I awoke early this morning pondering coffee. I do that a lot. I knew pretty much all the tropical places where coffee comes from and where coffee came from originally but I wondered about the word, COFFEE. And then, after I had my morning cup of 100% Kona coffee, I remembered. My brain runs on coffee.
In case you wonder where the word coffee comes from here’s a quick primer. The original Arabic description of coffee was “Qahhwat al-bun” or “wine of the bean.” I think that says it all. I’d like a cup of wine of the bean, please. Alas, this rather long description was later shortened by the Arabs to the name, “qahwa.” This Arabic name was then borrowed by the Turks, who called that wonderful elixir “kahve.” Aha! Starting to sound recognizable, huh? The Dutch named it “koffie” and through the English, because they never seem to pronounce anything correctly, it became “coffee.” At least the Brits didn’t put a “u” in it…like flavour.
The Kona Cowboy Coffee Company is proud to provide the finest coffee available to enjoy by the cup. And you can probably pronounce most of the names. You’ll get a great cup of Joe with PANIOLA 100% Kona Cowboy Coffee, grown on Hawaiian volcanoes and roasted in the Rocky Mountains … the one with no bitter aftertaste and no acidity. CAFÉ PINON de Nuevo Mexico is the Southwest’s favorite with pinion nuts and a perfect way to improve your coffee experience during the day. And our MOKA-JAVA is a medium dark roasted blend of Indonesian and Ethiopian coffees that just might be high octane! We also make COWBOY ACTION COFFEE, the Official Coffee of the Single Action Shooting Society! If you are a Chai drinker, you’ll love the Coconut or Mango Spiced Chai we bring in from Honolulu.
