Hawaii Kona Extra Fancy

Tasting notes: Green apple, brown sugar, honey
Say aloha and ride the silky waves of this coffee grown in the rich soils of the volcanic Hawaiian paradise. Medium-roasted, with a milky and sweet flavor, our Kona Extra Fancy coffee is creamy and smooth, has exceptional aroma and delicate acidity. Nestled in South Kona on Hawaii’s Big Island, Shriner Family Lions Gate Farm is a multi-generation family business, growing coffee and tropical fruits. The legacy of the family’s coffee farming date back over a century. Get your mug, face the sunlight, and sail away with Kona’s exceptional flavor.
Here are the main reasons why our Kona coffee is such a delicacy:
Authentic, pure Kona coffee is difficult to come by outside of Hawaii, where it is grown.
Our Kona coffee comes from a Shriner Family Lions Gate Farm, who have been growing and perfecting their Kona coffee for over a century.
Because Kona coffee is produced in the United States, farming, labor, production and transport costs are much higher than in all other coffee growing regions of the world. Our farm pays ah hourly wage of $20+ to their coffee pickers.
On average, each Kona farm is only 3 acres, which is tiny! More care is put into each tree and Hawaii has some of the strictest agricultural standards in the world.
It’s labeled “Extra Fancy,” which might sound like just a marketing ploy, but this is an actual term in the Department of Agriculture used to describe the most premium variety of Kona beans available.
