Snow in Kona

Snow in Kona?  You bet! Take a look at the picture and see for yourself. Here is our delicious Kona Rose Coffee in full flower. When the flowering is heavy it is referred to as Kona Snow   as entire hillsides will be white with these beautiful flowers. The coffee flowers in several rounds from Dec- June. Each flowering corresponds to a harvest in the fall.  Each flower represents one coffee cherry, each with 2 coffee beans inside.  It takes a lot of cherry to make a cup of coffee!   As you can see from the photo, we are expecting a good crop of Kona coffee this year!
