Kona Earth
100% Kona Coffee

Kona Earth coffee farm blog
adventures, pictures and updates

This is a collection of articles about us, the farm, Kona coffee, Hawaii, or any other subject that seemed interesting at the time. The original idea was to post a new article every Monday morning so you could enjoy some pictures and a short story while sipping your fresh Kona coffee. The farm is still great but after so many years here, it's difficult to find new and interesting things to post. If you have any ideas, questions, or comments please feel free to contact us.
