About Real Kona Coffee
The “Kona Coffee Belt” on the Big Island of Hawaii has possibly the finest coffee growing conditions in the world. Just the right amount of sunshine, rain, and deep rich volcanic soil makes Real Kona Coffee taste unique, delicious, and smooth, no matter how strong it is brewed.
Our farms sit on the side of Hualalai Volcano at prime growing elevations. Our beans are hand picked, sun dried, and roasted in small batches. We are a small “farm to cup” operation where we are hands on in all stages of growing and processing.
What is “Estate” coffee?
When we refer to our Mauka and Makai “estates” we are referring to specific farms, one at a high altitude on the slopes of the volcano, Mauka; the other lower, closer to the ocean, Makai. An estate coffee is grown on one farm and picked, dried, milled and roasted separately, never combined with product from another location. This gives us the perfect way to control the quality and flavor of our unique Kona coffees.
Our farms receive constant care and attention to ensure healthy plants that will produce the highest quality coffee. We take pride in our sustainable green farming practices and efficient processing techniques which allow us to provide our customers with the best possible product.
The ideal elevations and tropical climate of our farms produce coffee that we are proud to call “Real Kona Coffee.” Arabica coffee was introduced to the Big Island of Hawaii from Central America in the late 1800’s. The plant evolved into a unique coffee variety known as Kona typica which experts recognize as some of the world’s finest coffee. With farm direct shipping the coffee will be as fresh as possible.

HAWAII-GROWN COFFEE LAW
This law aims to protect Hawaiian coffees from being misrepresented in blends. It mandates that if a Hawaiian coffee is used in a blend and the coffee is named on the package (i.e. “Kona coffee”), then the package must represent the coffee accurately. The blend must contain a minimum of 10% (by weight) of the origin named, the label must clearly state the percentage, and the size of the font on the label must adhere to specific guidelines. For complete details and a full written description of the law, please read HRS Chapter 486-120.6.
