Why The Quality of Your Coffee Matters
Not All Coffee Is Created Equal. Especially When It Comes To Your Health.
Over 97% of the coffee worldwide is considered to be “commercial coffee”. It’s produced on a mass scale in large factory farms, with the primary goal of minimizing cost and maximizing yield.
If you’re looking to maximize the health benefits of a beverage you likely drink every day, multiple times a day, commercial coffee might not be the best choice.
Commercial coffee often contains:
- Mold and mycotoxins
- Pre-ground beans that are more susceptible to oxygen exposure, leading to a stale, flavorless coffee
Don’t get us wrong. Commercial coffee serves a place if you’re simply looking for a cost-effective caffeinated vehicle for cream, sugar, and mocha-choca-latte flavoring.
But we think you deserve better than that.
It's Time to Elevate Your Daily Grind With a Better Brew
At Kion, we’re die-hard coffee lovers. We love the taste, the aroma, the mental buzz, and the cultural experience of coffee.
But we also care about our health.
So we went on a mission to craft a coffee we could feel good about—and look forward to—drinking every day.
Enter Kion Coffee: A brew designed to taste good, and make you feel even better.
Kion Coffee is in the top 3% of all coffee grown worldwide that can claim to be “specialty grade”. Put simply, it's the very best coffee the world has to offer.
Specialty coffee is also as transparent as you can get: The cooperative where the beans are sourced, the date of the harvest, and the varietal of the beans are all traceable.
For perspective, let’s compare specialty grade coffee to the other 97% of coffees. Commercial coffee is like blending together different grapes from different countries, dying it red, fermenting it to make alcohol, and calling it “Red Wine”.
Specialty coffee, on the other hand, is like drinking a vintage wine from a single estate in Tuscany.
Our coffee is also USDA Certified Organic, a standard that’s only met by 3% of all coffees worldwide. To ensure maximum quality, Kion Coffee beans are tested by an accredited global organization to ensure they are free from:
- Mold and mycotoxins (specifically Ochratoxin A and Aflatoxin)
You can rest assured that Kion Coffee is pure, free of contaminants, and grown in a way that supports your health and the planet’s.
Kion Coffee beans are only sourced from farms that meet the highest standards for ethical and sustainable farming practices. Our farmers are ensured safety, ethical treatment, and fair pay.
Roasted to Maximize Health and Flavor
Kion Coffee is roasted to a medium level to both preserve naturally occurring antioxidants and reduce the formation of acrylamides. Thus, the medium roast allows us to maximize health benefits and taste, while reducing any potentially harmful chemicals.
Each batch is roasted by experts using the world’s most efficient and environmentally-friendly “smokeless” roaster. Our roastmasters also personally taste every batch of Kion Coffee, making sure each is just as good as the last.
The result is a medium roast coffee with maximum health benefits and unparalleled, consistent flavor in every cup.
And for you coffee nerds, you can expect Kion Coffee to have a pure, rich flavor with notes of caramel, roasted nuts, and subtle hints of fruit.
Packaged for Freshness
Virtually every food will eventually oxidize or spoil, and coffee is no exception. When coffee beans are packaged improperly and left exposed to oxygen, the natural antioxidant levels, flavor, and aroma all decrease.
And what good is high-quality coffee if it arrives at your doorstep stale and bland?
We use the industry’s highest-standard packaging method to ensure the healthiest, freshest coffee possible. Nitrogen-flushed bags prevent oxygen from harming the delicate oils and nutrients in our coffee. Then we rush-ship it to you so you can enjoy it well within the window that maximizes the health potential of the coffee.
Kion Coffee is guaranteed to be as fresh the day you open it as it was the day it was roasted.
How to Best Enjoy Kion Coffee
While the quality of your coffee is important, proper storage and brewing methods also have a huge impact on its taste and health benefits. Here are some tips for getting the most bang-for-your-buck in each cup.
One of the biggest mistakes coffee drinkers make is not storing their coffee in a way that maintains freshness and flavor. Coffee beans are very absorbent, so it’s best to store them away from:
- Direct sunlight
Store your fresh, whole coffee beans in an opaque, airtight container in a dark place away from moisture or other odors. For more detailed instructions, see this post.
Your exact process will depend on what brewing method you’re using. For more detailed instructions on different brewing setups, check out this article.
In general, here are some guidelines to follow:
- Grind your coffee within 15 minutes of brewing. This ensures the best flavor and maximum health benefits, as coffee begins to stale and oxidize as soon as it's been ground.
- Determine the grind you need based on your brewing method. Slower brewing methods like a French press require coarser grinds, while faster brewing methods like espresso use finer grinds. A good rule of thumb: If the coffee tastes bitter, use a coarser grind; if the coffee tastes sour, use a finer grind.
- Use clean, filtered water. Heat it to between 195-205 degrees, just below boiling.
- Use the appropriate coffee-to-water ratio for your brewing method. The standard ratio is 1:16, and adjusting it will give you either weaker or stronger coffee.
- Preheat your mug. Simply add some hot water to your mug before you add your coffee So the mug doesn’t suck the heat out of your java.
- Take care of your equipment. Keep it clean and dry when not in use.
Sip, and enjoy!

Ingredients & Label
Kion Coffee is whole bean, and needs to be ground prior to brewing.
Each bag of Kion Coffee provides 12 oz. of whole bean coffee. On average, that will make ~70 tablespoons of ground coffee, and ~25-35 8oz. cups of brewed coffee, depending on personal brew and grind size preference.
Kion Coffee is a medium roast. The flavor profile can be described as very clean, naturally sweet, rich and complex. It contains notes of caramel, toasted nuts, and subtle hints of fruit.
We seal all Kion Coffee with a nitrogen flush 24-48 hours after roasting. Due to our quality packaging and rush delivery, your coffee will arrive as fresh as the day it was roasted.
Kion coffee comes from a handful of small producers in Mexico and Central America. We have a great relationship with the farmers and co-ops, and are confident they meet all of our selection criteria for the highest quality green coffee beans.
Our coffee is roasted in the United States at two different roasting facilities.
We do not have a decaf Kion Coffee at this time, but are hoping to release a decaf version by 2021.
