Dark + Deep: Dark Hawaiian Coffee Collection (3 Bags)

17 reviews

A collection for darker roast coffee lovers that tours Hawaii through 3 different growing regions: Kona, Ka'u, and Maui.

The coffees are roasted just enough to amplify mouthfeel and roast flavor, but not enough to cover origin characteristics that make these coffees recognizable as being excellent darker roast Hawaiian coffees. 

  • 100% Kona Coffee | Kona Moon, 7 oz. Tasting notes: Dark chocolate, hazelnut, graham cracker cookies; smooth and balanced
  • 100% Ka'u Coffee | Ka'u Darkwood, 7 oz. Tasting notes: Fudge, cherry, tobacco, blackberry & spruce
  • 100% Maui Coffee | Maui Mana, 7 oz. Tasting notes: Dark chocolate truffles and allspice; Balanced, mellow, and smooth

Recommended brewing via French press: 1g coarse ground coffee to 16g of 198-200 F water. Add enough water to completely saturate the grounds and let bloom for 30 seconds, then add the remainder of the water and steep for an additional 3:30 minutes. The total brew time should be 4 minutes. Press and enjoy.

  • How did you brew this coffee? Pour over first, French press next
Smooth and mild

My first foray into Kona and I am still figuring out the best brewing method. The first go was mild and a bit week for me, adjustments to follow. But still a lovely cup of joe.

Coffee review

So far very disappointed with Kona Moon. Not dark at all very light and tasteless. As far as dark coffee goes I am an Italian and French roast fan.

Glad We Tried Them But Not for Us

My girlfriend and I are passionate about coffee and wine. Unfortunately, while pre-purchase opportunities to taste wine are plentiful, not so much with coffee. I am glad Big Island at least offers this sample pack. We strongly prefer dark roast coffee. These three, especially the Kona Moon, were not close to what we generally drink. I suspect that lighter roasts are the specialty of most Hawaiaan coffee roasters. For devotees of dark roasts, this misses the mark.

Love Kona Coffee

I love Kona coffee! It's the smoothest coffee. We've only tried the Kona Moon so far. It was beautiful. Can't wait to try the others.

Best Dark Roast Ever

This coffee is FANTASTIC, the roast is dark without being "burnt". It's dark, it's flavorful, and it's Kona......a complete HOMERUN. Mahalo.

Fresh beans and coffee brewing


See those bubbles? When your coffee blooms with bubbles it’s a sign that it’s been recently roasted. The fresher the coffee, the more intensity you’ll get because great flavors and aromas fade over time.

☛ Our coffees are roasted-to-order each week, then packaged and shipped immediately, and arrive with the roast dates stamped on the bag.
