Kona Coffee Council

Aloha, E' Komo Mai! (Welcome!)

The Kona Coffee Council is an organization of Hawai'i farmers who grow, process and sell the World's Best coffee! Kona Coffee is grown only in the Kona district on the west side of Hawai'i Island (the Big Island), where it has developed over 175 years. These heritage trees thrive in the unique combination of sunshine, rainfall, location, and volcanic soil - only available in Kona, to create our award-winning coffees.
Rocky volcano slopes nurture it.
Sun-drenched mornings ripen it.
Misty afternoons refresh it.
Six hundred farmers meticulously handpick it.

Please explore our site to learn all about our product and why we are proud of it.


Did you know that Hawai'i is the only state in the US to commercially grow coffee and among the islands here, only the Kona district grows this gourmet treat? Because of our rocky location and the fact that the coffee 'cherry' does not ripen all at the same time, we cannot mechanically harvest our trees. Since we must inspect each bean as we pick them, you are assured a perfect cup of coffee, which was picked when ripe, and not a combination of immature or overripe beans.

Whichever producer you buy from, look for the Kona Coffee Council's "Seal of Approval" (as shown in the upper left corner of this page) on each bag you buy, to ensure that you are getting the best: 100% Kona Coffee!
