Hawaii Coffee Factory – Coffee Bean Infusion

Selectively Picked Kona Coffee Beans

Only the red ripe cherries are harvested and we pick them individually by hand every other weekend. Rotating among the Hawaiian Kona trees every 12-14 days, choosing only the best cherries which are at the peak of ripeness. This kind of special attention to the Hawaiian or Kona coffee harvest is labor intensive, and thus more costly to produce. It is the primary method to harvest our Kona Coffee Beans. Making sure, the Ol’Man at every stage repeatedly checks Hawaii Kona Coffee Factory blends for quality and taste.

Hawaii Kona Coffee Factory has a Sweeter, Smoother Almost Velvet Flavor

The beans must now be dried to approximately 12 percent moisture which assure premium coffee bean flavor. Our beans, left with 20% pulp and still encased inside the parchment envelope (the endocarp), are Hawaii sun dried by spreading them on screened bottom drying boxes inside under 80% shade cloth. Gently turned day and night to maintain even temperature. Leaving pulp on requires constant turning but the results for our fans is Hawaii Coffee Factory has a sweeter, smoother almost velvet flavor. We take a lot more time and add a little more Hawaiian Aloha to create the world finest coffee beans.
