Covid Pandemic Cancels 2020 Competition Season!

October 16, 2020

Each year we participate in the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival’s Kona coffee cupping competition to showcase the quality of our harvest. Unfortunately, the Covid pandemic has lead to the cancellation of the 2020 event. It was originally scheduled for November 4th through the 8th. As always, we will continue to produce some of the finest coffee available anywhere in the world this coffee season. We look forward to defending our 2019 first place award in 2021!
