Kona coffee beans are grown and harvested in a small district in Hawaii, Kona. They are world-renowned for their superior quality and distinctive taste. The rich volcanic soil in which they are grown is said to contribute to its flavor.

Buying Kona Coffee Beans

When you buy Kona coffee beans, be sure that they really come from Kona. A few years ago, some companies mislabeled their products and sold other coffees with a Kona label on them. While this scandal is mostly over, you should still be choosy about where you buy your coffee. You don't want to pay a high price for premium coffee and get an inferior, horrible tasting bean instead.

Those who appreciate a truly fine cup of coffee will want to sample Kona coffee beans. You don't have to travel all the way to Hawaii to taste it, however. You can find Kona coffee at gourmet coffee purveyors, coffee shops, and even on the Web. Of course, there is nothing like sitting in a tropical paradise and enjoying a cup of the world's finest coffee!

It is interesting to note that Hawaii is the only place in the U.S. where coffee is grown. Coffee cannot withstand frost, so it must be grown in the tropics. The combination of nutrient-rich soil, warm temperatures, rain, sun and clouds found in Kona, is the perfect mix of conditions to grow arabica coffee. The next time you sample different flavors, try a cup of Kona coffee.
