Hawaii: Kona Coffee

Aloha! In addition to hula, hibiscus, sun, beach and surfing, the islands are also known for its exclusive coffee thanks to fertile volcanic soils. Kona Coffee is world famous
  • In 1828, Arabic beans were imported from Brazil to Hawaii by Samuel Ruggles.
  • The coffee growing area on Hawaii is Kona on the Big Island.
  • Here the coffee rarity grows on the steep slopes of Mount Hualalai and the Mauna Loa volcano at a height of approx. 250 – 850 m.
  • There are also other cultivation areas, such as Puna, Hamakua, Hilo and Kau, which mostly belong to families.
  • Also on other islands of Hawaii coffee is cultivated: Kauai, Molokai and on Oahu
  • In Hawaii, the world’s best coffee growing conditions prevail.


  • Kona coffee is also referred to as the “champagne of coffee” or “the brown gold of Hawaii” and is the 5th most expensive coffee in the world.
  • This can be celebrated accordingly – and every spring with the Kau Coffee Festival.
  • The coffee is hand-picked and sun-dried.
  • The cultivation is, however, predominantly ecologically oriented – as by the shade cultivation.
  • “Extra Fancy” or “number one” means the highest quality level of Hawaiian coffees.
  • The coffee has a full, almost nutty flavour, powerful body and a fine aroma with a light cinnamon note.
  • It contains lots of caffeine.
  • Caution when buying: Kona coffee is often sold as a 10% blend. No idea how you hold that, but I do not dilute my champagne with sparkling wine 😉
