If you love a great cup of Kona Coffee like I do, I urge you to visit the official Kona Coffee growing district on the Big Island of Hawaii. One of oldest coffee farms dating back to the mid 1800s is Greenwell Farms, growing, processing and roasting some of the finest Kona Coffee on the market today. The family-owned business carries the standard today as established by Henry Nicholas Greenwell, one of the earliest exporters of Kona Coffee from the islands, and can be found in every cup of 100% Kona Coffee bearing the Greenwell Farms label.
Greenwell Farms is now a multi-faceted agribusiness. In addition to growing and selling coffee, conducting tours of the farm, gift shop and online Greenwell Farms Coffee Club, the Kona Historical Society and Museum is now located in the ancestral home of Henry and Elizabeth Greenwell. In addition to the coffee they grow, Greenwell Farms also purchases freshly harvested coffee cherries from over 300 local farmers throughout the Kona Coffee Region and has elevated the farm to the premier supplier of Kona Coffee around the world.
Greenwell Farm Tours are offered Monday through Sunday 8:30am – 4:30pm Contact (808) 323-2295
Greenwell Farms Located : 81-6581 Mamalahoa Highway, Kealakekua
**** My suggestion try to go on Thursday, The Kona Historical Society practices the traditional art of baking Portuguese bread in a large wood-fired forno in the pasture behind the H.N. Greenwell Store Museum, wonderful opportunity to talk story with locals, employees and the community and purchase some fresh baked bread in the afternoon . What goes better with Kona coffee than fresh baked bread?
