decorative and beautiful, but avoid clear canisters which will allow light to compromise the taste of your coffee.
Keep your beans in a dark and cool location. Remember that a cabinet near the oven is often too warm, and so is a spot on the kitchen counter that gets strong afternoon sun.
The urethane foil coffee bags in which you purchased your coffee are generally not appropriate for long-term storage. Ideal coffee storage canisters with an airtight seal are a worthwhile investment.
The cycle of bright sunny mornings, cloud-covered rainy afternoons and mild nights create an ideal growing condition for the Kona coffees trees to mature slowly and flourish. The trees thrive in fertile volcanic soil and natural shade provided by avocado, mango and macadamia nut trees.
When you drink a cup of Kona coffee, you are drinking an exclusive coffee that comprises only 1% of all the coffee grown in the world. At prices that work out to about 25 cents per cup, don’t you deserve a truly delicious cup of coffee?
