  • Kona

    Hi Andy

    Just roasted my last 200gms of the Kona Extra Fancy. Not the cheapest bean but so easy to roast and over a range of temperatures the most interesting coffee I have ever had - loved it.

    Are there any plans for any more Konas?

    Cheers

        Re: Kona

        I just came back from Hawaii and was tempted to bring some green beans back but didnt...and was very happy when the customs guy told me they would have gone straight in the bin...would be keen to try them out though if Andy can import some

          You could have bought them back but need an AQIS import permit for the USA. $125 for 12 months and you are allowed to bring 5kg in with you if you are the permit holder... sometimes you can ship up to 5kg but that is far more hit and miss.

          When we find a good one we grab it, mostly thats once a year but at nearly $60/kg ($3000 a bag!) we dont land much at a time!

          Its on the radar though.

            At $150+ for 2.5 Kg I would have to be careful the wife

            1/ did not fund any evidence if the price paid. :-X

            2/ dose not develop a taste for it. ;D

            Would there be any chance of a smaller quantity (say 30 to $50 dollars worth) for those of us that are still waiting on our turn to crack X-lotto?

              Please remember that for me to offer you any of anything I have to buy it regardless of how much I sell.

              ...but having said that, when we sell Kona we do so in 1kg lots.

                    Mum went to Hawaii recently - went to a Kona co-op - http://www.kpfc.com. She bought 2 coffees for me - a mild roasted Kona peaberry (yum) and a dark roast Kona peaberry, of which I havent tried yet. Just a thought.

                        Roasted is fine but not green. Get the peaberry stuff if you can.
