Pure Kona Coffee is the Tropics Best Coffee
The coffee plant was carried to the Kona district in 1828 by Samuel Reverend Ruggles from the best Brazilian cuttings then English merchant Henry Nicholas moved to the area and established Kona as one of the best recognized brands later in the 19th century. The former store and Historic Farm have since become museums.
In best parts of the islands, it was grown on large plantations, but the 1899 world market crash caused plantation owners to lease the best land to their workers. Most were from Japan, brought to work on sugarcane plantations. They worked the best lease parcels of between 5 and 12 acres (49,000 m2) as family concerns, producing the best crops.
The traditions of the pure Kona family farms continued throughout Hawaii. The Japanese-origin families have been joined by Filipinos, mainland Americans, and Europeans. There are approximately 800 farms, with the size of less than 5 acres (20,000 m2). In 1997 the total area was 2,290 acres (9 km2) and pure Kona production just over two million pounds.
Growing and processing the Pure Kona
They bloom in February and March, small white flowers known as "Kona Snow" cover the tree. Green berries appear in April. By late August, red fruit, called "cherry" because of resemblance to the fruit, start to ripen for picking. Each tree is best hand-picked several times between August and January, provides around 15-20 pounds of cherry, which result in about two-three pounds of the best coffee when roasted.
Pure Kona coffee is run through a pulper within 24 hours of picking, the cherries. They are separated from the pulp to different degrees and then placed overnight in a fermentation tanks again the pure Kona coffee is fermented. The best fermentation time is about 12 hours at low elevation or best is 24 at higher elevation. The seeds are rinsed and spread to dry on a hoshidana or drying rack. Traditional hoshidanas have a rolling roof, best to cover them in rain. It takes seven to 14 days to dry seeds to an optimal moisture level of between 10 and 13% (by Department of Agriculture regulations: 9.0-12.0%). From here, the pure Kona coffee is stored as "pergamino" or in it's parchment. The parchment is best milled off prior to roasting.
Best Coffee Types of Pure Kona online
The Pure Kona is classified by law according to seed. Type 1 Kona consist of two seeds per pergamino, flat on one side, oval on the other. Type II Kona consist of one round bean in these cherries, otherwise known as peaberry. Further grading of these pure types of Kona depends on size, moisture content, and purity of bean. The grades I of Kona is 'Extra Fancy', 'Fancy', '1st', Select', and 'Kona Prime'. The grades of II Kona are 'Peaberry '1st' and 'Prime'. Also, a lower grade, called '3rd' (or 'Triple X') can not legally be labeled as "best Kona" but as 'Hawaiian'. Not an official classification grade, but commonly used by best farmers, is the Estate grade where the various grades are not being separated from each other. Only the 'Number 3' and 'Off-grade' is being sorted out.
