All of our coffee is grown on a single-estate on the misty slopes of Hualalai.  After being nourished by the rich volcanic soil, sunny mornings, afternoon clouds, and regular rainfall.  Every coffee cherry is hand-picked.  As the summer sun ripens the cherry to red, our pickers meticulously look for only the perfect fruit to pick by hand, coming back to the same tree dozens of times before the end of a harvest.

From our fields, the bright coffee cherry travels ten minutes down a windy country road to our mill.  The ripe cherry is then hulled, polished, cleaned, and graded by our wet or dry mill.  In small batches, our Master Roaster transforms the different grades of green beans with her arsenal of expertise.  While crafting light, medium, full city, or dark roasts, she tests each batch to ensure the perfect taste, smell, and color.  This journey ends for our prized coffee bean in a cup full of velvety flavor.
