Kona Bloom | 100% Kona Coffee
• Origin: 100% Kona coffee, hand-harvested
100% KONA COFFEE
For bright and sweet coffee lovers, our medium roast 100% Kona coffee - Kona Bloom - comes from the same farm as our best-selling Kona Moon and Kona Peaberry. These sweet, floral and balanced Kona coffee beans are unflavored and have tasting notes of jasmine, peach, honey, caramel, and toffee.
Compared with our other medium Hawaiian coffees, Kona Bloom is a bit more smooth, floral, and delicate, while Ka'u Wood Valley is brighter, akin to white wine, and Maui Mellow has stronger notes of roasted nuts.
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.
✓ 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.

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.

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!
Extremely pleased. The coffee was delivered on time and it’s fantastic
The real thing (coca-cola of coffee)
It’s the real thing. I have bought so called “Kona” coffee before online and been disappointed. But this is the real thing. I love it. It’s expensive, but it’s delicious. Best coffee
K Bloom review
Just as described- tasty
Really good Kona coffee
Liked it so much I’ve more of their coffee and told a friend on Maui about them.
My favorite Kona coffee from BIR!
A cup of Kona Bloom has you feeling like you are sitting under a canopy of jasmine and plumeria flowers. A cool tropical mountain breeze kisses your face as you relish the smooth, yet complex cup of coffee (black - only black). There is no astringency at the finish of each sip like I experience with other Kona coffees. Thank you for bringing such diversity to us!
Fantastic Coffee; Fantastic Service
I’ve been a fan of Kona coffee since my first visit to the Big Island. The Kona Bloom definitely takes it to a new level of smooth, flavorful, and comfort (it smells great when brewing). The ordering process was a breeze; delivery was fast (it’s a long way to Pennsylvania).
Fantastic Kona For All
This is a very nice Kona, definitely one of the better Konas I have tried. Theres a nice acidity at the end but it isn't astringent at all, the tasting notes mention peach but I get more apricot. This is a really well roasted coffee, it isn't smoky and over-roasted but there enough roastiness to it to really maximize the nice mellow sweetness that is characteristic of Kona coffee. And I honestly think this is priced very fairly, especially considering the way most retailers price their Kona or Kona blends. All in all a fantastic single origin and a great coffee for anyone to enjoy; accessible to someone who is just dipping their toes in the specialty coffee world yet at the same time nuanced for the obsessive coffee drinker.
So good I could drink it everyday.
