Coffees of Hawaii

Coffees of Hawaii

All coffee from Hawaii is not created equal. Or rather, coffees from Hawaii all tastes

Coffee grows everywhere in Hawaii, but commercially mostly on four of the islands - Hawaii (or Big Island), Ohau, Maui, and Kauai.  Coffees grown in Hawaii boasts different tastes because the taste of the coffee depends on the land that it is grown in.

 On the Big Island there are different districts with distinct tasting coffees: Kona, Hamakua (where our Hog Heaven 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, and in Hamakua deep rich volcanic soil. Elevation and rainfall matters too.  Hog Heaven Coffee is located 1,400 feet in elevation where there always is a gentle breeze and cooler temperature. 

As for rainfall, in the Kona District on the western side of the island it rains 10-40" per year and coffee is grown where topsoil if any, is measured in inches deep. Here on the eastern side of the island in the Hāmākua District topsoil is measured in feet deep and we average about 200” of rain per year. 

Hog Heaven Coffee is "estate grown", which means our coffee is sourced solely from our farm.  We do not blend our coffee with any other coffees. We know where our coffee comes from and how it is processed. The only coffee we sell is all the coffee we can pick from our trees.  Once it's gone, we have to wait for next season's harvest for more.

We love our coffee! We drink our coffee every morning and we’re the first to try each new batch. We’ve never been disappointed; each cup every morning is smooth, delicious, most satisfying coffee.
