STAGE 5: ROASTING

The coffee that arrives at the roaster is referred to as green coffee. The seeds are much smaller after they are roasted. The roasting process involves are enclosed, rotating metal drum usually heated by direct gas flame. Coffee is dropped into the hot drum and roasted into the beans we all know and love.

From here the coffee is packaged fresh and shipped around the world to your doorstep!

Farm to Cup process | STAGE 4: WET MILLING & DRYING

After the coffee is picked it’s brought to our wet mill. Here, the cherries are cleaned, then pulled separating the seeds from the outer skin. The seeds are then placed in a water bath to ferment for about 15 hours.

Following these steps, they need to be dried! Drying can occur using industrial dryers that can dry up to 9,000 pounds at a time or large drying patios. After drying, the outer shell will be dry and brittle called parchment; which provides additional protection from the elements and is left in the bean until it is sent out to be roasted.

After we remove this layer, the beans are about 20% lighter and we sort them by size, density and color before bagging them into burlap sacks to be roasted.

Swipe to see the cherries arrive at the wet mill! 👉🏼

STAGE 3: PICKING

Our manager of the farm does an excellent job teaching proper protocol and technique on ensuring we’re picking the highest quality cherries for harvest.

It’s not uncommon to have blossoms, green and red cherries all on the same branch! We have to have MANY rounds of picking and harvesting our cherries. That’s also a main reason why we are small-batched focused business, to ensure you’re getting the highest quality straight from our farm.

The average picker picks from 200-300 pounds in an 8 hour day and it takes 10 pounds to produce 1 pound of roasted coffee.

If you swipe right, you can see the different stages of cherries, from green, almost ripe, to perfect and ready to pick!

STAGE 2: PLANTING / GROWTHWe started our first planting 1998, our first 20 acres and we’ve only grown since - now having...

STAGE 2: PLANTING / GROWTH

We started our first planting 1998, our first 20 acres and we’ve only grown since - now having over 150 acres! Swipe to see our newest planting of 10,000 trees 👉🏼

Once planted, flowers will bloom and are ready to produce 3 years after the seedling process. Once the flower blossoms, we know that in a few months the fruit will be ready to start picking!

In Hawaii we expect our “kona snow”, the flowering of the Kona coffee trees in March & April. The white flowers consume the branches that resemble snow covered trees! Small green cherries develop from the pollinated flowers and grow into ripe red cherries in a few months.

It’s common for a tree to have blossoms, green and red cherries in the same branch, especially early in the season. To ensure quality, all of our coffee is handpicked.

We’re going to take you through the process from the Farm to your Cup! The next few posts are dedicated to each stage of the process. Follow along! 🤙🏽

STAGE ONE: Seedlings.

Coffee always starts with a seedling - did you know that a coffee tree’s peak production is about 3 years after the seedling has been planted and pruned?

After the roots have been established, trees will be routinely pruned to ensure maximum production; large amounts of trees in select locations are pruned all but one strong stem which usually prevents them from producing that year.

This technique allows trees to reset and produce new growth and a more bountiful harvest. Our many years on the farm have enabled us to have maximum rotation & allowing us to increase production while caring for our trees.

We now have over 250 acres and we just recently planted 10,000 NEW TREES on our farm!

Benjamin Fulford 11-30-20… “Troops Rally Around Trump as Final Showdown Begins” Posted on November 30, 2020 by kauilapele New weekly report from Ben. Pretty informative message this week, as the BF eyes appear to be more “open to the multi-D aspects” of the Alliance operation.
I just opened a bag of Medium Roast that I ordered. There is nothing like it. It's not just that it's Kona Coffee. It is such good Kona Coffee. Malia Bolton you made my morning amazing.

Art4Moore Parent Teacher Shopping Spree wants to thank Kona Coffee & Tea for their ongoing and wonderful support over the last 4 years! They are the place to be!
On the coldest day, we’ve had in some time, our shipment of Kona Coffee was very much welcome. Mahalo for the warm thoughts and the fabulous coffee.
Mahalo for shipping our coffee so quickly. It was almost as pleasant of a surprise as Hurricane Florence bypassing us.
Ever seen a fictionalized film about the segregated coffee fields of 1920s Hawaii? If not, then now is your chance. Running for Grace is the sweeping romantic tale of a young man falling for the daughter of a family he works for while trying to prove himself as a doctor. This spectacle of a film is playing at the Regal Makalapua Stadium in Kona this week. Tickets available now! https://regmovi.es/2zKzN3B
Anyone out there looking for a movie to check out this weekend, Running from Grace will be premiering at the Regal Cinemas Makalapua 10 tomorrow (July 18) at 7:30! I got a chance to check the movie out, and I really liked it. It's very heartwarming. If you can't make it out tomorrow I'm pretty sure the film will continue showing at the same theater. Here's the link for tickets: https://regmovi.es/2zKzN3B and here's a link to the trailer as well: http://bit.ly/2KXw3jR
