Coffee Statistics

Aloha to all,
It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since beginning the blog. I know I haven’t been as active as I could have been. I suppose when one is immersed in coffee, one forgets that others are curious and have questions. I’ve been answering a few coffee realty related questions, and more than a few coffee farming questions. Interestingly, many of the questions have been coming from outside the United States. Keep the questions coming. I joke to my kids that I have the miraculous ability to answer any questions. The danger is that sometimes the answer might be wrong.

Here’s a link to a very recent Pacific Business News article about Kona and Hawaii coffee.

It’s full of statistics about the number of farms, sizes of farms, crop size, etc. One statistic that can be derived from the article is farm size. With 790 Kona Coffee farms and 3000 harvested acres, the average farm size is just under 3.8 acres.

A hui hou,
