What all farmers hope for is that yes next year will be a good crop. The kona Snow is blanketed all of the trees and the smell of gardenias (coffeee is in the gardenia family) fills the air. The flowers last a day or two so when the coffee is white and in bloom we appreciate each and every one. We have had rain and cool mornings and evenings, clear skies, and yes Kona Snow. It takes 6 months from bloom to coffee cherry. 2012 Coffee is available now but order soon while it lasts via www.mahinamelefarm.com. Thank you for following this blog and please ask any questions you may want to know about macs and or Kona coffee. Your farmer fiends, Kollette and Jason.
