Kona Peaberry Coffee is Pleasantly Aromatic

Whenever I have a friend traveling to Hawaii I insist they bring me back a bag of the famous Kona Peaberry Coffee. Kona coffee is known for its smooth and mellow yet full-bodied flavor, a very deep, rich bean producing a very aromatic cup of coffee. Kona's elevated location is perfect for growing the best beans. Its climate of sunny mornings, cloudy or rainy afternoons combine to make a superior coffee bean.

Not every bag of coffee marked "Hawaiian" is made from the Peaberry coffee bean. To ensure that you are getting this perfect bean it must say "Kona Peaberry" coffee on the label. Only coffee grown within a small area of Kona, that is only one mile wide and 30 miles long, can be graded "prime" and labeled "Kona Peaberry Coffee."

Because Kona Peaberry coffee has a lower acid content than other beans it brews a smoother tasting cup of coffee. This rare bean is unusual due to its cylinder shape, producing one bean instead of two, and makes up only five percent of the coffee crop. Some believe that because of its differences it yields a darker and stronger but smoother bean.

The best way to experience this bean is to brew the Kona Peaberry coffee in a French Press coffee pot. Melding together the best bean with best process of brewing to yield the smoothest and at the same time, boldest cup of coffee. The Peaberry bean can be sampled, thoroughly enjoying its robust flavor. It doesn't get much better than this!

When purchasing a package of Kona Peaberry Coffee inspect the ingredient label carefully. It can only be called that if it is 100% Kona Peaberry Coffee. It may say that it is a "Kona" blend. That could mean that it is part Hawaiian coffee, possibly grown in other areas, and a small part Kona Peaberry Coffee. If you are comparing prices you may think you are getting a high grade coffee by purchasing one called "Estate." "Estate" is not a grade of Kona coffee. The Kona coffee council defines "Estate" as "the product of one farm, unmixed with crops from other farms and processed through to roast under the control of that farm." Processing companies buy coffee in cherry form (right off the tree) from many farms in Hawaii. They combine these all the way through to roasting and market it under their own label.

The only truly satisfying cup of coffee will be Kona Peaberry coffee, if you are willing to pay a little more.
