100% Kona Peaberry Coffee 16oz


About Mountain Thunder’s 100% Kona Peaberry 

Coffee connoisseurs have told us that Mountain Thunder’s 100% Kona Peaberry Coffee may be the ultimate in gourmet Kona Coffee.

Comprising only 3-5% of the entire Kona Coffee crop, peaberries are the rarest of beans.

Peaberry are round-shaped coffee beans, unlike 95% of coffee beans, which have a flat side. Peaberries form when one of the seeds in the coffee fruit, the “cherry,” does not fertilize, leaving one bean inside the fruit. Thus, all of the coffee fruit’s sugars and nutrition concentrate in one bean rather than the usual two.

Kona Peaberry Coffee provides a slightly lighter body and sweeter taste profile than our Private Reserve and Premium Kona Coffees. Our Peaberry demonstrates a more complex taste profile with less acidity.

Kona Peaberry is always in short supply due to the high demand among coffee aficionados and a restricted supply.

The Best of 100% Kona Peaberry Coffee…Our Process

Because of the different shape, size, and density, we have created unique roasting profiles ideal for our peaberry coffee beans. This attention to sorting and roasting makes  Mountain Thunder’s 100% Kona Peaberry the “best of the best” or, as some connoisseurs have said, “the champagne of Kona Coffees.”

Mountain Thunder’s 100% Kona Peaberry Coffee starts its journey to your cup from the famous Kona Coffee Belt on the Big Island of Hawaii. Our 100% Kona Coffees are grown in an area that is only 26 miles long by 3 miles wide … providing ideal volcanic soil, cool mountain weather, abundant rain, and higher elevations for growing the finest coffee in the world. Then, at the height of ripeness, our pickers select only the fully ripe coffee cherry and handpick each fruit. Within 24 hours we begin processing the coffee fruit in our own mill, removing the fruit pulp and beginning the drying process. 

After our 100% Kona Coffee has reached the proper moisture content, we age it for a few months in our temperature and humidity-controlled warehouse. This “resting” period helps bring out our famous Mountain Thunder 100% Kona Coffee aroma and flavor. 

When our dried coffee is ready, we process it in our own dry mill, removing the parchment layer to expose the green coffee bean.  Next, we sort our green coffee by size, density, and color. These are important quality steps that allow Mountain Thunder to provide only “the best of the best” 100% Kona Coffees for you.  Finally, our RoastMaster roasts our Mountain Thunder coffee daily to assure that we ship the freshest coffees from our farm direct to you.

From our mill, the green coffee beans are returned to our temperature and humidity-controlled warehouse right here on our Cloud Forest Farm adjacent to our roastery.  When we receive your order, we will freshly roast your coffee. It is packaged in multi-layer bags that will not allow any moisture to intrude.  Immediately after your roasted coffee is accurately weighed and the bag is ready to be sealed … we pump food-grade nitrogen gas into the bag to “flush” out the majority of the air.  This forces most of the oxygen, which would cause aroma and flavor to degrade, out of the bag …. All this happens less than a second before the bag is heat-sealed, assuring you the best 100% Kona Coffee you can buy. 

All Mountain Thunder 100% Kona Coffees are hygienically sealed in our custom-designed bags. Regardless of the size of the bag, you order … there will be a one-way valve that allows air inside the bag to escape while not permitting any outside air or moisture to enter the bag.  This valve allows Mountain Thunder to package your 100% Kona Coffee sooner after roasting, maximizing that famous aroma and flavor.
