Story

There was a time when coffee was grown all over Hawaii Island. Today, coffee growing is centered in the island’s Kona region. Kona is home to hundreds of coffee farms. Its high elevation, volcanic soil and ever-present cloud cover make it ideally suited for growing high quality coffee.

Situated on rich Mauna Loa volcanic soil and watered by warm tropical mists, the beans found in our Kona Fancy coffee ripen slowly, helping to capture the light airy essence of the land. Farmers pride themselves on a traditional hands-on approach to every aspect of growing and processing, ensuring that every one of their beans is treated with love and care. The result is a remarkably well-balanced coffee.

Makapueo Farm is family owned and operated, and strives to preserve the legacy of a 100% Hawaiian managed farm. Betsy Astronomo passed down the farm to her daughter, Mamo. Mamo planted the majority of the existing coffee and tended to the plants. In 2003, Mamo’s son, Kaipo Sheen, the current farm owner and manager, returned to restore and grow Makapueo Farm. Because other local farmers needed support, Kaipo established a cooperative, as well as programs for farmers to learn about techniques and quality control. The farm conserves water and uses natural fertilizers.

Kona Extra Fancy
I was optimistic this would be a special product. And while it is good, I just don't think it is great or worth the added cost. There are plenty of other varietals out there that deliver for a fraction of the cost. Having said that, in temrs of Kona coffees, this one is REALLY good.
