Organic Kona Coffee
This Organic Kona Coffee is grown on fertile volcanic soil of the Kona region in Hawaii. Organic Kona Coffee is produced in farms that do not use chemical fertilizers and chemical pesticides. They are absolutely dependent on the fertility of the soil (enriched by volcanic ash and lava), organic fertilizers, and biotic pest control methods. It has a distinct taste and flavor due to the climate and soil in that region. While Organic Kona Coffee itself is a delicacy, the Pea-Berry variety is the best. Always look for the certificate for authenticity and “100% Organic Kona Coffee” on the packets. Many fraudsters will be trying to sell normal coffee under the Kona tag.

Now we’re going to talk about the species of coffee which all of you might have already heard.
The following are the two main cultivars of coffee, grown in different regions.
This is the most widely used species. Almost all the coffee beans that come from Arabia, Eastern Africa, Asia, and Latin America belong to varieties that fall under this species categorization. People have their own opinions, but Arabica is considered far superior in quality to Robusta.
Coffea Canephora (Robusta)
Varieties of this species are spread over the Central and Western Africa.
All the varieties of Organic Coffee mentioned above can be used in making Organic Espresso Coffee. Furthermore, when these varieties are purchased through a Fair Trade Organization, they are called Organic Fair Trade Coffee.
Organic Fair Trade Coffee
Organic Fair Trade Coffee is a movement or way of selling or marketing organic coffee to ensure that a justified portion of money from the sales of organic coffee should go to the farmers that actually produce it. So it would be fair for everybody. There are various fair trade organizations and bodies through which, if purchases are made, then farmers get paid appropriately. They are also paid a premium against a price rise of coffee around the world. The farmers are given an indirect share in the international business this way by bypassing the brokers. To achieve this target, the sale of Organic Fair Trade Coffee is guided by certain principles laid down by various fair trade organizations and bodies. FINE is the most widely recognized Fair Trade Governing/Promoting body, which is mainly operational in Europe. Besides governing, monitoring and promoting fair trade, these bodies also do the certification of fair trade articles. Therefore, all the Organic Fair Trade Coffee that is selling in the market needs to be certified by one of these certifying bodies, as well as by an agency that certifies Organic products.
