Fields of Coffee

Two words that are well-known bffs are Kona and coffee. Today’s fields of Hawaii photo is of a Kona coffee farm on the Big Island of Hawaii. When you visit, you can find plenty of free coffee farm tours and tastings.

Kona Coast Coffee Farm

Kona coffee is considered to be among the best coffees in the world. What makes it special? As the Kona Coffee Council says,

Rocky volcano slopes nurture it.
Sun-drenched mornings ripen it.
Misty afternoons refresh it.
Six hundred farmers meticulously handpick it.

Though not as famous, you’ll also find coffee fields on Molokai, Kauai, and Oahu.

  1. Hi Sheila,Did you hear that Rusty’s Hawaiian Coffee of Kau won first place in the islands. It knocked Kona off it’s perch. In fact I believe that a Kauai coffee took second place. I’ve got to find that Rusty’s as I just love kona and can’t imagine what Rusty’s must taste like. Anyway here’s a site you can go to if you want to read more about it.

    1. Karen – those are some very interesting results. To me, it really doesn’t matter what part of Hawaii my coffee was grown as long as it was grown in Hawaii. šŸ™‚

      When we go to Walmart, we like to look for Kauai Coffee. It’s about the only Hawaii-grown coffee we can readily find in North Carolina. It’s actually a bit cheaper than Kona coffee and tastes great to us.

  2. As fans of Kona coffee, we are watching the development of Ka’u coffee and are looking forward to enjoying Rusty’s given all the buzz. Kona Rainforest took top honors at the Kona festival 2012. It is very special given that it is a much loved organic farm, and located deeper into south Kona.
    Coffee is a natural product and varies from year to year as does the finer aspects of the weather. This is good because different farms get to shine each year. Many farms in Kona have had a good harvest 2012, it will be interesting to see what the trees produce for 2013. We have loved to visit Pele Plantations in Honaunau.
    We can’t wait to get back and tour more farms.
