The Bottom Line
There's a lot of fake Kona coffee out there, but this 100% Kona roast from Koa Coffee is legit. Shade-grown in rich volcanic soil in the near-perfect climate of Hawaii's Big Island, it's a vacation in every cup.

Koa Coffee 100% Kona Overview

I was first introduced to Kona coffee beans when I visited Hawaii in 2014.

Wow.

A medium roast with a big, rich flavor, you can almost taste the Big Island Kona coast’s recent volcanic past. And less oily than most beans on this list, they’re perfect for superautomatic espresso machines.

Most Kona coffees you’ll find are blends with perhaps 10% Kona coffee. That’s not what this roast is. It’s the real 100% Kona experience. Just be ready to pay through the nose for this pure, high-quality, regional roast.

About The Coffee Maven

Bryan De Luca

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
