What makes Kona Coffee different from other coffees in the world

Many people come to Kona, and are suprised to discover the unique qualities of the coffee grown here.  Kona Coffee has a distinct low acidity and flavor profile that can not be replicated by other coffee growing regions.   Even Island to island the unique smoothness of Kona Coffee is unrivaled.  A variety of environmental attributes are responsible for Kona Coffee's amazing quality and flavor.  It starts with the rich volcanic soils on the Western slopes of Hualalai and Mauna Loa.  This extremely well draining and rich soil have taken thousands of years to become what they are today.

Going to be another great harvest this year!

We dont like to brag but we do it anyway.  Our coffee trees are perfect in every way.  No one spoils their trees like we do.  We know that exceptional coffee starts with healthy trees and big ripe red cherries.  What starts as a seedling ends with your morning cup.  At every step we make sure to give the trees exactly what they need and want.  Our trees are absolutely loaded this year, and we are excited for this coming harvest.  Small batch fresh roasted coffee is just a facet of what we do.

We have received our third Chefs Choice Award

It is our absolute honor to recieve the Chefs Choice award for the third time.  We work very hard to win over the chefs of the Kona Coffee belt.  Its safe to say that the chefs who decide on this award have a very refined pallet and are surrounded by amazing Kona Coffee every day.  To make the cut and recieve their five star award means a lot to us.  Thank you for your participation in the Kona Coffee Festival's Coffee and Art Stroll, and making us yet again a 5 star Coffee.

Much Love and Aloha

The Best Organic Kona Coffee

Did you know that Coffee is one of the most heavily herbicided crops in the world?  Did you know there are a wide variety of pests that attack and ruin the coffee bean?  Did you know that there are over 3000 beans in an average pound of coffee and that 1500 cherries need to be hand picked for each pound?  Probably not unless you are in the coffee business.  From its raw state on the tree, coffee cherry takes a ridiculous amount of labor and processing to produce your morning cup.

We have taken organic and included habitat in the mix. We are now a certified butterfly sanctuary

Aloha!!!    We all love to eat organic.  We all love organic coffee.   But even organic agriculture can have a devastating effect on members of our environment if extra precautions and measures are not taken to ensure that the use of organic persticides and fertilizers don't harm unitended organisms.  Butterflies and Bees are what scientist call indicator species.  When present bees and butterflies denote a healthy ecosystem.  Butterflies and Bees are also some of the first unintended victims of incorrect pesticide use.  Butterflies and Bees are everywhere on our farm.
