Just back from the roaster! 12 lbs. of medium roast and 12 lbs. of dark roast! Great coffee in the morning!!
Shipping estimates right now are that shipments must be in the mail by December 17, 2021 to get there before Christmas. Our last shipment to the mainland arrived three days later using USPS. (That surprised us.)
There is still time to get your Christmas order in and shipped on time! Kona coffee makes a great gift to those who love coffee!!
Picking and pulping!
Our pickers pulled in about 600 lbs. of cherry yesterday. Farmer Sammi began pulping late in the afternoon. She will be at it all day today. The coffee beans look excellent! All the rain this season has produced huge beans!
It is time to place your Christmas orders. The way shipping is working these days you can never be too early to order. Farmer Sammi will include a personal note with each order!
It is harvest time. The coffee cherries look great
Good looking beans before parchment and sorting.
Even though I am still in Shanghai China, I can enjoy a great cup of Kona Sunset coffee. It can be shipped almost anywhere in the world! 48 days and I am out of here! Going back to the island to enjoy sunsets, great coffee, riding my BMW R1200gs, beaches and more!
Beautiful sunsets! Beautiful beaches. There is a lot to see on the big island of Hawaii. Farmer Sammi and Lili (the dog) take care of everything on the farm. Contact Sammi for a tour. She will show you how coffee is grown and processed. You can even see the pineapples and many, many, many native flow
Come to the Big Island of Hawaii and experience the most fantastic sunsets!
Shipping out new coffee flavors. My favorite is Chocolate Macadamia Nut!
It has been raining a lot in Holualoa! Lots of muddy fields (and muddy dog, Lili) to deal with. But the coffee cherries are huge! It won’t be long until harvest season!!
It has been raining a lot in Kona!. The trees in the upper field are pruned and looking good. When the trees bloom it looks snow is falling. They call it “Kona Snow.”
This sure beats Shanghai!
It is time to prune the coffee trees to get ready for the growing season. Unfortunately, the chipper has a busted bearing.
This is why our coffee is called Kona Sunset Coffee! Kilauea is erupting again. the emissions make for some beautiful sunsets!
Here is the new Kona coffee! Chocolate Macadamia Nut Flavored Kona coffee. Ready to ship
This is why it is call Kona Sunset Coffee. Every clear night on the farm you see a sunset like this. That is Lili in the foreground. She is the newest member to join the farm.
The coffee beans are bigger than ever because of all the rain in Holualoa this year. Picking and processing is well underway! You can place your order for Christmas coffee anytime. Sammi will make sure it gets shipped right away.
It is a long story how we got to Hawaii. I will save that for another post.
We have been on the Big Island for a little over a year. My wife brought in our first crop this fall. Here is our coffee label!
I have been away a long time. I have been living and working in Shanghai for the last five years. Lots of changes since my last post. The wood shop is gone. We sold our home and moved to Holualoa, Hawaii. We are on the Big Island about 3 miles up the mountain from Kona. We purchased a small coffee farm and my wife is working the farm while I finish my time in Shanghai. Look for Kona Sunset Coffee this fall!
Just after Christmas, I took a job in Shanghai China. I probably won’t be doing any woodworking for a while. I will be back! (In a few years)
