Kona Coffee & Pooki's Mahi's Kona Coffee Single Serve Pods

Today, Kona coffee enjoys a reputation as one of the world's best coffees. Known for its flavor, aroma and rich, dark color, Kona coffee is every bit as delicious as it is unique, and people who drink it get to savor a little slice of Hawaii every single morning.

Regardless of whether coffee drinkers favor ground coffee or individually wrapped cups, there's no question that Kona coffee makes the experience of having a cup of joe significantly more special.

The Origin of Kona Coffee

Kona coffee is grown on the Big Island of Hawaii. Kona coffee comes in different grades. All Kona coffee is inspected by the Hawaiian Department of Agriculture and certified for its origin, sourcing, harvesting, and roasting processes. Coffee is only labeled "100% Kona coffee" if it is not mixed with beans from any other region.

Pure Kona coffee is grown in the "Kona District" of Mauna Loa, Hawaii. This district is located at 2,500 feet in elevation on the world's largest active volcano. This region has been producing coffee for more than 180 years.

What Is Considered the Best Kona Coffee?

While the question of which Kona coffee is "the best" is subjective, many people name Peaberry as the best varietal.

In addition to the fact that this type of Kona coffee is the most expensive, it also receives the highest rank on the Kona coffee scale, and many customers prefer its rich taste to other varieties.

In addition to Peaberry, however, there are also the following varieties of Kona coffee:

  • Kona Extra Fancy: A common Kona coffee bean that offers a pleasant flavor and widespread drinkability.
  • Kona Fancy: A blend made of small Kona coffee beans whose flavor is appreciated by many.
  • Kona No. 1: A blend of coffee crafted by mixing Kona coffee of higher grades with Kona No. 1 beans.
  • Kona Select: One of the most affordable varieties of Kona coffee, typically used in coffee blends with 10% Kona coffee.
  • Kona Prime: The most affordable variety of Kona coffee. This variety features the lowest rank and is sold as an ultra-affordable 100% Kona coffee.

Beyond these types of Kona coffee, there are several Hawaiian coffee varietals available to consumers who want them. These include the following:

  • Arabica: Arabica is a coffee varietal native to Ethiopia, although it is currently cultivated on the Big Island of Hawaii, as well. It grows in this climate and not the other islands of Hawaii thanks to the unique weather: the area is cool, nutrient-rich and verdant, and enjoys about 60 inches of rain each year.
  • Mokka: Mokka, also known as Maui Mokka, also originated in Ethiopia and was brought to Hawaii by Yemenese traders through a port called Mokka. This variety has a light chocolate and fruit flavor.
  • Robusta: Robusta is a varietal native to Africa and known for its low acidity. Robusta is currently grown primarily in Vietnam, which is the world's largest exporter of this varietal. While robusta is cheaper to produce and easier to care for than Arabica or Mokka, some people prefer these other varietals more.

Why Is Kona Coffee Peaberry So Expensive?

The reason Kona Peaberry coffee is so expensive is that peaberries themselves are rare. Peaberries are the natural product of a mutation the coffee bean undergoes inside of its cherry.

Instead of dividing into two beans per fruit, the coffee beans that become peaberries morph into only one fruit. This mutation is extremely rare and occurs in only 5 percent of all the coffee grown in the world.

And if the rarity of the mutation weren't enough to spike the price, peaberries can only be detected after the beans have been picked and processed, so they must be hand-sorted to be collected and sold, which increases the price further.

In addition to offering a richer taste, Kona coffee made from peaberries is also slightly sweeter and more complex in flavor. While it is significantly more expensive than other types of Kona coffee, the flavor, aroma and color are worth the added cost for many consumers.

How to Store Kona Coffee

There are many ways to store Kona coffee. The following are some of the most popular.

  • In the freezer. Many people store coffee in the freezer. If you're going to do this, be sure that the coffee is kept in a valve-sealed package so it does not absorb moisture or smells from other food. This method works for beans and Kona coffee single serves, as well.
  • At room temperature. Kona coffee can be stored in a valve-sealed bag at room temperature. This method helps preserve the coffee's smell and taste and works for beans and single serve, as long as the coffee is kept in a cool, dry, dark place.

When stored properly, Kona coffee has an "expiration date" of between 3-5 months, although time, light, and moisture will all degrade the aroma and flavor of the coffee.
