93 POINTS: A TOP RATED KONA PEABERRY COFFEE
This 100% Kona Peaberry coffee was the best Kona peaberry and second-highest rating in a cupping of Hawaiian coffees for Coffee Review’s May 2019 tasting report. Peaberry coffees tend to have a greater density of flavor, sugars, and lipids compared to regular coffee beans. You could think of these Kona peaberry beans as being the 'only child' of a coffee cherry, enjoying all the nutrients to itself.
Peaberry coffees are rare, comprising only 3-7% of the total crop. These pea-shaped, natural formations of the coffee bean are thought to form when several pistils get knocked off the coffee flower, causing only one seed to form inside the coffee fruit rather than two.
Coffee Review Assessment, 2019:
Blind Assessment: Rich-toned, deeply sweet. Black cherry, magnolia, fresh-cut cedar, maple syrup, a hint of thyme in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with round, gentle acidity; lush, syrupy mouthfeel. Resonant finish that centers around notes of black cherry and cedar.
This Kona Peaberry coffee tied for the second-highest rating in a cupping of Hawaiian coffees for Coffee Review’s May 2019 tasting report. Produced entirely of the Typica variety of Arabica and processed by the traditional wet or “washed” method, in which skin and fruit flesh are removed from the beans or seeds before they are dried. This sample also consists entirely of peaberries, a kind of bean that results when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different (often better) cup than normal beans from the same crop, from which they may or may not be separated during grading. Big Island Coffee is an award-winning coffee roaster and coffee farm operated with hands-on passion by Kelleigh Stewart and Brandon von Damitz.

Hands down the best coffee I've ever had
I've traveled the world and I love my coffee. Can't do without it. I'm so picky about my coffee I drag bags of it around with me wherever I travel. I'm not kidding when I say this is the best coffee I've ever had. The aroma is ridiculously good and the flavor is so perfect adding cream or sweetener would be a sin.
The "Go-to" Coffee
One of the best coffees I've ever had, that I can drink on a daily basis. This Kona coffee is my everyday morning cup of greatness! Simply put these peaberries tastes brighter, juicier, and sweeter than all the rest!
Kona Peaberry review
We’re been drinking peaberry for over 12 years, this is the first 5lb batch we ordered from Big Island. We will be a returning customer it was really sad leaving our previous supplier but they stopped selling peaberry and their coffee went down hill. Thank you for your quality and taste I truly hope you keep up the incredible hard work and great tasting coffee.
I love your coffee
I love your coffee (Kona peaberry in particular) and am very happy with the price. I'm brewed a pot today!
VERY pleased with the Peaberry Medium Roast. Wish it was a light roast but beggers can't be choosers. Will definitely be ordering again - (5LB bag)
I love your coffee. Next batch I will try the darker roast as I normally use it in espresso.
Freshly roasted, tastes great!!
Flavor is exceptional.
I've loved Kona coffee ever since my first trip to Hawaii 40 years ago.
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.
