SMOOTH & BALANCED | DARK ROAST KONA COFFEE
For dark coffee lovers, our dark roast 100% Kona coffee - Kona Moon - comes from the same farm as our medium-light roast of Kona coffee, Kona Bloom 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 roast Hawaiian coffees, Kona Moon is a bit more chocolatey and smooth, while Ka'u Darkwood is spicier.
BACKGROUND: PROCESS OF REFINEMENTAfter 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. 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.
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 coffees, like Kona Moon, over others.

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.

The gold standard
On a scale of 1 to 10, this is a 17. This coffee is the gold standard of all coffees I've ever had. I've dined in some pricey and exclusive restaurants where the servers will tell you with pride about where their coffees come from. Unfortunately when I finally get a cup, it's mediocre and tolerable at best. I hate to come off as such a snob but I've shelled out a lot of money in some ritzy places and it's just never at the level of Kona Moon. I like some of Big Island's other blends as well but Kona Moon is the one I always come back to. There's a dedicated Hawaiian coffee store in town that proudly tells you about their Kona too and all I can think is "are you kidding me" when I tried it. I literally stay home for a good cup of coffee now. I've also heard people ask "Is Kona worth it" I refuse to answer that question; if they have to ask then they'll never understand. Of course it is. Save money elsewhere, not on coffee.
What's the secret?
Love this stuff! I have had different Kona Coffees over the years but none of them have tasted like the coffer from Big Island Roasters. what is your secret sauce? This stuff is truly wonderful. I actually am excited to wake up so I can my first cup!
Best coffee ever
Big Island Coffee Roasters has some the richest and best tasting coffees I have ever tried, and I'm picky when it comes to my coffee. Also how quickly my orders are delivered is awesome! Love these guys!!
The Real Deal!
This coffee is amazing! I’ve been looking for good Kona coffee since I left Hawaii 5 years ago and this is it! Just like what I had while on vacation because it’s really Kona coffee from Hawaii! It’s an expense I consciously choose and feel good about because in addition to the taste (which would be worth the price alone) I know that I’m supporting an American family business that uses beans grown by American coffee growers.
In my considered opinion, the Kona Moon is the most fabulous coffee I have ever tasted.
This is AWESOME!
Excellent aromas, deep chocolates and excellent overtones of hazelnut.
