If you know your coffee, you’ve probably heard about Koa coffee. It is a robust, delicious and aromatic coffee that has won numerous awards and respect in the coffee world, including winning the “Best Coffee in America” award by Forbes.
Koa is a type of Kona coffee – if you’re confused by the two names, don’t worry, it’s not a typo. Kona coffee is a species of coffee that is only grown in Hawaii on the Kona Coffee Belt, which is situated on the fertile slopes of the Hualali and Mauna Loa volcanoes that are 500-3000 feet above sea level. This is said to be the best coffee growing region in the world, with the fertile volcanic earth and ideal weather working happily together to nurture coffee plants that produce coffee beans widely celebrated as one of the highest quality in the world.
If you fancy your coffee with less acidity and a smoother taste, then Koa coffee is probably the perfect choice for you. Despite being smooth, it is by no means weak – it has a strong body, sweet and mellow tasting with a hint of fruity flavors and fantastic aromatic qualities that remind you of a hawaiian vacation in the sunshine. The Koa coffee brand produces a wide variety of coffee roasts and blends using the Kona bean as the main product. The 3 main blends that are the most popular are listed below:
1. Private Reserve Kona Coffee
