Harvest time at Maui Coffee Farms

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   Marilyn Jansen Lopes http://mauicountryfarmtours.com…

Beautiful Day at the West Maui Coffee Farms

The winds were howling in Launiupoko this morning as they blew out of the valley from the West Maui Mountains. The barn doors at Piliani Kope Farm had to be closed and Greg was roasting coffee for tomorrow’s Farmers Market. We enjoyed delicious Coffee, banana bread, chocolate chip cookies by Susy and a trek into the moist permaculture surrounding the coffee trees, to learn about growing coffee and how they do it here on Maui. Greg told us how they stump the trees to promote growth out the runners (shoots) off the coffee trees. These are gorgeous red coffee cherries almost ready to be picked. Beautiful island of Lanai below. These Koa trees bring nitrogen to the coffee trees through the roots into the soil. There is cacao growing on the property also. Love these purple flowers… Related to sweet…
