Kona Royal


Product Overview

Kona Royal is a new Kona varietal that boasts a medium body with floral and fruity tasting notes and a slightly effervescent apple acidity. It is a very unique cup profile. 

The Kona Royal plant itself - dubbed Purpurascens Longberry by agronomists - is related to the Bourbon varietal of coffee and comes to Kona originally from Brazil, where it was discovered in the early 1900's. It produces beautiful purple foliage (hence its name) and pinkish flowers.

This is a very rare coffee because yields are very low and beans are very small, making it very expensive for farmers to grow.  It is uncommon to find this coffee grown commercially anywhere in the world, and the Kona-grown coffee is almost never available.
