Coffee in Hawaii

         Coffee is grown on almost all the Hawaiian Islands, with many farms dating back to the 1800′s.  This photo I took of ripening cherries on a coffee shrub was right off the highway going holo holo circling the island along the Kona mountain slopes. Many farms are still owned by 5th generation families. If you are on the island the week of Nov. 3-11, 2012,  take part in the Kona Coffee Festival:  parade,  cupping competition,  Kona Coffee Recipe contest and a picking contest .                 konacoffeefest.com                 konacupping.com

  Fresh roasted coffee beans direct from farms can be purchased to take home or enjoyed  along the way. Look for 100%.

           The district of Ka’u has produced coffee of exceptional quality. The newly opened Ka’u Coffee Mill gives you a taste of the award winning coffee and see the process of  beans drying to roasting.       kaucoffeemill.com

Hawai’i coffee growers take pride in their unique beans and continue the romance and tradition of the coffee industry.
