What is Kona Snow?
February and March cover the Kona, Hawaii landscape with snow — Kona snow. White blossoms top green coffee trees and fill the air with sweet fragrance, looking like snowfall in the warm breezes of Hawaii. A magnificent time to visit the Big Island! But, this “snow” offers more than an amazing view. It holds the promise of a world-class cup of coffee.
The Life Cycle of Kona Coffee
Located on the Hualalai volcano’s slopes, the Kona Coffee Belt covers only 30 miles of the Big Island’s coast and offers fertile soil for growing the world’s best coffee beans. This small growing area makes Kona snow coffee a rare but exquisite treat. Each sweet, white flower blooming in February and March transforms into a green cherry which ripens to a deep red over several months.
The Perfect Cup of Kona Snow
Don’t fall for the cheaper “Kona blend” coffee found in stores. For the perfect cup of coffee that originates from this Kona snow, make sure you only buy “100 percent Kona coffee.” Nothing excites the tastebuds or transports you to the Big Island and trees topped with Kona snow in the same way.
