    Help Please: I am Seeking the Best Kona Peaberry

    Hi,

    Iím addicted to Kona peaberry and am asking members of the forum for recommendations on where the best place to buy Kona peaberry whole beans (medium roast) online is. By best, I mean the most flavorful, robust quality coffee. Price is a factor, but if I can find the very best, Iím prepared to pay the price.

    Thanks in advance!

    well.... you certainly have an expensive taste :+)
    since only 4% of all Kona beans are peaberry, it is kind of tough to get them in state.
    and also it is expensive, about $60 to $80 per pound.
    you might want to contact Mountain Thunder Kona farm and buy from them directly.

    Thanks for the recommendation, BIC.

    Have you bought coffee from Mountain Thunder?

    of course, not. ha ha ha
    cheap guy like me will never pay for the Kona Peaberry premium!
    by the way, I work as a specialty green coffee bean sales person for Guatemala Cup of Excellence farms, so .....
    there you have it.

    I would recommend this roaster/supplier. I purchased green coffee beans awhile back and roasted myself. The quality of the green beans was exceptional.
    Great aroma and color. As stated above, true Kona is pricey.

    that is pretty good pricing for a genuine KONA Peaberry. at $22 10oz.
    I kind wonder it is REAL 100% Kona Peaberry or not.... because regular KONA coffee is around $26 to $36 for 12oz....
    I thought that Peaberry being only 4% of entire Kona, it might be more expensive then regular Kona coffee....

    i have bought Kona peaberry from LymanKona Coffee farms . Theyre an estate and sell organic 100% kona coffee. The guy post a bunch of youtube videos about his farm place. i like peaberry myself, ive had their sampler packs and the peaberry. Ive tried some other places in Big island too, but Im ok with Lyman . My opinion is im not all wild about 100% Kona coffee in general. But if i want some i get Lyman. . The best peaberry i ever had was Caribou coffee peaberry whole beans . made in a double filter french press and ground myself. . But it was a once a year thing. and i dont live by there anymore.
