Beautiful Black Sand Beaches and lush rain forests in Hawaii

Hawaii Island isn’t just big, it’s still growing. The Island of Hawaii is the youngest island in the Hawaiian chain and is also by far the biggest, providing a vast canvas of environments to discover a variety of unrivaled natural wonders. This is the home of one of the world’s most active volcanoes (Kilauea), the tallest sea mountain in the world at more than 33,000 feet (Maunakea), the most massive mountain in the world (Maunaloa) and the largest park in the state (Hawaii Volcanoes National Park). All but two of the world’s climate zones generate everything from lush rain forests to volcanic deserts, snow-capped mountaintops to beautiful black sand beaches. Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway or a journey off the beaten path, you’ll discover it all on Hawaii, the Big Island.…IanLindsey Photo 1

Kona Coffee and Tea Company award winning farms

coffee_club.gifcoffee_club.gifThe Kona Coffee & Tea CompanyThe Kona Coffee & Tea CompanyAloha on this pleasant Thursday in Puako Hawaii. I came to work this morning and walked through the door, there it was that wonderful aroma of coffee brewing.

Malia Bolton of The Kona and Tea Company, another local business we truly appreciate. We use their coffee for our Vacation Rental clients. They always seem to love the true 100% Kona Coffee and its full flavor.

Copied from The Kona Coffee and Tea Company home page.

Kona Coffee from Kona, Hawaii, rivals the finest coffee in the world, and is an unique Gourmet gift. We offer only 100% Kona Coffee with the Kona Coffee Council seal of approval. We 100% guarantee you will enjoy our coffee.

The Kona Coffee and Tea Company presents you with 100% Private Reserve estate grown Kona Coffee. It is grown high above the Kona, Hawaii’s coastline in the rich soil of the Volcano Hualalai. Perfect elevation. Perfect clouds, rain and sun.

Our process begins on our farm:
After hand picking, we bring our best coffee cherries down from our mountain orchards and process them to remove the red skin and pulp. Then they are laid out in the tropical Kona sun to dry, a process taking many days and constant raking to turn each coffee bean for consistent drying.

The coffee beans are then hulled to remove their parchment and graded by both size and density. Only after the very best Kona coffee beans are selected are they given their USDA final inspection and grading.

Small batch roasting create s the rich flavor and aroma you associate with Kona Coffee. Our Estate Grown Private Reserve Kona coffee makes The World’s Most Perfect Coffee

Owning my own coffee farm would be a dream come true. Of course it creates local jobs and promotes fresh locally farmed goods.

Of course it could be a great way to retire and have a part time job at the same time. There are a few local Kona Coffee farms available for sale. One of the Estate Farms has 2 vacation rentals located on it. E mail me for details.
