88-2734 Honomalino Road, Captain Cook, HI, 96704
Their 13 acres farm stands between 1,900 to 2,000 feet above sea level, and is located in the Honomalino Acres subdivision, in South Kona, on the Big Island of Hawai'i (Hawaii island), on the West slopes of the Mauna Loa Volcano, within the famous Kona Coffee Belt. The property was purchased back on 2004, it was a macadamia nut orchard with 1,200 trees already producing nuts. In spring 2013, after almost ten years of being traveling from Arizona to Hawaii to take care of the macadamia nuts orchard, Armando passed the torch of the construction company to his brother, and they moved there, making that piece of paradise their permanent home. They started planting the first coffee trees that same year, “keiki” trees that some fellow neighbor coffee farmers gave them to help them startup their coffee plantation. Since they began this project, they have been involved in a continuous learning path that has allowed them to implement the best practices the coffee industry for growing, harvesting, processing, milling, and roasting specialty coffee, not only in the State of Hawaii, but Worldwide. This project is the result of hard work and effort, of overcoming a lot of challenges. Done with love and respect to the land, to the people who help them, to their community; with commitment to their values, and lots, lots of faith.
