Kona coffee is the market name for coffee (Coffea arabica) cultivated on the slopes of Hualalai and Mauna Loa in the North and South Kona Districts of the Big Island of Hawaii. This coffee has developed a reputation that has made it one of the most expensive and sought-after coffees in the world. Only coffee from the Kona Districts can be legally described as "Kona". The unique Kona weather pattern of sunny mornings, cloud cover or rain in the afternoons, little wind and mild nights combined with porous, mineral rich volcanic soil, creates favorable coffee growing conditions.
Every different oil will create a soap with a unique character, That combination of oils with 100% pure kona coffee creates a bar of soap that is the best we have found around.
The aroma of freshly brewed coffee, mixed in with a rich scent of pure Hawaiian Kona coffee and a blend of wonderful oils makes this soap not only alluring on your nose but great for your skin. We use a base of olive oil along with coconut, vegetable, sesame, avocado, macadamia nut , kukui nut oils, all great for your skin.
We didn't stop there, for more amazing lather and a scent of morning in Hawaii we added hazelnut oil and shea butter with a touch of pearberry and cinnamon. Since ground coffee is a natural exfoliate and helps move away dead skin cells it also makes a great exfoliator.
This soap is wonderful for all skin types.
Kona coffee beans are classified according to the seed type. Type I beans consist of two beans per cherry, flat on one side, oval on the other. Type II beans consist of one round bean per cherry, otherwise known as a peaberry. That is an essential oils who we added on our kona coffee soaps.
