Fear not we have already started harvesting cherry

We have recieved a lot of emails from people wanting to know when we will have coffee again..  And it looks like early september we will be roasting and mailing orders again.  We realize running out of coffee has had many adverse affects on your life and we are working tirelessly to expand our production and see to it that those rash yelling episodes  and 2 oclock headaches are avoided for good...  we would urge anyone that wishes to recieve our coffee all year sign up for the coffee club.  Your automatically billed via pay pal and we send you your coffee monthly...

Growing Kona coffee with integrity for the Aina

              Duncan Trussel once said "Hawaii is perhaps gods elbow peaking out of the pacific giving us a glimpse of what lies beyond the viel of this life.. ".  Aloha Aina meaning "Love of the Land"  is intrinsic to the culture and well being of the hawaiian islands.  In the past the sustainability of the land was ensured by the Konohiki and Kapuna that would oversee the resources of the land and impose various limitations in fishing or agriculture to ensure malama aina meaning "respect of the land".

Try our Mauka single estate organic Coffee

As many of you know we are all sold out of our bean in all grades and blends...  However we still have 100lbs. of the mauka farms coffee available.  This is the coffee we blend with our home farm to create the award winning mauka makai blend.  It is our first year selling from this farm which is 1400 ft higher elevation than ours and is lovingly managed and tended using the same organic agricultural techniques that we use on our farm.  Dont be shy to give it a try.  We drink it ourselves and it offers a slightly bolder flavor with more chocolatey notes.

Coffee Super Stardom has taken its toll... Sign up for our monthly coffee club while you still can

We are selling out fast.  Apparently winning every award at the Kona Coffee stroll is a big deal and we will be sold out of single estate by January if orders stay the same.  It is our hope that our regular customers will sign up for the monthly coffee club so that we may put aside bean for you and help to keep you drinking our award-sweeping coffee.  Being winners hasn't gone to our head.   We already knew we were the best.  It is putting a huge dent in our inventory, however, and the idea of our regular customers having to drink someone else's coffee is just saddening.

Ordering Kona Coffee For Christmas

There are a few things customers should keep in mind in regards to ordering Kona Coffee for freinds and family for Christmas.  Christmas is the busiest season for Kona Coffee orders. Many farms sell half their coffee in the months of November and December alone.  This means delays at the roaster and processers as well as delays in the mail.  If you are planning on getting our single estate Organic 100% Kona Coffee in time to put it under the tree, you will want to have your order in no later than December 7th.

What makes Kona Coffee Unique

Kona coffee has long been cherished by world coffee connoisseurs for its unique smooth flavor. It is a mix of Kona's ideal weather and volcanic soil composition that gives Kona coffee its flavor cherished by the people who drink it. Even though growing conditions are favorable here it takes more than the good weather to keep the soil here producing a favorable coffee. Excessive use of herbicides and chemical fertilizers compromise the soils vitality and in turn the quality of the coffee yeilding a product that is by no means unique.

We just won Chefs Choice award at the Kona Coffee and Art Stroll

Well we are super pleased that the chefs of the Kona Coffee Belt chose us as the winner of their five star coffee award. It is a huge accomplishment for us to be taking home awards our second year of participating in the Kona Coffee and Art Stroll. Quality is our biggest concern and to have the chefs' trained pallets approve and choose our coffee as the best is really amazing. It makes us very happy to bring you a coffee that is above and beyond the competition. Happy Holidays
