Ever heard of the expression “Don’t talk to me before I’ve had my coffee?”, we totally understand. We like to take things one cup at a time too. In Kona of the Big Island, the very first coffee tree was planted in 1828 by Samuel Reverend Ruggles. By 1899, nearly three million coffee trees had grown throughout the region. Nowadays, there are nearly 650 coffee farms in Kona. Most coffee plants in Kona are owned by families whose roots resonate on the Big Island in Kona. Not many know this, but coffee grown in Kona is advantageous compared to it’s competitors in Brazil and Columbia. This is because of the rich volcanic soil and high elevation that the coffee is cultivated in.
