The Tasty Difference In Kona Beans When it comes to coffee, Americans know what they want. As a matter of fact, you'd be hardpressed not to find a little espresso kiosk in every little town dotting a trail from coast to coast or stationed around every corner in most of the larger metropolises. A cup of excellent coffee can usually be found in countless places such as restaurants, service stations, specialty coffee shops, University campuses, sporting events and a lot of other places. You’ve probably become familiar with some of the exotic names on the self-serve labels; coffees from Columbia, Mexico, Indonesia, Africa and also Kona coffee, are found on the pots from some favorite coffee places. But where did this relationship start? Perhaps the American caffeinated fixation has roots in the United States' tumultuous and burgeoning beginnings, when rebellious colonists thwarted the very British tea habit (and the British monarchy) in an effort to embrace the richer and fuller-bodied drink that coffee provides. While food was scare during the Civil War, coffee was abundant where soldiers often savored a strong cup of coffee right before battle. Be assured, America’s ancestral pioneers, who blazed the trails heading west, always made sure that coffee was placed high on that very important supply list. What the average American may well not know is where their favorite libation’s unique area of origin begins. People may be familiar with television ads of Juan Valdez and his iconic mule and the Columbian coffee beans he touts, but what about other crops, perhaps those that are grown within the Unites States? Kona Coffee is one of these. On the island of Kona, Hawaii for many decades this rich and distinctively aromatic bean has been farmed. It had royal beginnings starting back in the mid-1800's and the crop has grown into one of the greatest and most successful exports from this exotic location. For generations, native Islanders and Chinese laborers have worked relentlessly to hand pick each and every bean, doing work for non-native plantation owners. Gradually, Japanese and Filipino workers followed suit and the evidence of this multicultural achievement can be tasted in its satisfying brew. Looking into Hawaii's rich and colorful past can certainly explain why this unique brand of coffee has really made its mark and is valued the world over. Grown in a tropical environment, the equatorial belt zone in areas like Central America, the Caribbean, Mexico and Hawaii have the best conditions for coffee beans to thrive. With the consistent viable conditions, these places have warmer climates that keep the coffee beans from freezing in the winter because the temperatures never reach that low. What makes Hawaii’s Kona bean jump out among many of its class is the volcanic nature of the land, rich and fecund. With such fertile ground, the tree thrives under the warm, sunny days, gentle tropical rains and under the blanket of protective clouds that this landscape supplies. To achieve that world renown quality, harvesting is done during the pea berry phase which is a distinction that the bean is given. The world's very best beans are produced here with excellent care and attention. 1% of all coffee is considered or made up of the Kona coffee bean and it is deemed a rare commodity for the rich brew it generates. Without the bitter after taste that other roasts have, the hearty and smooth taste of Kona Island coffee offers that perfect cup of coffee to lovers all over the world.
