Hawaiian Kona Extra Fancy
Kona is a special coffee: A delicate citrus fruit blends well with the balanced and smooth notes of mocha and vanilla. Our Kona Extra Fancy is 100% pure Hawaiian Kona arabica coffee. There is no blending in this offering.
It is a rare occasion (if you consider once every 15 years to be rare) that Arbuckle carries Hawaiian coffees let alone 100% Kona Extra Fancy. This is very limited availability that will sell out quickly. Our Kona comes directly from Greenwell Farms in Kona, Hawaii from this year's crop! They have a history in coffee as far back as 1850. If you contact them directly, their Private Reserve Extra Fancy is sold out for the year.
A perfect gift for the coffee lover in your life that appreciates an affordable luxury.

Up until the close of the Civil war, coffee was sold green. It had to be roasted on a wood stove or in a skillet over a campfire before it could be ground and brewed. One burned bean ruined all; there was no consistency.
In 1865 John Arbuckle and his brother Charles, partners in a Pittsburgh grocery business, changed all this by patenting a process for roasting and coating coffee beans with an egg and sugar glaze to seal in the flavor and aroma.
Marketed under the name ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE in patented, airtight, one pound packages, the new coffee was an instant success with chuck wagon cooks in the west faced with the task of keeping Cowboys supplied with plenty of hot coffee out on the range. ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE packages bore a yellow label with the name ARBUCKLES’ in large red letters across the front, beneath which flew a Flying Angel trademark over the words ARIOSA COFFEE in black letters. Shipped all over the country in sturdy wooden crates, one hundred packages to a crate, ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE became so dominant in the west that many Cowboys were not aware there was any other brand.
Keen marketing minds, the Arbuckle Brothers printed signature coupons on the bags of coffee redeemable for all manner of notions including handkerchiefs, razors, scissors and wedding rings. To sweeten the deal, each package of ARBUCKLES’ contained a stick of peppermint candy. Due to the demands on chuck wagon cooks to keep ready supplies of hot ARBUCKLES’ on hand around the campfire, the peppermint stick became a means by which that steady coffee supply was ground. Upon hearing the cook’s call, “Who wants the candy?” some of the toughest Cowboys on the trail were known to vie for the opportunity of manning the coffee grinder in exchange for satisfying a sweet tooth.
Today thanks to the folks at ARBUCKLE, the Cowboys’ favorite, ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE, is available once more. Complete with the original Flying Angel trade mark, these one pound packages of rich beans are every inch the full-bodied, aromatic coffee you get from ARBUCKLES’. There’s even a stick of peppermint inside each bag! No longer just a fond memory for a dwindling breed of old-time cowmen, ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE is back as good as ever.
This is some excellent coffee.
Certainly a nice coffee but I'd honestly say not worth the extra cost. I'll stick with the regular Arbuckle's Ariosa.
Every morning I start my day with a blend of 50/50 Kona and Arbuckles. It ain't just the peppermint stick.
This coffee is fantastic. It is pricey, stronger than the others and the taste is worth it. I save this one for the weekends when I can really sit and enjoy it. I purchased for my Sister who introduced me to Arbuckles coffee and she loves it too.
