Copy of Coffee

At Aloha Farms Hawaii, we strongly believe that our commitment to sustainable coffee agriculture combined with regenerative beekeeping inspires and creates product excellence. We are pride to offer the finest artisan-made products available from the Big Island of Hawaii, including award winning coffee, crunchy and buttery macadamia nuts, exotic and rare honey and the purest sea salts from the island of Molokai.
Each time you purchase an Aloha Farms Hawaii product, you support sustainable efforts in coffee cultivation and macadamia nut forestry, and honeybee stewardship in Hawaii. Our eco-friendly methods are directly sowing the seeds for a sustainable future in products that are pure, natural and organic.
Aloha Farms first farm was established in 1953, located on the Mount Hualalai portion of the Big Island of Hawaii. All of our farms are located under the tropical terrain of the active Mount Hualalai/Mauna Loa volcano, where our coffee fields thrive. Natural and organic, the rich volcanic soil allows us to harvest the rarest and finest award winning Kona and Ka’u coffee in perfect growing conditions.
The Kona Arabica coffee cherries are succulent, plump and have a natural sweetness that only can be found in Hawaii. The coffee from Aloha Farms are all hand-picked and processed to customer grade specifications using Laser tagging sorting to yield only optimum and traceable coffee beans.
Aloha Farms Hawaii also roasts coffee beans to the optimum level to bring out the fullest taste profile. Our medium roasted coffee was cupped in 2017 to a high score of 85.75 (Verve Coffee Roasters) and 87.00 (out of 100).

Introduction of Coffee in Hawaii:

Hawai’i is the only state in the United States able to grow coffee plants commercially.  The first known record of coffee in Hawai'i is dated January 21, 1813, when planted coffee seedlings arrived on the island of Oahu. Later a gardener who came on HMS Blonde in 1825 under Captain Lord Byron, brought coffee plants from Brazil, and was provided land in the Mānoa Valley on O'ahu for its cultivation.

The "coffee belt" in Kona is located on the Big Island of Hawaii and is approximately two miles wide from 700 feet (210m) to 3,000 feet (914m) elevation. Other notable award winning districts on the island where coffee is grown include Kaʻū in the far south and Puna in the southeast.

Although coffee can be harvested year-round in Hawaii, highest production begins in late summer and extends to early spring.  A total of about 7,800 acres are planted with coffee throughout the state. A little over half the acreage is outside the island of Hawaii, in particular on the island of Kauai, indicating that farms on other islands are larger in average size compared to those on the island of Hawaii.
