Default Kona

I want to buy some fresh kona beans. Does anyone recommend a good place online to buy?

Ive found sweet okole, royal kona, and kona sharks coffee online so far. Anyone use them?

Ive been buying from BayView Farms in Honaunau, HI for the last 4.5 years after visiting them on my honeymoon. Their coffee is great!

I don't know but I had a co-worker drop off a pound on my desk this morning. Some friend from the islands sent it to him straight from the plantation and he doesn't drink much coffee.

If you dont mind pre-roasted, Costco has a 2lb box of Perry Estate 100% Kona whole beans for $19.95. Its a steal, and they are delicious. I just drank a whole carafe.

Just got my shipment in today. The coffee is sent vacuum-packed which is nice. Wish I brought my french press back to school with me, even though it still tastes great out of the auto-drip!
