Coffees of Hawaii
All coffee from Hawaii is not created equal. Or rather, coffees from Hawaii all tastes different.
Coffee grows everywhere in Hawaii, but commercially on four of the islands - Hawaii (or Big Island), Ohau, Maui, and Kauai. No matter where the coffee is grown in Hawaii, it all boasts different tastes, because the taste of the coffee depends on the land that it is grown in.
On the Big Island there are distinct tasting coffees from the Kona, Hāmākua (where our Ninole coffee is grown), Kau, and Puna Districts. The taste of the coffee is as distinct as the land (and climate) where it grows. In Kona, coffee grows in rocky lava and in Kau, the desert; in Puna in the jungle.
Our Hog Heaven Coffee is gown in the region known as the Hāmākua coast (northeast of the island). This area is steeped in deep rich volcanic soil. So our coffee has a mild, yet fruity and chocolatey flavor.
