The Best of 100% Kona Coffee…. Our Process

Mountain Thunder’s 100% Kona Private Reserve 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. 

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 starting 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 essential quality steps that allow Mountain Thunder to provide only “the best of the best” 100% Kona Coffees for you.  

When we receive your order, we will freshly roast your coffee. Our RoastMaster roasts our Mountain Thunder coffee daily to assure that we ship the freshest coffees from our farm direct to you.

We package 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 most 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 great aroma and flavor.
