Kona Rose Coffee Trees

Why is Kona Coffee so special?

Although Kona Coffee is perpetually in high demand, the 600-700 small-scale coffee growers in the Kona district provide less than one percent of the world’s supply of coffee because growers are limited by land. This relatively small ecological niche is surrounded by areas inhospitable to coffee cultivation, yet the Kona Coffee Belt is perfectly suited for coffee’s finicky cultivation preferences. Kona coffee is described as delicious, aromatic, and has a medium body. It is surely one of the best ways to get a taste of the unique geography of the Big Island.

Kona Rose Coffee not only brings 100% Kona gourmet coffee to you, it is also farm direct, roasted weekly and Certified Organic. This makes Kona Rose Coffee a very special and highly exclusive treat! Enjoy the difference in a perfectly balanced, rich and chocolatey, cup of Kona to your table.




The island of Hawaii, locally known as “The Big Island,” is home to one of the world’s most diverse array of climatic conditions and ecosystems. This is considerably impressive because such expansive geographical diversity is packed within an island less than 100 miles across at its widest point. In fact, humid rain forests, polar mountain tops, black lava fields, shrubby deserts, world-famous Hawaiian beaches, and many more different micro-climates are all within a day’s drive.

Out of this vast array of nestled micro-climates, it is no surprise that one of them holds the perfect mix of elevation, temperature, precipitation, and sunlight to produce some of the world’s best coffee. This niche of ideal coffee growing conditions is located in the Kona district, known as the “Kona Coffee Belt” of Hawai’i.

Kona is located on the leeward side of the Big Island. In fact, the word “Kona” in the Hawaiian language refers to the leeward winds that flow opposite to the prevailing trade winds. These Kona winds bring life-giving rain to the otherwise dry and sunny Kona Coast.

Coffee is a particularly picky plant. It needs rich soil, proper drainage, sufficient and constant rainfall, high elevation, ample sunshine, and can prosper only in a relatively narrow temperature range. These ecological factors combine in the Kona Coffee Belt, thanks to neighboring active volcano Mauna Loa, making Kona a superb growing region for great tasting coffee.

Rich and Well-drained Soil

The island of Hawai’i is the youngest Hawaiian island. Due to its relatively young geological age, Hawaii does not have much soil, but decomposing volcanic ash and rock serve as growing substrate for vegetation. This volcanic material originated from previous eruptions of Mauna Loa, the active volcano that the Kona Coffee Belt is perched upon.

This volcanic soil is nutrient rich and extremely fertile; as the natural elements chemically and mechanically weather the ash and lava rock, useful nutrients and minerals are released that support coffee plant growth and coffee bean production.

Coffee plants grow best in well-drained soils. If left in standing water, coffee plant roots are vulnerable to infestation by fungi or bacteria that cause root rot.

Root rot destroys the root of the plant, making it impossible for the plant to extract the necessary nutrients, minerals, and water from the surrounding soil. Coffee plants are especially vulnerable to root rot, so it is vital that this crop is cultivated in well-drained soil.

Mauna Loa once again provides the optimal growing conditions for Kona coffee plants: volcanic soil drains extremely well. In addition, the Kona Coffee Belt is located on the slope of Mauna Loa, further facilitating soil drainage.

 A Perfect Balance between Sun and Rain

The weather in Kona is uncannily suited for the cultivation of the coffee plant. Kona mornings are known for their clear blue sunny skies. By noon, moist air masses are obstructed by the gargantuan Mauna Loa volcano that the Kona Coffee Belt rests on. Due to orthographic lifting, Mauna Loa forces the air masses to rise. As the air rises, water vapor condenses to form clouds. This daily afternoon cloud cover helps to protect the coffee plants from excess heat and sun, while also providing daily light rain showers.

Coffee plants require at least four hours of sunlight a day. With too little sunlight, coffee plants are unable to obtain enough energy to grow and produce coffee beans. At the same time, too much sunlight can cause wilting, heat stress, and even death. To protect the delicate coffee plants, it is a common practice for farmers in other parts of the world to plant taller vegetation in coffee fields for shading and protection from excess heat exposure. However, in Kona, farmers are able to rely on Hawaiian weather to provide this same purpose.

Coffee plants require at least an average of 40 inches of rain a year. Light but frequent showers are the preferred vectors of precipitation. Kona receives an average of forty-five inches of rainfall annually, so there is no need for irrigation in most, if not all, of the Kona Coffee Belt. Kona coffee farmers are fortunate enough to receive the optimal amount of water from the Hawaiian sky. Thus, the same clouds that provide afternoon shading also provide light but daily rain showers.


Coffee is generally cultivated in high elevation tropical regions because these sites have a lowered mean temperature as well as copious amounts of sunlight. These environmental conditions slow the growing process without killing the coffee plant, allowing the bean to mature over a longer period of time. This drawn-out and slower-paced growing cycle allows more complex flavors to develop in the growing bean, resulting in the rich flavor bouquets desired in superior coffee.

The Kona Coffee Belt ranges from 500-3000 feet in altitude. Kona coffee is unique in that it can be successfully grown at such low elevation. Geographically situated at a relatively high latitude, the Kona Coffee Belt simulates the environmental conditions of higher altitude sites despite its low elevation. This slows the growing cycle of the bean, creating the rich flavors characteristic of Kona coffee.



Not surprisingly, coffee plants are also considerable picky when it comes to temperature.  They prefer average temperatures above 55°F. Coffee plants are easily killed by frost and cannot tolerate temperature below 40°F. Conversely, temperatures above 80°F will cause heat stress, preventing coffee plants from growing well or producing much fruit. In addition, consistently high temperatures significantly reduce the quality of coffee flavors developed in the bean.


Kona temperatures average around 60°F, making it a perfect fit for coffee’s narrow temperature range. Here, coffee plants are free from the risk of frost and are at minimal risk of heat stress.

Organic Hawaiian Macadamia Nut Oil

Organic Macadamia Nut Oil

Organic Macadamia Nut Oil


Im so glad you found us, we are family run and operated organic macadamia nut and Kona Coffee farm. We dont know of any other organic hawaiian macadamia nuts or macadamia nut oil in the U.S,. I thought Id share the benefits of this exclusive oil.

Macadamia Nut Oil Benefits:

One standout characteristic of macadamia nut oil is that it is rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids while noticeably low in saturated fatty acids. This is what makes it heart-healthy. As it turns out, such a fatty acids profile is capable of lowering the LDL cholesterol, otherwise known as the bad cholesterol, in the blood.

Macadamia nut oil has a properly balanced omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids content as well, which is at 1-to-1 ratio. Both are considered essential fatty acids, which simply means they are not manufactured by the body, and consequently have to be supplemented through the diet. Omega-3 acts as an anti-inflammatory, while omega-6 functions more as a pro-inflammatory. It is for this reason a proper balance of these essential fatty acids has to be maintained, otherwise chronic diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases may develop. Including macadamia nut oil on a regular basis in your diet should then help achieve this crucial essential fatty acids balance.

Macadamia nut oil is very rich in phytochemicals like squalene, tocotrienols and tocopherols. These compounds protect against oxidation of this edible oil, making it suitable for unrefrigerated storage for up to two years. What’s best, these very same phytochemicals, when ingested by including macadamia nut oil in your diet, help protect against oxidative stress to again prevent the development of oxidative stress-induced diseases like cancer.

Recipe: Raw Macadamia Nut Cheese

1.Soak nuts for 30 min in H20

2.blend with water to make a slurry

3. pour through cheese cloth and let hang overnight

4. add lemon and salt to taste to mac cheese and make into patties to be enjoyed over the course

of 1-2 weeks.

it seems to get better and better. enjoy! To your health, Kollette

Macadamia Nut Oil’s Practical Uses:

As was mentioned, macadamia nut oil is more popular as a beauty aid. Because it gets easily absorb by the skin without leaving a greasy and heavy feeling,See Pure Mana Hawaii for our Organic luxury skincare line



Roasted Kona Rose Coffee

Bullet Coffee Recipe

Recently I was introduced to bullet coffee, a blended coffee drink made with upgraded coffee i.e Kona Rose Coffee, grass-fed butter, and MCT oil (raw coconut and or macadamia nut oil)

Bullet Coffee Recipe

  • Brew 1 cup (8-12 oz.) of coffee using filtered water, just off the boil, with 2 1/2 heaping tablespoons freshly ground Organic Kona Rose Coffee. (French Press is easiest.)
  • Add in 1-2 tablespoons of Organic Macadamia nut oIl or Raw Organic Coconut Oil to the hot coffee (It’s STRONG – start with 1 tsp. and work up over several days).
  • Add 1-2 tablespoons grass-fed, unsalted butter or ghee
  • Mix it all in a blender for 20-30 seconds until it is frothy like a foamy latte

Try this just once, with at least 2 Tbs of butter, and have nothing else for breakfast. You will experience one of the best mornings of your life, with boundless energy and focus. It’s amazing.


MCT Oil provides fast energy with no crash

Medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil. MCTs have carbon tails that come in various lengths, from C-6 to C-12. The shorter the tail, the faster your body can absorb the MCT and convert it to ketones, little molecules that can fuel your brain instead of glucose quickly, thus speeding up your metabolism and giving you a cognitive boost.

Why Grass- fed butter?

Grass-fed butter is full of high-quality fats and nutrients

Cows evolved to eat grass, not factory farm lot feed. Grass-fed cows are healthier than factory-farmed or grain-fed cows, and the butter they produce reflects their good health.

  • Grass-fed butter is higher than grain-fed butter in omega-3 fatty acids, CLA, beta-carotene, vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin D, vitamin E, and antioxidants. You can actually see the difference in the butter: grass-fed butter is a sunny yellow color, while grain-fed/factory-farmed butter is almost white. The lack of color is a sign that the butter is coming from sick, nutrient-depleted cows.
  • Grass-fed butter is high in butyrate, a short-chain fatty acid. Studies show that butyrate can both prevent and decrease inflammation in humans. In rodents, studies have shown butyrate to protect against mental illness, improve body composition, increase metabolism, and improve gut health.
  • Butter is nutrient-dense. A single tablespoon of butter contains:
    • 500 IU vitamin A
    • More carotenes than carrots
    • High amounts of vitamin K2, vitamin D, and vitamin E

Grass-fed butter is a superfood.. Kerrygold is an excellent grass-fed butter brand, and it’s stocked in most supermarkets.

-Anyway after being introduced to this breakfast drink, I have been feeling energized and focused just wanted to share,

thank you 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.
