Rich and full-flavoured Kona coffee gourmet blend
The KONA BLEND from GROSCHE is a gourmet blend of Hawaiian Kona coffee and premium South American Arabica beans. Rich and full-flavoured, this blend features earthy characteristics and the nutty and fruity flavours of Hawaiian Kona. This KONA coffee is available as a dark and medium roast and comes in a 1 pound bag.
What is the history of Kona coffee beans?
Samuel Reverend Ruggles brought coffee to Hawaii in the 1820’s. He brought it to Hawaii from Brazil. Following that, an English merchant Nicholas Greenwell later established Kona as a brand in the 19th century. This coffee blooms in February and march. Then the red cherry-like fruit is picked by late August. Then the fruit pickers pick the fruit by hand several times till the coming January. The beans are then separated from the pulp of the cherry and dried.
Kona coffee has a very rich and smooth flavor that’s very famous. Our blend is a Kona coffee Canada roast with 20% or more Kona coffee and a custom blend of similar beans from South America with the same flavor profiles. This gives a wonderful Kona flavor bean at a fraction of the price of 100% Kona coffee beans.

How to store your coffee
We do not recommend to put your coffee in the freezer. Freezing your coffee puts it in contact with moisture which ends up draining it of its flavor. The best place to store your KONA BLEND coffee is within an airtight container, somewhere cool, dark and dry. This could be a pantry or a cabinet, just as long as it’s somewhere away from heat and light. So, if you really want to store your coffee on your counter, keep the coffee in a canister that is opaque, airtight, and away from direct sunlight. Use it up within 1-2 weeks of opening to enjoy a coffee with the freshest, fullest aroma.
