In Hawaiian, the word "makai" is directional, guiding us seaward, toward the ocean. Our Kona Makai coffee has a special relationship with the ocean, grown on the seaward reaches of the Farm, the first trees caressed by the trade winds and the last to feel the warmth of the afternoon sun.
Just like the serene and peaceful views of the ocean from our Farm, Kona Makai evokes the essential relationship between ocean and island here in Hawaii, like the relationship between our Kona farm and our ohana far and near. We hope you enjoy!
