J. Martinez & Company Fine Coffees Announces the Return of Kona Coffee

Coffee lovers everywhere, rejoice! The Kona coffee shortage has lessened, and J. Martinez & Company has Hawaiian Kona beans in stock, ready to ship.

    NORCROSS, GA, January 16, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- J. Martinez & Company Fine Coffees is pleased to announce the long awaited return of Kona coffee. Unavailable for much of 2012 due to a supply shortage, this delicious Hawaiian coffee is once again available from J. Martinez & Co. in one pound bags of either Medium or Dark Roast.

Renowned for its complex and well-balanced flavor profile, Hawaii Kona coffee has been in short supply due to an ongoing infestation of coffee berry borers in the Kona region. Coffee berry borers are a notorious problem among coffee growers in other parts of the world, where they can quickly multiply and destroy entire crops of coffee. How these tiny beetles, which are native to Africa, found their way to Hawaii is still a mystery, but their effect has been devastating to specialty coffee producers all over the island.

The Hawaiian government has been doing its best to help Kona coffee plantation owners to control the coffee berry borer infestation, and the coffee crops are now in recovery. This has allowed premium roasters, like J. Martinez & Company, to revive their stock of Kona coffee from Hawaii and resume shipping.

"It feels like we have waited forever to bring Kona beans back to our customers," notes John Martinez, owner of J. Martinez & Company Fine Coffees. "We are delighted to finally have Kona coffee back in stock and ready to custom roast."

J. Martinez & Company takes pride in its Kona Hawaii coffee, and for that reason, the company only offers 100% pure Kona beans--never a Kona blend. The company only roasts its beans to order, and ships them immediately after roasting to ensure that its customers get the finest and freshest beans possible. To taste the superior quality of J.
