Mauna Loa, the volcano in the western district of the island, creates excellent growing conditions for coffee trees. The slopes produce coffee beans that are known for being full-bodied and well balanced in flavor. Kona 'Volcanic Estate' coffee is grown on these slopes between 800 and 2,500 feet in the rich volcanic soils. Kona produces the highest yield of any other Arabica varietal in the world at 2,000lbs per acre; this is quite impressive compared to other trees that typically average 500-800lbs per acre. With the perfect mixture of sunlight, shade, rain, and humidity, this high-grown Arabica produces exceptional coffee. Smooth in body, Kona 'Volcanic Estate' has a light acidity that is complimented by slight chocolate and fruit undertones. We medium roast the Kona coffee beans to brew into a light bodied cup that is both vibrant and flavorful.
As the United States’ only state to grow coffee trees, Hawaii proves itself worthy of the world’s coffee sector. Hawaiian Kona is a high-grown, classic coffee that is medium roasted to brew into a full body of coffee that is slightly acidic with sweet overtones.
