Kona Snow (Coffee Flowers)

A few months from New Years is when snow falls in Kona.
White lovely coffee flowers bloom in this season, and they are called “Kona Snow” because it looks like the snow fell and piled up on the branches of the coffee trees. The flowers have a sweet scent close to jasmine.
The fragility of this flower may be similar to that of a transient snow that wither and disappear in a few days, in a sense.
