This award winning Kona Geisha coffee is exceedingly rare. Beyond being hand-harvested and meticulously produced by the Stille family at their Monarch Estate Farm in Holualoa, it's also produced using sustainable farm practices and without harmful chemicals.
Geisha coffee is a variety that originated in Ethiopia, renowned for the aromatic, complex, floral and fruit forward coffees it produces. Due to rarity and demand, Geisha coffees can reach up to $600 per lb, and retail in cafes for $9-$18/ cup.
To cultivate this rare coffee the family practices cover-cropping, composting, and interplanting to protect the ecosystem and attract butterflies, bees and pollinators to their land.
Their commitment to maintaining healthy soil and perfect harvesting has paid off in the form of their numerous awards, like earning Grand Champion in the 2018 Hawaii Coffee Association Cupping Competition, and 1st place in the Kona Cultural Coffee Festival.
We're excited to offer this limited tasting to you!
