Macadamia Nut Oil Mayonnaise

Not happy about using raw eggs to make mayonnaise? This recipe eliminates that worry by partially cooking the eggs and it also leaves out the sugar of commercial mayonnaise. Enjoy!

2 large egg yolks
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp water
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp salt
1 cup organic macadamia nut oil

Heat the egg yolks, lemon juice, water, and mustard in a small skillet over very low heat, stirring constantly. At the first sign of thickness, remove from heat and place the skillet in a large pan of cold water. Continue stirring to avoid scrambling the eggs.

Scoop the mixture out of the pan and into a food processor or blender. Blend for a few seconds and then let the mixture sit uncovered to cool for at least 5 minutes. Add the remaining dry ingredients and blend on a low speed. Slowly drizzle the oil into the mixture until all the ingredients are combined.

Scoop into a glass container and refrigerate immediately. Mayonnaise should keep for at least a week.

What is the perfect roast for Kona Coffee?

Aloha, Here at Mahina Mele Farm we studied the perfect way to grow Kona Coffee and process it to get the most balanced and full bodied cup of Kona but to make a delicious cup of Kona the roast is crutial, an art in itself.

What is the perfect roast for Kona Coffee? We think it is a Med-Dark Roast. This roast allows the nuances of Kona Rose Coffee be highlighted and tasted instead of being overpowered by the taste of a dark roast where you really are just tasting the roast. Also with the Med-Dark Roast you still are receiving the caffeine of a med roast but with a deep and smooth finish.

Try Kona Rose Coffee and taste the Kona , taste the roast. Enjoy. Farm Direct

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.

Our Kona Rose coffee is made from 100% Kona coffee beans, which have been certified organic, so you know exactly what’s in your cup. Enjoy your coffee, and thank your for supporting Mahina Mele Farm!

Kona Coffee is Kona Snow

When Kona Coffee is in full flower it is called Kona Snow. The hillsides are white with flowers and fragrant as gardenias. Coffee is in the Gardenia family and it has an intoxicating smell for 2 to 3 days. The Kona Snow is wonderful this year. Try Kona Rose and taste why Kona Coffee is so sought after. We use only Certified Organic practices, pick the cherry when its fully mature, and ferment the coffee to perfection. We roast our coffee to a medium-dark roast which brings out a rich bold full bodied flavor with chocolate and fruit undertones. Try Kona Rose Coffee for an unforgettable cup of Kona.

Organic Kona Coffee is Superfood too!

Kona Rose Coffee is one of my superfoods, If you have tried Organic Kona Rose Coffee then you know it is separates itself from the rest! Kona Rose Coffee is smooth and rich with chocolate and fruit undertones, this is partly because of the way its picked (red off the vine). I just read…. “research over the past few years suggests that coffee consumption may protect against type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease and liver cirrhosis. And our latest study on coffee and mortality found that people who regularly drank coffee actually had a somewhat lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease”. I am sure there are many variables to what makes someone more healthy than another but I do know as a coffee lover and grower, our Kona Rose Coffee is rich, full-bodied and delicious, feels great to drink, and is my personal superfood .
