Kona Moon | 100% Kona Coffee

  • Tasting notes: Dark chocolate, hazelnut, graham cracker cookies; smooth and balanced

  • Roast:
     dark    Origin: Kona District, Big Island

    For dark coffee lovers, our dark roast 100% Kona coffee - Kona Moon - comes from the same farm as our best-selling Kona Bloom and Kona Peaberry. These smooth, balanced, and sweet Kona coffee beans are unflavored and have real tasting notes of dark chocolate, hazelnut, graham cracker, and cookies.

    Compared with our other dark Hawaiian coffees, Kona Moon is a bit more chocolatey and smooth, while Ka'u Darkwood is spicier and Hamakua Stout Heart Dark [Sold out] has a fuller mouthfeel. 

    After Kona Moon is milled, it undergoes three additional steps that elevate the quality and meets our expectations: optical sorting, grading, and storing in Grain-pro bags.

    ✓ Grading separates the Kona coffee into different sizes and removes some defects.
    ✓ Optical sorting removes discolored and damaged beans.
    ✓ Grain-pro storage protects the delicate coffee from Hawaii's humid environment.

    In addition to harvesting only ripe, red Kona coffee cherry, these three steps separate exceptional specialty-grade Kona coffee from commodity-grade Kona coffee beans.

    Varietal: typica

    the taste of the coffee is beyond compare!

    The coffee beans are always freshly roasted, days before reaching my doorstep. Also, the taste of the coffee is beyond compare! I look forward to every sip of coffee. Mahalo

    I’ve been a Big Island Coffee Roasters’ customer for years. Their coffee is the best I’ve found (and I’ve tried a lot!), their choices varied and tasty (I love chocolate and toffee) and the freshness is second to none! ...and their service is the cherry on top. Can you tell I am a loyal fan?

    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.
