WHY WE LOVE IT: Ameri-Kona is an exceptionally fruity blend of coffees from different producers of the Americas. It is a celebration of the hard work and dedication of this section of coffee producers.
Ameri-Kona is a twist on the classic phrase, “A Slice of Americana”. For the second year, we’ve put together a blend for the Fourth of July season that celebrates coffee producers from the Americas — including the only coffee commercially grown in the US, Kona.
Comprised of coffees from Colombia, Mexico, and fresh-grown Kona coffee from the slopes of the Mauna Loa volcano on the big island of Hawaii, Ameri-Kona has been specifically blended to give you an exceptional taste for the summer. The Kona gives the blend a caramel sweetness and light florals, Colombia Chachagüí adds in delicious and unforgettable fruitiness, and our popular Mexico La Cañada adds chocolate and slight nuttiness. The tastes combine to create one the sweetest and fruitiest coffees we've had in recent memory.
This year, we're spicing Ameri-Kona up a bit by including Kona peaberry. Peaberry is a rare occurrence in coffee sorting, where the coffee cherry produces one seed instead of two, and it accounts for only 1% of the total crop. The coffee takes on some distinct characteristics as a result, and we think it lends a little extra fruitiness to this year's blend.
We couldn’t think of a better way — or a better time — to celebrate the coffees of the Americas. Ameri-Kona provides a rare chance to taste the hard work and dedication of this section of coffee producers, and comes together deliciously as a sugary-sweet, inviting, and wonderfully rich blend.
The first 50 orders with the applicable code will include one free 50g sample bag of whole bean pure Kona Peaberry coffee AND get 10% off their 10oz bag(s) of Ameri-Kona. Don’t miss your chance to get this pure taste of the only coffee grown in the United States.
