What’s Happening at
Pruning, plucking, weed control, fertilizing & farm sanitation
has been done & is a continuous process to assist the trees in preparation
for the 2016-2017 coffee season. Our farmers continue to do their
part in controlling the CBB (Coffee Cherry Borer Beetle) that has
been devastating the coffee crop for the past few years. Our farmers
take every precaution & do their very best to help to control this
bug that is devastating the coffee crop here in the Kona area.
Even with the less than typical rainfall to set the flowers during
blossoming & with the battle against the CBB we are planning & hoping
for a fruitful season. As you drive through the different coffee
regions of Kona, from mauka (upper) to makai (lower) you can witness
the many coffee trees in different stages of growth and development.
Some will have the buds, developed flowers, and developing green
cherry on them at the same time. As the buds begin to bloom (known
as the Kona Snow) these flowers fill the air with a scent of jasmine.
As this happens this is the indicating sign that the 2016-2017 coffee
season is coming about and the cherries will soon be ready & picked
within the months of July-August to where the harvesting season
will run and last till around December-January.
The Kona Pacific Farmers Coop Farmer's Retail and Roasting Facility
has proven to be a grand find and a "MUST
SEE" place to experience "THE BEST"cups
of coffee on the island to where you can come, kick back, relax
and talk story. We also offer a mixed menu of the best espresso
drinks in the area of 100% Kona coffee made by our trained personnel
on our manual Simonelli espresso machine.
Headed to Kealakekua Bay for some water sports, driving or just
touring the Island, make KPFC's Retail and Visitor Center a top
priority, stop in, visit, grab a sample cup of Kona's best, and
bring some of Kona home with you. You will be glad that you did!!!
