Java made from roasted kona coffee beans has very little acidity, and is considered a real gourmet delicacy, because of its smooth taste and full-bodied aroma.

History and Life of Hawaiian Coffee
Scientific name of Kona coffee is Coffeea Arabica. First Kona plant was brought from Brazil to Hawaii by Reverend Samuel Ruggles in 1828.
Kona coffee was first established as a brand name by an English merchant name Henry Greenwell in the 19th century who was first to establish several large coffee plantations in the area.
The coffee plant blossoms in March and these flowers yield berries until May.
These berries become ripe in August and are harvested from then on till January.
Today there are over 900 Kona farms in Hawaii producing over two million pounds of coffee every year.
Every year there is Kona cultural festival to celebrate the rich history of this coffee on the Hawaiian Islands.
Many of the farms also organize daily tours to give visitors and tourists a glimpse of all steps involved in making a cup of Kona, from picking the berry, milling, roasting, and finally brewing.
Peaberry Kona is ‘Champagne of Coffees’
Organic Kona cherries may contain one of two types of beans.
95% of cherries contain two beans where each bean is oval on one side and flat on the other side.
5% of cherries contain one, big, round bean which is almost as large as the two smaller beans fused together.
Such large, whole beans are known as peaberry and because it is so rare, it is the most expensive variety.
Due to their larger size, round shape and higher density, peaberry Kona coffee beans hold more flavors and create better roasts as compared to flat beans.
Coffee lovers agree that peaberry Kona Coffee is the smoothest and most flavorful coffee and hence it is known as the champagne of coffees.
Different Kona Roasts For Different Folks
Kona coffee roasters usually produce light, medium and dark roasts.
It is packaged both as whole beans and as coffee grounds to suit individual preferences.
Roasting is done in custom-designed roasters for creating an optimal balance of smooth bouquet and rich taste.
Green unroasted Kona beans are heated in rotating drums until they start to expand because of heat and begin to crackle.
Then roasting is immediately stopped and it results in a light roast.
Light roasts retain most of the original flavor from the coffee beans and they give you a unique taste of the region in which the plant was grown.
This roast is best for people who are experiencing Kona for the first time or like to experience the original natural taste of the berries.
Medium or Vienna Roast
In Medium roast, the beans are roasted till the first pop and then the roasting continues until they crackle a second time.
Medium roasts are also known as Full, Vienna or Italian Espresso Roasts.
These beans have a shine to them because of oils within the bean that have risen to its surface.
This roast has a stronger roasted flavor and could be a little bit spicier compared to light roasts.
Dark or French Roast
When beans are roasted at a high temperature till they begin to smoke, it produces a Dark roast.
Due to the heavy roasting, most of the original taste within the beans is lost and they now have a smoky taste.
Coffee made from dark roasts will have the roasting itself as its dominant flavor.
