Kona coffee with its unique rich, full bodied flavor is highly prized and is sold all over the world. It is ranked by coffee buyers as one of the top three coffees. Total annual Kona production varies from year to year depending on climatic conditions. However on average about 3,000,000 lbs of green beans, ready for roasting, are produced from about 15,000,000 lbs of cherry(roughly 18-20% by weight). Roasting further reduces the weight by another 20% (e.g., 100 lbs of green bean produces 80 lbs of roasted coffee).
Kona coffee production represents less than 1% of the worldwide production of coffees. However, because of its unique full body and mellow taste, it is one of the most sought after coffees in the world! It is a favorite in Japan, Korea, China and Taiwan as well as on the mainland, USA. We hope you enjoy our 100% Kona coffee as well. Mahalo!
