Our Roasting Philosophy
Our roasting philosophy is anchored in the idea of "mālama pono" (or to take good care).
Out of the utmost respect for our 100-year-old farm, our premium Kona crop, and our customers, we are committed to ensuring you get the freshest, most evenly roasted coffee possible.
Each grade/size is roasted as a separate lot to ensure the beans roast evenly; we also roast at a minimum of weekly.
This is paramount in ensuring your cup of Domain Kona is the fruit forward perfection that is the hallmark of the region.
Kona Coffee Grading
Kona EXTRA FANCY Grade: the largest & meatiest beans at #19 size (will not pass through a 19/64-inch hole) with the fewest imperfections per lb. (< 10)
Kona FANCY Grade: slightly smaller beans at #18 & allows for marginally more imperfections per lb. (< 16) than Extra Fancy
Kona #1 Grade: including #17 & #16 sizes, & allowing for slightly more imperfections per lb. (< 20)
Kona Prime Grade: smaller than size #16 & are typically used in Kona Blend; Kona Blend is usually only 10% Kona beans
Hawaii #3 Grade: allows for 35% defective beans by weight; this grade can never be labeled as anything more specific than Hawaiian Coffee
Off Grade: lower quality than Hawaii #3; use of the term “Hawaii” in conjunction with “Off Grade” is prohibited
Domain Kona is Always 100% Kona Estate Grown
At Domain Kona, we offer Estate Coffee, Extra Fancy Coffee, & (when supply allows) Peaberry.
Our Extra Fancy Coffee represents the cream of our crop, quite literally:
100% Kona Extra Fancy Grade (size 19)
Our Estate Coffee is a premium blend of only the 3 highest grades of pure Kona:
25% Extra Fancy + 50% Fancy + 25% #1 Kona
Peaberry refers to a coffee cherry containing 1 round bean as opposed to 2 flat beans. 1 bean per cherry instead of 2 allows that bean to absorb all the nutrients it would otherwise have to share, concentrating its flavor.
With Kona coffee accounting for a tiny .001% of world coffee production, and only 5% of that .001% qualifying as Peaberry, this coffee is truly one of the world's Finest & Rarest!
