When purchasing Kona coffee, it’s worth it to splurge on 100 percent Kona coffee. Many of the ‘Kona blends’ consist of only 10 percent Kona coffee beans, so you’re not getting the full experience. While easier on the pocket book, locals will enthusiastically tell you to go for the real deal and get the 100 percent Kona coffee beans. It’s worth the few extra dollars.
This world-famous “coffee belt” is only a mile wide and about 30 miles long. It consists of more than 4,000 acres and is considered small in comparison to the rest of the world’s coffee farms. Known for its well-balanced flavor, each Kona coffee farm has subtle characteristics that make it unique in quality. Only Coffee harvested exclusively from this “coffee belt” is considered Kona coffee. In addition, there are some coffee farms able to produce their very own 100% Kona Coffee estate coffees.
Coffee grown in Hawaiʻi is relatively expensive compared to other coffees, because a farm worker in Hawaiʻi is paid significantly more than a worker in South America or Africa, emphasizing the importance of buying fair trade coffee whenever possible.
Kona’s proud coffee heritage and hard-working coffee farmers strive to preserve and perpetuate the cultural importance of coffee to the Island of Hawaiʻi. The only downfall of experiencing a ‘Cup of Aloha’ is you may never be satisfied with a regular cup o’ joe again.
