1st Place 2019 Kona Coffee Cultural Festival Cupping Competition
Hawaiian Queen Coffee received the 1st place award at the 2019 Cupping Competition during the 49th annual Kona Coffee Cultural Festival. This is the third time that we have won the premiere cupping (best tasting) competition for Kona coffee.
Since its inception in 1970, the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival has sought to preserve, perpetuate and promote Kona’s 200-year coffee heritage. Hawaii’s oldest food festival celebrates the culture behind Kona’s world-famous cup of coffee! Throughout the 10-day Festival, attendees celebrate the harvest as Kona coffee farms offer a firsthand look at growing this world-famous crop, the coffee art scene fills with inspiration, and music and dance enrich cultural exchanges. Kona coffee and food events offer tastings, and hands-on cultural events help tell the story of Kona’s rich coffee history.
