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

About Kona Blends

Authentic Kona coffee, by Hawaiian law, requires the label “100% Kona Coffee” be prominently displayed on the package. Hawaiian law also states that Kona blends state the percentage of Kona beans on the label (there is no matching federal law.)  Some retailers use terms such as “Kona Blend”, “Kona Roast”, or “Kona Style”. There must be a minimum of 10% Kona beans in a Kona blend, but the remaining coffee beans are not required to be identified, are usually are not.

We are a member of the Kona Coffee Farmers Association (KFCA, visit them at, which seeks to protect the “Kona coffee heritage” and promotes buying directly from Kona coffee farmers. Their video talks about these blends, and one of the hidden ingredients they contain.

Our Kona Rose coffee is made from 100% Kona coffee beans, which have been certified organic, so you know exactly what’s in your cup. Enjoy your coffee, and thank your for supporting Mahina Mele Farm!

Kona Coffee is Kona Snow

When Kona Coffee is in full flower it is called Kona Snow. The hillsides are white with flowers and fragrant as gardenias. Coffee is in the Gardenia family and it has an intoxicating smell for 2 to 3 days. The Kona Snow is wonderful this year. Try Kona Rose and taste why Kona Coffee is so sought after. We use only Certified Organic practices, pick the cherry when its fully mature, and ferment the coffee to perfection. We roast our coffee to a medium-dark roast which brings out a rich bold full bodied flavor with chocolate and fruit undertones. Try Kona Rose Coffee for an unforgettable cup of Kona.

The process of turning coffee cherry to roasted bean is an art!!!!


image image (2) coffee07snowThe process of turning coffee cherry (the red berry picked off the tree) to roasted coffee varies slightly. It is the art of processing that can make a ordinary cup of coffee amazing.  The rule of thumb is pick the coffee when ripe, which only occurs with small estate coffees. The coffee is pulped (the skin is removed) then the coffee ferments and then washed. The coffee is then left to be dried which may take days to weeks depending on weather conditions. Then the parchment is removed and the coffee is stored as green coffee. Finally the coffee is roasted. The roast is also a vital part of the art of a excellent cup of coffee!coffee-bagWe have learned from our experience as Peace Corps volunteers in El Salvador the art of processing coffee. Great care is taken from pick to roast to provide a full bodied, smooth cup of coffee with rich chocolate, macadamia nut, and fruit undertones. Being sustainably smart and Certified Organic is our intention to care for our aina (environment) as well as your well being. Enjoy this gourmet coffee and experience the highest quality Organic Kona coffee. Taste the real Kona. Have a beautiful day.

Organic Raw Macamia Nut Oil

Aloha, wanted to share some news regarding our Organic Raw Macadamia Nut Oil. Macadamia Nut Oil has a high smoke point, meaning you can stir-fry or bake with it without changing its nutritive qualities. It is the only oil we use because it is also great for salad dressings as well as for cooking. It has balanced amounts of  Omega 3’s and 6’s, the good fats, the fats that increase metabolism and decrease cholesterol.  Macadamia Nut oil also is the oil most similar to our skin. It has paneoletic acid which is in the protective layer of our skin. Applying macadamia oil as a massage oil or daily oil will prevent against sun damage and restore skins vitality. Its light nutty aroma is delicious on just about anything. Mahina Mele Farm’s Organic Raw Macadamia Nut Oil is “Raw” because the nuts are dehydrated before being pressed. This is a very special gourmet oil that is versatile and  made in small batches right here on our farm. Please try and enjoy the gifts Hawaii has to offer.

Peaberry Kona Rose Organic Coffee

What is Peaberry coffee? Why is it so delicious? Why does Peaberry typically cost more?  Peaberry is technically a defect in coffee. The coffee cherry usually produces two coffee beans, in a small percentage 1 bean is formed and this is called Peaberry Coffee. As a Organic coffee farmer and Kona Coffee drinker I didnt think our coffee could get any better. We started selecting the Peaberry out of our estate and recently cupped it. It was the best coffee we had ever tasted. Clean and smooth with bright fruity and chocolaty undertones. It is truly my favorite now. I asked the coffee roaster why the Peaberry is so significantly different and he stated that “the sugars to make 2 coffee beans is condensed into 1”.  Our Peaberry goes for $21 per 1/2LB and $40/LB. The reason for the high price is that there is not much of this delicious delicacy and it has to be sorted out from the rest of the coffee harvest.  If you are interested in trying our Certified Organic Kona Rose Peaberry, contact us at Look forward to hearing your responses. Have a amazing day!
