Kona coffee labeling bills fall in state legislature

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Grocery store labels carrying the "Kona Coffee" designation won't be changing any time soon.

Current rules mandate coffee products contain just 10 percent of actual Kona coffee to receive the "Kona" label, an amount that has frustrated coffee farmers and consumers who feel the percentage isn't high enough.

Measures that would have changed that requirement to a higher percentage failed to make it out of the 2015 legislative session.
