Kona Festival Receives Gift.
Kona coffee farmer Skip Dahlen, one of several recipients in a Kona coffee litigation lawsuit, gifted his entire settlement check to the festival. Dahlen is hoping that other recipients will be motivated to follow suit and donate their proceeds to the festival to promote Kona coffee. The Kona Coffee Cultural Festival is planning to use the proceeds to promote Kona coffee through national and international media to regain consumer confidence.
Skip Dahlen, owner of Mauka Meadows Coffee Grounds operates one of Kona's largest coffee plantations. Mauka Meadows Coffee Grounds carefully hand picks their harvest to ensure the highest quality and the latest technology for coffee processing.
The Kona Coffee Cultural Festival celebrates its 31st anniversary with over 30 events planned from November 3-11, 2001. The Kona Coffee Cultural Festival brings the local community together to celebrate Kona's famous harvest while attracting hundreds of visitors to a variety of events including art exhibits, tastings, a cupping competition, and farm tours, sporting events, contests, and parades. The mission of the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival is to promote Kona coffee and to celebrate more than 170 years of Kona coffee heritage.
