The Background

If you fancy yourself a coffee connoisseur, you're probably pretty familiar with Kona coffee, or at least aware of their reputation. Kona coffee is grown on the western coast of Hawaii within a micro-climate that offers fantastic coffee growing conditions. Kona beans are grown at high altitudes, on volcanic slopes that offer nutrient rich soils. These beans in particular come from Captain Cook, a community that sits within South Kona. Koa Coffee, (I wonder where they got their name from?) offer a variety of high quality, 100% Kona products, each of which do the lofty reputation of Hawaiian coffee proud.
