Hi Fiery360,

CoffeeAM.com has Kona Extra Fancy Captain Cook Estate coffee for $27.95/lb or 5 pounds for $113.75.

I'm an employee, and on my first day I poured whatever was in the pot into a cup and was totally amazed. I thought, "Wow our coffee rules!"

I was then told that it was Kona and we're normally not allowed to drink it. :roll:

I agree with the last recomendation. We carried the Captain Cook for years and it is fabulous. Their prices aren't bad either.

It's legal to label a bag "Kona" if only 10% of the beans are from Kona. Be sure you're buying 100% Kona and you should be fine. From there, beans from one farm vary a bit from beans from another farm, but they're all pretty good. Some folks like graded beans but I prefer estate run beans from northern Kona farms. It's personal.

Not where I am but different countries different rules, over here it would have to be labeled as a blend, which you have to watch for when buying JBM especially.

Hi Fiery360,

Aroma Garden has Hawaiian Isles Kona Coffee for sale.

http://www.aromagardenonline.com

Like CoffeeAM, I am an employee with Aroma Garden. We are currently running a "Winter Warm-up" promotion where you can get up to 20% off our regular prices. Specials are listed on our specials page.

I was truly amazed when I first tried the "Chocolate Macadamia Nut" blend (my father in-law first introduced me to it). Anyhow, hope it helps. :grin:

Why not purchase Kona directly from the grower? You can at http://www.smithfarms.com/ , and I have heard nothing but raves about their coffee. Personally I've never tried it myself, as there are other coffees that cost less that I like more than Kona, but they have good prices, and this way you know what you are getting is actually Kona coffee, and not a Kona blend, or something else. It runs $22 a pound, shipped to your door.

Not to beat a dead horse, but just like RCS1 said, buy direct.
Here is an incomplete list of kona farms selling direct:

Every year there is a Kona cupping contest, the results are here: http://www.konacupping.com/
You can see who has won and who place int eh top 10. nice reviews.

Ive bought from 10+ different plantations and the one thing I have learned, the expensive batches did not necessarily mean they were going to taste better. Anyone willing to pay $30/lb you are just wasting your money. I have yet to find anyone that can distiguish the difference between $20/lb kona and $35/lb. kona.

Talking about CoffeeAM Kona specialty, I just added the EXACT same product to my website for 26$ a pound.

Too bad my shopping cart is still Paypal (still working on those damn PERL open source carts).
