About Kona Blends
Authentic Kona coffee, by Hawaiian law, requires the label “100% Kona Coffee” be prominently displayed on the package. Hawaiian law also states that Kona blends state the percentage of Kona beans on the label (there is no matching federal law.) Some retailers use terms such as “Kona Blend”, “Kona Roast”, or “Kona Style”. There must be a minimum of 10% Kona beans in a Kona blend, but the remaining coffee beans are not required to be identified, are usually are not.
We are a member of the Kona Coffee Farmers Association (KFCA, visit them at www.konacoffeefarmers.org), which seeks to protect the “Kona coffee heritage” and promotes buying directly from Kona coffee farmers. Their video talks about these blends, and one of the hidden ingredients they contain.
