Kona Coffee...Is there a similar tasting coffee that doesn't have a price tag fitting of gold?

I just purchased a french press for my boyfriend as one of his Christmas presents, and would like to buy him some coffee to go along with the press. I am a non-coffee drinker who knows nothing about coffee, but I have heard him mention on a few occasions that he enjoys Kona/Kona blends, though he seems to drink other flavors too. Since Kona is so expensive, I'm wondering if there was a Kona-like coffee that was less taxing on my wallet which I could purchase. Does anyone have any suggestions for either specific coffee "flavors" or at least what genre of coffee I should be looking into?

Oh, and it should be noted...when he usually drinking Kona it is from Wawa, a local convenience store that has decent, though definitely not high-quality beverages. So, I think it is safe to say that whatever they are passing off as Kona likely is not 100% (or frankly even any %) pure Kona Mountain Estate coffee. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
