Hawaiian Kona is famous for being smooth, and for being the only coffee grown on United States soil. Our Extra-Fancy Kona, from Makapueo Farms has a medium body and a light, warm aftertaste. Makapueo Farms 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 majority of the existing coffee and tended to the plants. In 2002, Mamo unexpectedly passed away, and the farm began to deteriorate. 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. Makapueo Farm has grown by leaps and bounds, and has control of the entire process: the planting, harvesting and export. Enjoy!

The region where most of the coffee farms are concentrated is commonly referred to as the "coffee belt," which runs along Mamalahoa Highway. This highway cuts across the slopes of Hualalai and Mauna Loa from 300 to 800 meters above sea level. The Kona coffee belt lies on rich, uncultivated lands greatly influenced by the volcanoes that created the islands. Here, the soil contains nutrients necessary for the growth of coffee. In addition, the calm winds, moderate temperature, favorable amount of precipitation, and the temperature differences between night and day create an ideal environment for coffee cultivation.Whole Bean Coffee.
