OMG, I'm shocked you're not posting your usual deals from Frys! Stick Out Tongue

Seriously though, this is an excellent deal for 5 lbs of coffee. I love me some Kona coffee but I don't know about the quality of this particular brand. Anyone have any personal experience?

EDIT:

Oops!... just caught the fine print from the product description it reads:
Quote :
This a true Kona blend, featuring Hawaiian Kona Fancy beans blended with smooth South Americans to create a cup very similar to 100% Kona. It has many of the same unique flavor qualities, at a fraction of the cost.
No wonder it's so cheap. I think I'll pass. Thumbs down from me.

Cost is high for you?? really?

5 lb Kona bag for $40.80 - works out to roughly $8.16 per lb. ~$8/lb is considered cheap for me but the real problem here is you don't know what kind of sh*t quality you're getting for that $40. Who knows it may turn out to be good but I'm not willing to take the chance. shake head I've had very good quality Kona coffee directly from Hawaii before and it doesn't come cheaply. I don't mind paying for good quality but in this case, it is blended shit. When I want Kona coffee, I want it to be pure. I am not buying this crap.

That's nice. What the hell does it have to do with coffee beans?

that's always the case, some places use a Kauai
Kona and Jamaican Blue Mtn 100% typically run substantially higher

Kona blends are common and typically still run $10-$16/lb

Real Kona is great! Not sure about this blend but all others I tried sucked... neither of them were even close.

You're a very smart guy, but I have to disagree with your comment "always the case".

This [hawaiianisles.com] particular brand doesn't use a blend. I've also had Kona coffee directly brought over from Hawaii when a good family friend once visited there and brought back a couple of bags for our family to enjoy. It's been several years so I can't recall exactly but I don't remember anything about that one being a blend either.

yes but your cost translates to $30/lb which is what I stated for non-blend Kona or Jamaican Blue Mtn. Again, anyone buying Kona Blend is keenly aware of the diff

I'm not debating the cost per pound issue. Like i said in my previous post, I'm willing to pay for high quality.

I am pointing out to you that Kona is not always a blend as you've asserted in your post above.

Not a deal to me. Lots of Coffee Bean Coffee at Grocery Outlets pretty frequently for equivalent of $4-$5 per pound and don't have to buy 5 at a time and get stale. Not a coffee snob but Kona blends usually suck.

Real Kona from my local roaster costs $35+lb. Jamaican Blue $25 for a 10oz bag. I purchased some Nicaragua green beans on Ebay for $2.50lb along with an old popcorn popper. The coffee I roast with that thing tastes almost just as good as some of the coffee selling for $15+lb at my roaster. Im a fairly new coffee snob.
