Mahina Mele, Kona
Mahina Mele means “Moonsong Farm” in ‘Olelo Hawai‘i, the language of Hawai‘i. Home to Kollette and Jason Stith, and their three children, it is also one of the only producers of organic coffee on the island of Kona. Rich with sweet notes of macadamia nut, chocolate, and vanilla, this coffee is sure to remind you of the sweetness of life in the island of Hawai‘i.
“We arrived on the Big Island In June 2005 eager to see the coffee farm we purchased, sight unseen. Our first visit to our new home was stunning. While we had an idea of what we might find, we were thrilled to see the lush overgrown coffee trees and a macadamia nut orchard.
Our passion soon became cleaning the land. Using only organic practices, solar energy, and water catchment our farm soon became an oasis for birds, camelions, and all plant life. The coffee appreciated the attention and soon ripened with vibrant with red plump cherries. The rich volcanic soils of Hawaii and tropical climate allowed the coffee to thrive.”
