About Our Coffee

An original Kona-Typica Arabica coffee tree, planted directly into lava rock on the slopes of the Mauna Loa volcano over a century ago. It is just one of the many trees like it on our historical farm.

Recognized as one of the rarest and most sought after coffees in the world, 100% Kona coffee truly is one of life's little luxuries. Only coffee grown in the districts of North and South Kona Hawaii, an area of approximately 25 miles by 2 miles, may be labeled "100% Kona coffee". This very limited area sits on the western slopes of the Mauna Loa volcano and enjoys perfect coffee growing weather. Rarer still are award-winning coffees selected from hundreds of farms in Kona by judges and peers alike.

Many of the Kona-Typica coffee trees on our farm are over a century old and have been tended to by hand for generations, making them some of the original trees that helped to make Kona Coffee world famous.

We are a single-estate farm at 1,350' elevation that only uses all-natural methods as nature intended. Many of the Kona-Typica coffee trees on our farm are over a century old and have been tended to by hand for generations, making them some of the original trees that helped to make Kona coffee world famous.

We continue that tradition today, picking only the ripest cherries by hand, sun-drying and fresh roasting our world-class, award-winning 100% Kona coffee before shipping directly to you. Our focus on quality over quantity produces some of the finest coffee in the world.

About Our Coffee

  • All of our coffee is from our single-estate farm in Captain Cook, Hawaii within the district of South Kona.

  • We only select the ripest, reddest cherries which is more labor intensive.

  • Once harvested, we wet-process our coffee and sun-dry the beans. This takes longer and requires significantly more labor but nothing worth doing is easy and this pays off in overall quality.
  • After the coffee is dried, it is milled to remove the remaining parchment and is then sorted by Hawaiian standard grades. At this point, the beans are known as "green" coffee and ready for resting.

  • Quality cannot be rushed and our beans are rested for a minimum of three months before roasting.

  • To ensure even roasting, the rested green coffee is roasted by individual grade.

  • We roast, pack and ship all subscription orders with the goal of getting coffee to customers at or close to the 1st of each month. Individual orders are roasted and shipped within 1-2 business days.

  • It takes about 3 to 5 days for coffee to develop to it's potential after roasting which means your coffee should be ready for brewing by the time it arrives.

  • Look for our "roasted on" date stamp with each order!
