Ever been to the Big Island of Hawaii?
If so, chances are you've been in our neighborhood.
Our coffee farms are in the Ka'u District, the southern side of the island that's home to some of Hawaii's popular attractions: the Green Sand Beach near Ka Lae, the Punalu'u Black Sand Beach, and the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
Amidst this rural landscape, we tend 30 coffee farms, also known as estates. You'll find our family-owned farms on the slopes of the Mauna Loa volcano, where rich soil, ample sunshine and daily rains help create some of the world's best coffee.
How good is it? Check out our results at the Specialty Coffee Association of America's international competitions:
- In 2007, two of our estates captured 6th and 9th place in the Roaster's Guild Cupping Pavilion Competition. Also, seven estates from our cooperative ranked in the SCAA's top 10 Hawaii/Asia/Indonesia regional competition.
- In 2008, another of our estates came in 11th in the Roaster's Guild Coffee of the Year competition.
- In 2009, yet another Ka‘u estate placed 7th in the Roaster's Guild Coffee of the Year competition.
We believe in preserving American agriculture and are pleased to share our coffee in a farm-to-cup experience. We pick our coffee by hand, process and dry it in the sun, then roast it. We ship our roasted products directly to you.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. If you're a coffee geek who wants more technical information or a retailer who'd like to serve Ka'u coffee, please visit our wholesale page.
