We found this great article to check out too……http://www.macnutoil.com/why_

Im Looking into macadamia nut oil and the medium chain tryiglycerides (MCT) for my bullet coffee in the morning. It seems like a perfect fit!!!!. Mahalo Kollette and Jason Stith

recommends.htmMacadamia nut oil can also claim to be the highest botanical source of Palmitoleic acid, a monounsaturated fat. Palmitoleic acid has been used for stroke prevention and is now widely used in skin care because it is a wonderful emollient and moisturizer. Palmitoleic acid is naturally found in human skin oil and is known to diminish with aging.

Ripe Kona Coffee berries

Organic Kona Peaberry is an exclusive coffee!

Aloha

The amount of coffee produced in Kona would feed the world of coffee drinkers for 1 day.  There just isn’t that much Kona Coffee available. It is sought after for it bold flavor and smooth richness that is undeniably wonderful. To add to this equation, Certified Organic Kona is even more rare. The Peaberry Coffee yield of an estate coffee farm is only a few percent of their total crop.

Organic Kona Peaberry is Exclusive!

We just roasted our Exlcusive Kona Rose Coffee Peaberry and the rich cholcolate and fruit undertones are heightened by its clean smooth finish.

HISTORY OF KONA COFFEE….

Kona coffee is the market name for coffee (Coffea arabica) cultivated on the slopes of Hualalai and Mauna Loa in the North and South Kona Districts of the Big Island of Hawaii. It is one of the most expensive coffees in the world. Only coffee from the Kona Districts can be described as “Kona”. The weather of sunny mornings, cloud or rain in the afternoon, little wind, and mild nights combined with porous, mineral-rich volcanic soil create favorable coffee growing conditions. The loanword for coffee in the Hawaiian language is kope, pronounced [ˈkope].[1]

IT HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT RAIN FOR WEEKS FEELS LIKE MONTHS. THE COFFEE IS IN HEAVEN DEVELOPING PLUMP JUICY COFFEE CHERRIES READY TO BE PICKED AS WE SPEAK.

Roasted Kona Rose Coffee

Organic Kona Coffee is a “rare” treat!

I just read that for as much coffee that the world consumes, Kona Coffee would supply the world for 1 day. Now Organic Kona Coffee really is a “rare” treat. There is not that many of us in this small pond growing delicious Kona Coffee Organically. Kona Rose Coffee really is an exceptional cup of Kona. I am probably biased being the coffee grower and consumer, although one of the reasons we have chosen Kona Coffee is the rich full bodied flavor, low acidity and smooth finish that Kona Coffee is known for. We are a small family run farm who gets the chance to pick our coffee at the time of perfection and grow it with other tropical fruits and macadamia nuts. Because of a lot of variables Kona Rose Coffee has delicious fruit undertones and a chocolatey finish. Organic Kona Rose Coffee is a “rare” treat. Enjoy from all of us at Mahina Mele Farm

Jaboticaba (Myrciaria cauliflora) on Mahina Mele Farm 2013

Jaboticaba fruit is delicious and it always brings a start of surprise when people see the tree covered in these juicy, purple globes.  As you can see from the flowers the jaboticaba tree flowers and produces fruit right from the branches and trunk!  It is spectacular when in bloom and when the  fruit is ripening.   The trees are flowering now so we’ll have boatloads of fruit in about 6-8 weeks.

FYI , I am always a little vague about time because I live… on a farm… in Hawaii.  Both those scenarios profoundly affect my interpretation of time ( for the better I think)!  And as my 4 1/2 year old so wisely stated ” it’s all in how you look at it”.

But jaboticaba makes great jelly and syrup for our hotcakes.  We mix the syrup with sparkling water for our own, homemade Italian sodas.  Jaboticaba wine and mead  are also popular and delicious.  My friend Colehour and his cohorts make some of the best jaboticaba mead there is.  Check out his farm here http://www.kanalanifarm.org/

I am going to try some jaboticaba vinegar as I love balsamic and this fruit is very grape-like in its sugar content and flavor.   I’ll do that when I get some free time…. Never dull moment at Mahina Mele Farm
