In 2010 we found a small coffee farm in a wild, disadvantaged region of Hawaii - Puna - posted on Craigslist. With little to lose we thought, “Why not?” As we integrated with the community of farmers and sampled coffees from around Hawaii, we were surprised by the local diversity that often get overshadowed. The more we learned the complicated steps to produce great coffee, the stranger it became that the final product was a gimmicky souvenir - artificially flavored, stale 10% blends. Worse still, Kona coffees were rife with counterfeit scams. We wanted to change that: to share the diverse, authentic Hawaiian coffees we tasted and the stories behind them. Milled in small batches, roasted to order, specialty grade.

    The Ka'u Morning Glory from Big Island Coffee Roasters is a perfect example of a light to medium roast done right, with a solid body and flavors of pecans, brown sugar, and a buttery feel that linger on the palate.

    One to try if you're in Honolulu is Knots Coffee Roasters Hawaii. It is located in Queen Kapiolani Hotel Waikk Beach near the Zoo. It is a great little shop with outstanding coffee. They use well-known Big Island Roasters for their coffee. They have Kona, Maui, and a signature blend that is a mix of Nicaragua, Columbia, Peru, and Kona. The blend was very good.

    I had the pleasure of trying Big Island Coffee Roaster's Kona Bloom this morning. It is a light to medium roast, made from washed heritage typica beans grown in beautiful Kona, Hawaii. I thoroughly enjoyed its smooth and silky body, with notes of milk chocolate and faint honey. While all Kona coffee is very pricey, but if you're going to treat yourself this is a roaster that you can't go wrong with.
