Kona Coffee Farm Report #6

Here's the 6th Kona Coffee farm report from our Licensed Q Grader and resident farmer extraordinaire, Paul Massard.

Kona Coffee Farm Report #5

Here's the latest Kona Coffee farm report from our Licensed Q Grader and resident farmer extraordinaire, Paul Massard:

"We are still engaged in heavy harvesting on the farm, and from what I have seen, we are one of the last farms still harvesting due to our higher elevation.

We are taking random samples of the picking quality to come up with a benchmark we will use next year. We are also taking random samples from the pickers' bags and gauging the amount of green coffee they have picked using a graduated cylinder. We aim to have pickers filling the majority of their bags with perfectly ripe cherries.

Kona Coffee Farm Report #4 - Late October 2014

The farm is looking amazing. This can be attributed to the amount of rain we've received this year. Last year we received a total of 27 inches of rain, while this year we are at a whopping 56 inches and counting. We have the three near-miss hurricanes to thank for this, along with changes in El Niño patterns.

Kona Coffee Farm Report #3

Our Marketing Director, Chris Reimer, had the chance to talk with our resident Q Grader Paul Massard about his recent trip to our two Kona Coffee farms. He's there about every two weeks, and always brings back a great story and a bunch of fascinating information about the farm. Here we go!

Chris: Paul, what’s the latest on our coffee farms in Kona?

Paul: Right now the first third of the harvest is about over. We’re now seeing the cherries ripen at higher elevations on the large farm. The small farm is still ripening; it will be another month or month and a half until that’s finished.
