A beetle infestation has caused a crisis for Kona coffee lovers around the world. Flavia coffee is no exception and will not have their popular Kona blend until further notice. We have a large supply at CoffeeASAP.com but once they are gone, they’re gone!
Here’s the official notice from Flavia:
Due to a supply issue in Kona, Hawaii, Mars Drinks will be out of stock of ALTERRA COFFEE ROASTERS
Kona Blend beginning the week of May 1, 2012.
According to the Kona Coffee Farmers Association
www.konacoffeefarmers.org, some Kona coffee farmers are still discovering a beetle infestation while others are reporting a total crop loss. As a result, Mars Drinks will be out of stock of ALTERRA COFFEE ROASTERS Kona Blend until further notice.
We will provide updates as more information becomes available. In the meantime, we recommend the placement of one of the other Medium and Balanced coffees to substitute for ALTERRA COFFEE ROASTERS Kona Blend in both base and new accounts.
