BACKGROUND: PROCESS OF REFINEMENT
After Kona Moon is milled, it undergoes three additional steps that elevate the quality and meets our expectations: optical sorting, grading, and storing in Grain-pro bags.
✓ Grading separates the Kona coffee into different sizes and removes some defects. This creates a clean consistency in the cup.
✓ Optical sorting removes remaining defects, discolored and damaged beans.
✓ Grain-pro storage protects the delicate coffee from Hawaii's humid environment.
In addition to harvesting ripe Kona coffee cherry, these three steps separate exceptional specialty-grade Kona coffee from commodity-grade Kona coffees, which can be overly acidic or bitter. Thatʻs one among many reasons to choose specialty Kona coffees, like Kona Moon, over others.
