The Naked Truth about 100% Kona Coffee

Eleven female Hawaiian farmers have posed nude demurely for a calendar to promote the pricey Kona coffee bean, project organizers say.

Project leader Mary Lou Moss said the nude calendar featuring Kona Coffee Farmers Association farmers, who are all more than 50 years old, is meant to support legislation being considered by the Hawai'i Legislature, the Honolulu Star-Bulletin reported Sunday. Moss said the measure would require all coffee labeled Kona to contain beans grown on the western side of the Big Island.

The legislation came about after Kona growers complained other coffee companies used the Kona name despite including as little as 10 percent of the beans in their blends.
