Harvest time at Maui Coffee Farms

by Marilyn Jansen Lopes on October 26, 2012

It was an amazing day for Agriculture in West Maui at Piliani Kope Farm and Kaanapali Coffee Farms.


The Coffee cherries were ripe for the harvest.


Got a glimpse of the coffee harvesters in action and the abundant coffee cherries here ready

to be transported to the mill for sorting, washing, pulping and drying.


What a beautiful sight to see millions of MauiGrown Coffee cherries.


Above we see cacao and the lovely Piliani Kope Farm where coffee is hand picked just as

it is done in Kona for a hundred years.


Greg Stille, President of Maui Coffee Association and The Hawaii Coffee Association,

shows us the next node where a coffee cherry will bud on the tree.

The land is rich in diversity and life.
We’d love to share this with you…

Marilyn, it’s so exciting to see these pictures! I was there but to see them again brings back lovely memories 😀

Lorraine, it’s really exciting to see the harvester in action and huge troughs full of 100% MauiGrownn Coffee. Come back and we’ll have another fun tour.
