An unspoiled land, sunny climate and misty afternoons give Ka‘u coffee its characteristic deep flavors. One esteemed coffee taster described a special Ka‘u coffee as "the taste of chocolate, cherry, and coconut, accented with floral notes of orchid and citrus flowers." Unique cultivating practices including hand picking, sun drying, warm sunny mornings and misty afternoon rains and fertile volcanic soils combine with the passion and aloha of Ka‘u farmers to produce some of the finest coffees grown anywhere.
We urge you to attend the ho‘olaule‘a and visit the farmers. Take part in the Ka‘u Coffee Experience to sample coffees from many Ka‘u coffee farms brewed by expert baristas.
Get to know the Ka‘u coffee farmers who banded together to form the Ka‘u Coffee Growers Cooperative years ago and started the Ka‘u Coffee Festival in 2009.
