Hawaii - a place unto itself! After morning of snorkeling the reef at Molokini, nothing clears my head better than a breakfast of fresh pineapple and a hot cup of Kona coffee. Several thousand miles from anywhere, Hawaii has recently become a major coffee player. Of all the coffees grown here, Kona coffee is my favorite.
It is grown on the the Big Island, which has more than 630 farms ranging in elevation from 500 to 3000 feet. Many of these are family farms and are less than 5 acres in size. The Kona variety is internationally known and commands some of the highest prices in the world. It is Medium in body and known for its buttery finish.
Best known varietals: Kona Typica.
