Hawaiian Kona Coffee (Hawaii) – $34/lb
Known for its comforting taste, the Hawaiian Kona Coffee is cultivated and grown on the Mauna Loa’s and Hualalai’s slopes, specifically located in the South and North Kona Districts of the island of Hawaii. Kona coffee blooms in February and March. Small white flowers known as "Kona snow" cover the tree. Green berries appear in April. By late August, red fruit, called "cherry" because of resemblance to a cherry, start to ripen for picking. Each tree, hand-picked several times between August and January, provides around 15 pounds of cherry, which result in about two pounds of roasted coffee.
