Wishing you were drinking coffee in Hawaii this morning? Me too.
Instead, I am grabbing a fast cup of coffee and heading to work.
Instead of moping, I found some small coffee growers in Hawaii that have shops on Etsy.
These are small farms and you are buying directly from the farmer.
First one is from Moukulele Farms
From their Etsy About page:
A family farm producing 100% Kona Coffee and handmade chocolates
We purchased a very run down farm in 2005. Since that time we have planted nearly 4,000 coffee trees, 50 cacao trees and cared for the 30 macadamia nuts trees that were horribly overgrown. We now produce award winning 100% estate Kona coffee as well as dehydrated mac nuts and handmade artisan chocolates.
We have added two catchment tanks to collect and store rain water for use in irrigation. We raise chickens to eat the bugs which allows us to farm organically. We have large trees on the property providing shade and habitat for native birds.
In 2013 our coffee won the chef’s award at the international Kona Coffee Festival. Every bag of coffee that we sell has been planted, harvested, pulped, dried, milled and roasted by us on our farm. It is a labor of love.
This is a link to their website: Mokulele Farms
The next small farm I found on Etsy was Wolfpack Farms Coffee
From their website:
Wolfpack Farms is a 5 acre coffee farm on the slopes of Hualalai. Long ago these lands were known as the Kamehameha Farmlands. Our coffee is grown at a 2000 foot elevation in the heart of the prime Kona region.
Please let me know if you have tried either of these coffees or if you know of more small coffee farms in Hawaii you would like to see added to this post.
