    Hawaiian Kona Peaberry Greens

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Dont suppose anyone knows where I can buy authentic Hawaiian Kona Peaberry green beans?
    Tried this coffee years ago and it was fantastic, but very expensive.
    Would like to try roasting some though....

    I guess you will need to do a little searching* :-?

    FWIW, I think there are plenty of great coffees far less expensive and better than Kona, but if it rocks your boat.... This stuff is not cheap and can hang around shops for quite a while. Id be more concerned with when it was harvested rather than only price.

    +1

    Just finished off the last of my stash a week or so back and must say that there are other beans out there that are far better (for my palate anyway) and thats not taking into account the price.

    Have to agree, wore my wife out trying Kona in Hawaii, each cup left me thinking whats all the fuss about, over priced and decidedly average in my opinion. :)
