How to brew the perfect cup of Kona Coffee

Step by step instructions on making the perfect cup of Kona Coffee, everytime!


You will be amazed at the taste difference in a perfectly brewed cup of Kona Coffee. Here is the Step-By-Step process to achieving that perfection:

  1. Choose your favorite Kona Coffee bean style

    At Kuahana Coffee, we feature all the Kona Coffee bean choices so you can brew your favorite. Choose:

    • Extra Fancy Medium Roast – for its top grade beans and medium-smooth flavor
    • Extra Fancy Dark Roast – for its top grade beans and full-bodied flavor
    • Peaberry – the highly-prized Peaberry beans with the most intense and smooth flavor

  2. Store unused Kona beans in the freezer

    Storing your Kona Coffee beans in their flavor-sealed bags in the freezer will extend the life of the beans and freshness. Grind only what you need to brew for the morning or the day. When resealing your Kona Coffee bag, be sure to press out any remaining air through the one-way release valve on the front of the bag.

  3. Grinding your beans

    The rich, spicy aroma created by grinding fresh coffee is nothing short of amazing. A little known secret to brewing perfect coffee is this: it starts with the grind. Coarse, Medium, and Fine “grinds” are used for various brewing methods to get the best flavor possible.

    Grind Used for
    Coarse Grind French Press, Toddy Makers (cold brew method), Vacuum Coffee Maker, and Percolaters
    Medium Grind Auto Drip Makers (with flat bottom filters)
    Medium/Fine Grind Drip Makers (with cone-shaped filters)
    Fine Grind Stove Top Espresso Pots
    Super Fine Grind Espresso Machines

    A good rule of thumb is to start with 2 tablespoons of coffee beans for every 6-8 ounces of water. You can adjust to your taste. Once the grinder is loaded, use short pulses of a few seconds each so the coffee doesn’t overheat.

    Using a Burr Grinder:

    The benefit of using a burr grinder is greater precision and versatility. The coffee beans fall down between two burrs that have been pre-set by you to allow accurate grinding for the brewing method you use. You may need to experiment with the different burr settings to adjust for your taste.

  4. Brew your Kona coffee

    With any brewing method, make sure your water is between 190-200 degrees Farenheit … boiling water will burn the grinds.

    Brewing with a French Press (The Recommended Way)

    There are many coffee-brewer options out there but we highly recommend using the French Press for making the best cup. Add 1 rounded tablespoon of ground coffee per 4 ounces of water to your French Press. After adding the hot water, stir the coffee. This allows the grounds to fully interact with the hot water. Allow the coffee to steep for 3-5 minutes (set your timer) before plunging. When you do plunge, do so very slowly so as not to extract bitterness from the grounds.

    Brewing with a Drip Coffee Maker

    We recommend using a natural paper filter. Metal and cloth filters can add unexpected tastes and textures to your perfect cup.
