- Origin/process: Kona coffee, hand-harvested, washed process
100% KONA COFFEE | BRIGHT MEDIUM-LIGHT ROAST
For bright and sweet coffee lovers, our lighter, 100% Kona medium roast coffee - Kona Bloom - comes from the same farm as our popular Kona dark roast called Kona Moon. These sweet, floral and large Kona coffee beans are unflavored and have natural tasting notes of jasmine, peach, honey, caramel, and toffee.
Compared to others, 100% Kona Bloom is smoother and perfect for medium-light roast Kona coffee aficionados seeking naturally sweet & juicy coffees. In a slight contrast, Ka'u Wood Valley Single Estate is brighter, akin to white wine, and Maui Mellow has stronger notes of roasted nuts.
BACKGROUND: PROCESS OF REFINEMENT
Before roasting, each of our Kona coffee undergoes three additional steps that elevate the quality and meets our expectations: optical sorting, grading, and storing in Grain-pro bags.
✓ Grading separates the beans into different sizes and removes some defects. This creates a clean consistency in the cup.
✓ Optical sorting removes remaining defects, discolored and damaged beans.
✓ Grain-pro storage protects the delicate coffee from Hawaii's humid environment.
✓ Bean size We use a larger bean size for this Kona medium roast, which is both beautiful to look at and, weʻve noticed, tastes a bit fruitier and more floral in the cup.
In addition to harvesting ripe Kona coffee cherry, these three steps separate exceptional specialty-grade Kona coffee from commodity-grade Kona coffees, which can be overly acidic or bitter. Thatʻs one among many reasons to choose specialty Kona medium roast coffees, like Kona Bloom, over others.

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.

Big Island Coffee Roasters, PO BOX 400, Mountain View, HI 96771
Picked up a bag of whole beans last minute returning from Big Island. Loved every cup I made, so much so that I upgraded my coffee equipment for a burr grinder and an espresso machine to extract more flavor out of the beans.
Best coffee anywhere
We are true coffee snobs- we care about roasting dates, roasting methods, sustainably and most of all we care about consistency, smoothness and richness of flavor. While we’ve experienced coffees and tastings all over the world, we feel so lucky to have discovered Kona bloom on our last trip to Hawaii and I doubt we’ll ever drink anything else. It is worth every penny.
100% Kona is heaven on earth
This coffee makes me want to get out of bed. From the aromatic smell while grinding to the first drip, I can’t wait to savor every sip! Bold but not bitter. This is a great flavorful coffee. The other coffee makers have nothing on Big Island Coffee Roasters. With 100% Kona, they knock it out of the park. My new favorite on auto order!
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.
Very fresh Kona coffee
Great service and very fresh coffee!
Some of the best coffee if ever had.
