Our Story - From east to West, Hawaii Bound, Share in the Celebration, Where True Love Was Found - Hawaiian at Heart, Tricia and Sean Ryan. Picture of Patricia Lynn Erich, St. Marys, PA. picture of Sean Casey Ryan, Manhattan Beach, CA - After graduating from Physical Therapy school, we both had the opportunity to work on the Big Island of Hawaii. It was not long before we found each other in this paradise. Dancing Hula... Talk Story on the Beach... Playing Golf... Hiking... Racing Triathlons... Coffee farms visits... We moved back to the Mainland to be closer to family but missed Hawaii. After returning to the Big Island for our wedding in 2006, we began dreaming of a way to bring more Aloha in our daily lives. In Sept. 2007, Kona Essence was official. the people and culture of Hawaii have found a special place in our hearts. Kona Essence was created to share our love of the beautiful island along with one of its most tasty treasures... 100% Kona Coffee. Warmth - Energy - and Plenty of ALOHA

Our Beans - We start with the finest beans available: one of hawaii's most tasty treasures 100% Kona Coffee. And, not just any Kona coffee... Our beans are Estate grown by our top Kona grower, Farmer Gary, of Kona Earth Farms. Located on the tropical slopes of the Hualalai volcano in the famous Kona coffee district on the Big Island of Hawaii. 'Estate-grown' means that everything is controlled from beginning to end to ensure absolute quality. The beans are hand-picked, sun-dried, and always pesticide-free. And, each week, we'll roast your beans to order and ship them immediately from our home in California to yours. Here's how it works: We will be roasting every week here in Southen CA. After assuring your beans are roasted to perfection, we will personally package and deliver them to you, often still warm from the roaster. Personally roasting the beans for your enjoyment. Orders received the day of roasting will be filled pending fresh supply. Otherwise your coffee will be roasted fresh the following week. Get your orders in soon as our next roast is just a few days away!
