Your morning cup of coffee is a ritual.

Your morning cup of coffee is a ritual, it’s what gets you out of bed in the morning and what you look forward to the night before .The ritual is the way you prepare your coffee, its strength and intensity,  its unique to your taste and individual requests. Our rituals are what nurtures us, its the way we take care of ourselves.

I awake and watch this morning as my husband hand grinds the coffee, after he as measured it with his wooden coffee spoon, then allows it to steep in our french press. Finally as his gift  he hands me my first cup of Kona Rose Coffee. Its a deep and spiritual pleasure, that first sip, the way I hold it in my hand and breathe in deeply. I wonder if its the coffee I’m drinking and the way we have nurtured each coffee tree, picked each ripe berry and fermented it. Raked the coffee for hours and days until it was dried and then roasted to perfection. I’m sure its all these things that make this morning cup of coffee a gorgeous ritual but its this quality that no matter if you have had direct contact with each plant it shares itself with anyone who drinks it.

Its the quality of the coffee….. there’s no denying, no deceiving of the senses, no greater way to explain, its the truth and integrity that makes this ritual.

Enjoy our Certified Organic Kona Rose Coffee, Kollette and Jason Stith

Roasted Kona Rose Coffee

Why is Kona Coffee so special?

Why is Kona Coffee so special? The answer is It is special because Kona coffee makes up less than 1% of all the coffee grown in the world. It grows in exotic, volcanic soil, it’s delicious to the pallet and once the crop is gone… it’s gone for the season. The Coffee is a favorite among many coffee aficionados because of its full-bodied flavor, with low acidity.

Kona Rose Coffee is one of the few Certified Organic Kona coffees available. We are a smal family run farm where we care about each cup of coffee.  We offer 8 oz and 1# bags freshly roasted and shipped the flowwowing day. Gourmet coffee starts here, farm direct.

8.5 fl oz bottle of organic macadamia nut oil

Organic Macadamia Nut Oil is Super

Organic Macadamia Nut Oil is Super. This high heat oil is nutty an delicious and Super versaltile, lending itself ti stir-frys, salad dressings, baking, Organic Macadamia Nut oil is rare to find here in the U.S., we pick, process, and press ourselves bottle in green glass to maintain its vitality. We do not process any other nuts in our facility. We are farm direct and have the purest gourmet organic Macadamia Nut oil available.

Benefits: However, between 78 to 86 percent of the fat in Macadamia nuts is monounsaturated (the good for you, heart-healthy kind of fat). Monounsaturated fat helps lower cholesterol and decreases your risk of heart disease and stroke.
In addition, macadamia nuts are one of the only food sources that contain palmitoleic acid (a type of monounsaturated fatty acid that may speed up fat metabolism, thus reducing the body’s ability to store fat).

Because of its high content of monounsaturated fat, macadamia nut oil is fast becoming a favorite among top chefs around the world. Not only is it healthier than olive oil and canola oil, but many people also believe that it has a better taste. In addition, macadamia nut oil has a higher smoke point than olive oil, which means that it can be cooked at higher temperatures without breaking down and losing its flavor.

Its the only oil we use and for a Super good reasons. Thank You Kollett and Jason Stith

A Superfood-Organic Macadamia Nut

.A  Super Food-Organic Macadamia Nut

“What can compare to the sweet, buttery mac nut’s tender embrace? As far as nuts, seeds, and pseudo-nuts go, its fatty acid profile is unparalleled. Throw a handful into a bowl of Greek yogurt, along with blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries (or any berry, really), and you’ve got yourself a rich, masterful dessert with minimal linoleic acid. And it’s got good amounts of magnesium, manganese, thiamine, copper, and iron. Not to mention some fiber too. Pack a baggy full and you’ve got yourself the perfect trail food for day long hikes.

I tend to get a little carried away when it comes to those little mouth bombs of satiety, so I apologize. Today’s post concerns the mac nut’s lifeblood: macadamia oil. I know what I’ve said about seed oils in the past, but this is different. I liken the concept of macadamia nut oil to that of olive oil; they are inherently, obviously, blatantly fatty foods, and extracting said fat isn’t a stretch, nor does it require industrial solvents and complex processes (they may do so to increase production and efficiency, but you can crush a mac nut and leave an oily residue; you can’t do the same for a kernel of corn to produce corn oil). In fact, the layman extracts his own virgin, first-press macadamia nut oil every time he bites into one. You can feel the macadamia oil droplets oozing out of the obliterated nut mass and into your mouth. Being the most energy (specifically, fat-derived energy) dense nut of all, it’s totally saturated with the stuff.

Macadamia oil imparts a mild, buttery, rather macadamia-y flavor to foods, but it’s mild enough to use for homemade mayonnaise. It is highly shelf-stable and resistant to heat-induced oxidation; in one test, it bested rice bran oil, walnut oil, sesame oil, almond oil, avocado oil, grapeseed oil, and hazelnut oil in an oxidative potential test. Of all the seed and nut oils, macadamia oil withstood temperatures up to 120 degrees C (about 250 degrees F) without significant oxidation. It also excelled at the shelf stability test, being the only oil tested that exceeded the manufacturer’s given “best-before” date. I rarely expect companies to be totally accurate, but to be completely wrong in the opposite direction is a nice surprise! Keep your macadamia oil in a dark bottle and in the fridge, or a cool dark place, and I bet it’ll stay fresh even longer. I’m still wary of doing any heavy duty sauteeing or high heat grilling using macadamia oil as the primary fat, but it looks to be pretty stable as far as oils go with a smoke point of anywhere between 210 and 234 degrees C (410-453 degrees F), depending on who you ask.Read more: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/macadamia-oil/#ixzz48UKPwlRY” I love this article!!

Aloha We at Mahina Mele Farm want to explain how we produce the freshest macadamia nuts possible! We are harvesting the macadamia nuts here on the Big Island of Hawaii all year round. The nuts love water and produce more during the fall, winter, and spring. We harvest the nuts, husk, crack, and dehydrate immediately for 3 days at 150 degrees. Once the nuts are removed from the dehydrators they are packaged and shipped with in 24 hrs. Not only are we the only certified organic macadamia nut producers that we know of here in the U.S. but we are also the freshest.
