What's the best way to store coffee... BEFORE you buy it? That is a very important question for buyers of gourmet coffee. Essential for buyers of 100% Kona coffee. Find out the answer in this blog, Coffee Aroma and Coffee Bags/


Where Is Kona Coffee?

by Bill D. on 5/30/2014 6:25:52 AM

In Kona, Hawaii, yes, but where exactly? Before I answer that, let me take you for an entirely pleasant journey of the Kona Coffee District circa 1866. That was the year Samuel Clemens ... sorry, I mean Mark Twain... took a voyage from San Francisco to the islands of Hawaii Nei, and sent back dispatches to the newspaper he worked for, the Sacramento, California Union.


Rain and Aloha

by Bill D. on 5/30/2014 6:22:13 AM

We had this couple who came in last week. And I asked, how is your trip to Hawaii going. They said, oh, it's okay, you know. So I asked them, what does that mean, okay? And they said, oh, it's been raining most of the time we've been here and it's ... and I said, terrible, huh?... and they said, yeah, pretty terrible. Of course I'd been seeing it raining, and so I understood where they were coming from. So I said I wished it hadn't been that way for them, because Kona is usually beautiful. Sunny, warm. Beautiful. And I asked them if they were thinking they might come back again some day, and they said they had been thinking about that.


Caffeine, Roasts, Arabica, Robusta

Caffeine and coffee. There are so many misconceptions. The one I run into the most often is about the roast of a coffee. In the previous bog I talked about taste versus strength, so you know that it is the amount of coffee used to brew it which is the real determining factor for the strength of a cup of coffee, rather than how it's roasted.

Drop Me a Line

You know, it's fairly easy to feel all 'aloha' and 'how are you today!' and cheery at the beginning of a fresh work week. But maybe not as easy on Friday. You're tired, and life is... well, how life is. And here in front of you is another person from the mainland who has absolutely no idea what Kona Coffee is, and they're uncomfortable being in a strange place for the first time, and they need a little TLC, a little warm aloha to make their day brighten up. And you're simply... tired.


How Much Coffee

by Mark S. on 5/30/2014 6:12:21 AM

Sometimes people come up and say, I want your strongest coffee. Actually, I have to chuckle a little bit. Because there is a very wide misconception about what makes coffee 'strong'. People sometimes request that I make them an especially dark roast to give their coffee a really 'strong' taste. Or they'll say, your dark roast is too strong, or even, your medium roast is too strong. Can't you give me a lighter roast? And then they might ask what roast we're 'really' using, because it tastes so much 'stronger' ... or 'lighter'... than when they make it at home.
