Hawaii Coffee Factory has the Purest Kona Coffee.
Kona brand from The Ol’Man, a master roaster with over 100 hundred years of family roasting experience. The Ol’Man magically infuses more rich real Chocolate, Vanilla, fresh Strawberry, Hazelnut, Coconut and Macadamia Nut flavors into to his coffee using his old Kona family recipes. He says it’s the special fermentation prep and sweet Kona pulp left on the beans that infuses the all-natural berries, nuts and chocolate together. A Kona coffee with near perfect flavor infusion and pesticide free, what are you waiting for?
Selectively Hand-picked at the Hawaii Coffee Bean Factory.
Selectively picked 100% kona coffee; only the ripe Kona cherries are harvested and we pick them individually by hand. Rotating among the Kona trees every 12-14 days, choosing only the Kona cherries which are at the peak of ripeness. This kind of special attention to the Kona harvest is labor intensive, and thus more costly, it is the primary method to harvest Ol’Town pure Kona Coffee Beans.
Whether you need beans, flavored grounds in Kona, you have access to the very best that the Kona Beans offer when you buy Kona from Hawaii Coffee Factory.
Preparing the Best Kona Coffee
In the Coffee Factory wet method, 80% pulp is separated “usually to be dried and used as Arabica tree mulch” from the Kona coffee cherry after harvesting and the pure Kona bean is dried with only the parchment skin left on. The pure Kona pulp is not fully washed away with Island spring water. Leaving 20% pulp on requires constant turning but the results for our pure Kona fans is it has a sweeter, smoother almost velvet flavor. The beans are separated by weight as they are conveyed through water channels, the lighter beans floating to the top, while the heavier, big ripe Kona coffee beans sink to the bottom. Their are several actual steps involved and then they are ready for island sun drying.
World’s Finest Kona Coffee
The Kona must now be dried to approximately 12 percent moisture to assure premium Kona bean flavor. Our beans, with 20% pulp and still encased inside the parchment envelope (the endocarp), are Hawaii sun dried by spreading them on drying tables inside under 20% sunshade cloth that is rolled back in the warm days. Gently turned day and night to maintain even temperature. We take a lot more time and add a little more Kona Aloha to create the world finest coffee beans.
This is the coffee bean process in which any silver skin that remains on the Kona after hulling is removed in a polishing machine. While polished Kona beans are considered superior to unpolished ones, in reality there is little difference between the two.
Our Kona Flavors are Prized
Before being packaged, our Kona is even more precisely sorted by size and weight. They are also closely evaluated for color flaws or other imperfections. Kona seeds are sized by being passed through a series of different screens. Next defective beans are removed. Though this process is accomplished by sophisticated machines, in many countries, the coffee factory does it by hand. Beans of unsatisfactory size, color, or that are otherwise unacceptable, are removed. This process is done by hand, insuring that only the finest quality Kona is delivered to your Ohana.
Factory Expert Coffee Tasting
At every stage, the Kona factory repeatedly tests for quality and taste. This process is referred to as ‘cupping’ and takes place in a room next to the Kona sorting room specifically designed to facilitate the process. First, the Kona coffee taster “usually called the cupper” carefully evaluates the flavored Kona for their overall visual quality. Our flavored coffee’s are not only analyzed this way for their inherent characteristics and flaws, but also for the purpose of blending different Kona coffee beans and determining the proper roast. Our expert Kona cuppers can taste many samples of flavored Kona a day and still taste the subtle differences between them.
