Kona Coffee Color and Fragrance

White on BlueJacaranda in BloomI love spring in Kona. We’re coming out of the dry season and have a bit more rain in the afternoons, but the color and fragrance in the air is intoxicating. While our biggest coffee bloom-fest was in late March this year, we’re continuing to get some puffs of white on the coffee trees. This coffee shot (photo) is from a few years ago, but you can see why the coffee blossoms are so inviting. Coffee blossoms have a faint fragrance similar to orange blossoms, but not nearly as strong. The “Kona Snow” sadly only on the tree for a few days. They self-pollinate and fall away as quickly as they came.

I’ve been getting inquiries about Kona Coffee properties from across the US and even internationally. Great to see the interest. Whenever I travel on “The Mainland”, I find that Kona is most well known for its coffee. A close second is its laid back lifestyle. I agree with both.

No math in the blog today, just beauty. Come enjoy it with us!!

If you’re serious about your coffee or serious about a Kona Coffee farm, I’m serious about helping you.

Seasons of Change

Aloha to all,
Just a quick note. We’re firmly into a season of change. Some high elevation farms (like mine) still have some cherry coming off the trees. Most farms (even mine) have completed the pruning. We had a huge bloom in the last week of March covering nearly the entire Kona Coffee Belt. We’re slowly getting the afternoon cloudiness associated with the summer coming toward us, but not the regular afternoon rains yet. Farms that will be planting new acreage are getting ready to put the seedlings in the ground. Mostly irrigated plots have planted so far. My farm looks great with its pruning and a recent haircut (mowing). Overall it’s a nice spring.

If you’re serious about your coffee or serious about a Kona Coffee farm, let me help you do the math.
