Growing fine coffee requires the coexistence of several unique conditions. This exotic plant flourishes on rich, porous volcanic soil in a mild tropical climate. A daily cycle of bright filtered sunlight with daily summer rains creates an environment ideal for coffee. Luckily, these conditions converge on a small strip of fertile land embracing the western volcanic slope of the Big Island of Hawaii. This region, 800 to 2000 feet in elevation, one to two miles wide and about 25 miles long is called the Kona coffee belt. In fact, only beans grown in North and South Kona can bear the name of this region. Coffee grown elsewhere, even in Hawaii, cannot be called Kona Coffee.
But location is not the only factor distinguishing Kona Coffee from other coffees and commercial blends. The extraordinary care taken in picking, processing, aging and roasting the beans insures the coffee offers the world-renowned Kona character, a full, rich flavor with balanced acidity, great aroma and long finish lacking bitterness.
