Has anyone purchased 100% Kona coffee at the B.I. Costco recently? Just wondering what the cost per pound is now. The last time I bought it, Jan. 2007, it was about $18>$20/LB. and the only 100% brand was "Nicky Beans", IIRC.

Thanks for the tip Rick. We'll be close by at the KCR. :) The problem is we arrive on a Sunday. Can't wait 6 days for 100% Kona.

Do what I did....mail order prior to the trip....to set the mood! :D

Seriously though, the coffee is very good. We tried other brands when we were there and really did prefer Kona King. :)

I buy it at the one in Maui. It's about 19.95 for a pound. The price doesn't vary that much.

We got ours at Greenwell Farms, Kealakekua, Big Island, in Oct. Their Private Reserve was 31.95 per pound, expensive, but very good.

I missed it so much after leaving the B.I. that I have it Fed-Ex'd every month to my home in Denver. You can purchase it using monthly, six month intervals or year long plans and it lands on my doorstep like clockwork.
It's $36 a pound a worth every penny!!:banana:

When I was on the Big Island in February I didn't have a chance to get to any of the coffee plantations. So, I went to Long's and bought a couple of bags of 100% Kona beans. I got some of the best I've ever gotten there! Unfortunately I can't remember the name now :eek: .

Kona Coffee @ Costco

We bought 100% Kona Coffee at Costco in Kona 2 weeks ago for $19.95 per pound. The brand was Thunder Mountain which is also available at Long's and various supermarkets for considerably more money. It seems to stack up well with the other brands we have tried--Greenwells, Blue Sky, Hualalai, etc. It is available ground or as whole beans.

$12.99 per lb

Try Waikoloa Village market, I was there last week and it was on sale for 12.99 a lb. Several brands were at that sale price. You will need to use a malaki card. You can sign up for one on the spot if you need to. The market there is very reasonable.

12.99 a pound

Sounds like the bags which say Kona Coffee but only contain 10% Kona. Look carefully.$13 a pound is below cost

Or the bags were 12 oz. You will NEVER see fresh 100% Kona coffee for less than $18-$19/LB.

Other option

You can also try the Farmer's Market in Kona, which is held next to the Catholic Church on Alii Dr. I don't remember the brands offered there, but there were several, and I seem to remember the prices (for 100% Kona coffee) were decent. There's also another smaller place (sort of like a famer's market, but more gift stuff than produce) which is further south on Alii Drive.....advertised in the visitor brochures, where I also bought Kona coffee. I can't remember the days they were open, but fun to check it out.

A lot of TUGGERS have taken coffee farm tours. I've done the Greenwell & a few others. They're interesting.
