Pure Kona, Kona Organic & Peaberry
At Pele Plantations, we only offer 100% Kona Coffee. There is no blending or flavoring done at our farm. Just artisinal, small-batch roasting of single-estate pure Kona.
We do however offer you three distinct 100% Kona Coffee options:
100% Pure Kona Coffee
We procure the finest, high-elevation, award-winning 100% Pure Kona Coffee from our farm partners in the Kona district. We purchase the hand-picked coffee cherry from partner farms the same day it’s picked, and process it right here on our farm. When you order, we roast it up freshly for you and ship it the same day.
We never mix our 100% Pure Kona Coffee with anything else. When you order coffee from a specific estate (such as Ikehu), that’s all you get. It’s 100% delicious and consistent every time you order.
Our 100% Pure Kona Coffees:
100% Organic Kona Coffee
Our farm is 100% Certified Organic by the ICS (International Certification Services, Inc.) Our farm, and the other organic farms who supply us with coffee, meet rigorous requirements and produce unbelievably good coffee. We take all the organic coffee cherry we obtain from our farm and others through a completely chemical- and pesticide-free process.* The result is the best coffee we’ve ever tasted.
*Non-organic coffee is handled and processed separately from our organic coffees. But once it enters our farm, it is processed in a completely organic environment.
Our 100% Kona Organic Coffees:
100% Kona Peaberry
The technical name for Kona Peaberry is caracol, or “snail” in Spanish. It’s actually a mutation of a Kona coffee bean that occurs while it is still in its cherry form. Instead of growing in a pair, only one egg-shaped bean matures.
Peaberry is considered pretty rare, since it represents only 5% of the entire crop yield.
Kona Peaberry fans love that it packs an intense flavor like nothing else. They insist that because the bean did not have to share nutrients with a twin, the smaller, rounder and sweeter bean is superior in taste and flavor. (Those who prefer pure estate coffee deny this phenomenon!) It’s a hotly debated topic, but luckily we have something for every Kona coffee lover.
We offer 100% Kona Peaberry whenever we can. It’s always a coveted product in short supply.
