Kapakauaokeola Farm is located two miles up from the Volcano Highway on the Mauka side of the District. From it, you can observe both Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea volcanoes. At the height of the sugar empire, these fields were abounding with cane. Its rich red soils provided the necessary nutrients to this voracious grass-related plant. After the demise of the Sugar Industry, the farm became pastureland for the small local cattle industry. The land lied fallow for three decades, allowing it to replenish itself with the help of its free-range residents.
All our coffee comes from only our farm, we don't bring in any coffee from other farms. And we do not blend it with any other coffee beans. It is 100% single origin estate Hawaiian coffee. Parchment is dropped off at our friend’s roasting facility, just 10 minutes away from our farm, who is a renowned award winning roaster in the community. They roast small batches, so none of their coffee gets shelved. They usually don’t go past a week or two between roasts.
