Koa Coffee from Hawaii

13 Jan


My brother Bill discovered this brand of gourmet Kona coffee while touring the Hawaiian Islands. The coffee left an impression on him and he thoughtfully gifted his siblings with the java beans for Christmas 2008. We have really been enjoying the smooth flavor of these superior beans. When it comes to coffee, the beans from the Kona region are truly the Big Kahuna.

Our plantation is a family owned and operated business that was established in 1997 and continues to grow each year. We are located in the small town of Captain Cook and situated on the slopes of the Hawaiian volcano, Mauna Loa, at the ideal elevation of 2,500 ft.

Because of the high elevation, sun drenched mornings, cloud covered afternoons and abundant rainfall, our coffee beans mature more slowly. This enables them to obtain a large size and a superb grade.

Our vertically integrated farm allows us to control the quality of our Kona Coffee from the cherry hand picking to milling. We have a state-of-the-art wet mill facility from Colombia, a dry mill from Brazil and our entire parchment/green bean is temperature and humidity controlled.

Koa Coffee Plantation takes its name from street name of the farm location, Koa Road. Koa is also a native tree of Hawaii. This traditional wood is known not only for its strength and durability but also for its beauty.


Because Koa trees grow in areas that were once lava fields, it is thought that this has contributed to the beautiful golden reddish wood color. Like Koa wood, we are dedicated to working to become an integral part of the essense of Hawaii. We are strongly dedicated to offering our customer’s the finest coffee experience while also sharing some of the beauty and aloha that comes from the Hawaiian Islands.
