Intro to coffee-from harvest to roast
I thought I might add this useful introduction to coffee from harvest to roasting, with explanations and pics - from one of the many Kona coffee producers in Hawaii.
Aina na Hoku Kai Farm is our home and the source of CuppaKona Coffee. It consists of eight acres of fertile land in the Kona district of the island of Hawaii. We share this land with our one acre coffee orchard, wet and dry mill facility, traditional rolling roof (Hoshidana) coffee drying deck, vegetable gardens, numerous tropical fruit trees and plants, 3 Hereford heifers, many wild chickens, three (mostly) feral cats, and a dog. We are located at an elevation of 1,500 feet, which provides the right balance of rain, sun, gentle breezes, and temperatures to grow great coffee.
Welcome to CuppaKona. Your source for estate-grown and processed 100 percent Kona Coffee.
