Journeys of Discovery: Kona coffee is a region, not a flavor

Correspondent Tom Wilmer visits Greenwell Farms on the island of Hawaii to discover the world of Kona coffee and the art of cupping.

Only coffee beans grown in the Kona District on the Big Island can claim the title Kona coffee. The identical bean grown on Kauai or Maui, for example, cannot legally be called Kona coffee.
