The Hawaiian Kona Extra Fancy is real high-grown (1400-2100 feet), 100% Extra Fancy Ka'u coffee beans from the Ka'u district, adjacent to the Kona district. These beans rival even the best Kona, with slight coconut and caramel flavors along with hints of citrus and nuts.
Kona (and Kau) beans are graded (on size, moisture, shape and defect rate) before being sold, and the top grades (in descending order) are Extra Fancy, Fancy, Number 1 and Prime. What's the reason for the grading system? Grouping identical beans allows us to achieve a consistent roast across the entire pound, so that there aren't outliers that are either over-roasted or under-roasted because they're smaller or larger than the rest.
Price is for 1 lb (16 oz/454 grams) of whole bean coffee. Ground coffee goes stale quickly so we don’t bother offering it. Our coffee is carefully roasted and bagged to order. Please allow time for custom roasting.
