Royal Kona coffee is a brand name of premium gourmet coffee, and it is also used as a generic term referring to coffee made in the Kona region of Hawaii. Kona is the only place in the U.S. where coffee is grown. Coffee is not native to Hawaii; it was brought there from seeds carried on a British warship.

Royal Kona coffee is grown in the rich volcanic soil of the Kona region, on the big island of Hawaii. The tropical climate and nutrient-rich soil make it an excellent place to grow. The beans are high quality, and the coffee is said to have a unique, rich flavor and aroma, one of the best in the world. It got its name because it became the favorite coffee of Hawaiian royalty .

The mild breezes, cloud cover, gentle rain and shade provide an ideal climate for growing gourmet coffee. It is also grown at a lower altitude than in other countries, but does well because of Kona's unique microclimate. When you purchase Kona coffee, be sure to buy a reputable brand that really imports it from Kona. In the past, some companies have lied on their labels, saying their coffee was from Kona when it was not.
