Here's the thing with Kona coffee, folks, it's delicious. I mean it's really friggin' good. People travel from all over the world to visit the Big Island, not only for the lush, tropical paradise, and relaxing bed and breakfast accommodations, but mostly for the world famous coffee that can only be found in the prime growing zone known as the Kona Coffee Belt.


100% Kona coffee is smooth, with hints of chocolate and caramel, and no bitter aftertaste. Getting a satisfying cup of Kona coffee outside of Hawaii is challenging. Buying a bag of 100% Kona coffee and having it shipped can be expensive, and if you want the wholly organic variety then prepare to spend a pretty penny.


For those times when I need a shot of Kona coffee, but I don't want to pay an arm and a leg, I grab a can of UCC Hawaii Kona Blend Coffee with Milk. The important thing to remember here is this isn't 100% Kona coffee, in fact this is about 10% Kona coffee, making it a blend of other coffee beans from elsewhere in Hawaii. That's why a can of this costs less than $2.00. The delicious Kona coffee taste is diminished because 1) it's in a can, 2) it's a coffee blend, and 3) nothing is ever as good as freshly brewed. But if you can look past all that other stuff, it's not entirely awful.
