Kona Coffee
Hawaii is the only state in the nation where coffee is grown commercially. More than 1,800 acres on the Big Island are utilized in coffee farming, producing about 2 million pounds a year, valued at about $6 million. There are over 500 coffee farms, cultivating coffee on the western slopes of Mauna Loa and Hualalai mountains in the Kona district between 800 and 2,000 foot elevations. Kona coffee is one of the top gourmet coffees in the world, highly prized due to its aroma and full-bodied flavor. Many coffee farms and mills are open to visitors and offer free tours and tastings. Kona coffee is available throughout retail outlets worldwide.
