“KONA” name

Only coffee grown in the North and South districts of Kona may use the geographic designation of Kona. The KCFA feels that the use of the word “Kona” in a 10% Kona Blend (90% of which is non-Kona) is abusive.  There are no Federal regulations protecting Kona Coffee.  Anyone outside of Hawaii can use the word “Kona” as they wish- e.g. Kona cream gum.
