100% KONA COFFEE, SPECIALTY GRADE
Kona Bloom comes from one of the highest Kona coffee grades available, which also happens to be among the largest Kona coffee beans.
After Kona Bloom 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. (We use the top two grades, which are also the largest Kona coffee beans available.)
✓ 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.

SHIRTS & MERCHANDISE
Got the wrong size? We offer exchanges on unused items.
Because Espresso Bites are made without stabilizers or preservatives, they may bloom or melt when shipping temperatures exceed 80 F. If this is a concern in your location please select FedEx shipping.
If you notice a white color to your bar, it's perfectly safe to eat! This happens when the cocoa butter softens and migrates to the surface. It happens more often when shipping in warm weather. Learn more about blooming.
Espresso Bites that melt or bloom when shipped via FedEx are eligible for a full refund or credit.
Espresso Bites that melt or bloom when the buyer elects Free Shipping or standard USPS are eligible for a credit.

I've become rather obsessive ...
I've become rather obsessive about my coffee selections in recent years and have always been fascinated by Hawaiian coffee. Maybe because it's grown in the US or because of the romance of Hawaii, and my memories of each visit. Each coffee selection from Big Island Coffee Roasters has exceeded expectations and warms my soul. I'm a huge fan and I would love to see how y'all create this amazing coffee. For now, I'll just enjoy each cup and think of all the hard work that goes into making my mornings so wonderful.

NOTICE THE BUBBLES...
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.
