Coffee Grown like Wine.

Kona Joe Estate-Grown Trellised Coffee is produced by growing the coffee trees on trellises just like grapevines. In fact, the farm utilizes many techniques from the finest vineyards.

Kona Joe Coffee is grown on Alban Farms, a 20-acre family owned estate in Kona's verdant Kainaliu Valley, adjacent to the Mauna Loa Volcano. Owners Deepa and Joe Alban describe the proprietary process used to cultivate their coffee, "The Arabica trees are grown on trellises similar to those used to nurture fine wine grapes. This technique gives the coffee cherries maximum exposure to the sun and allows them to achieve their optimum sugar content and ripeness. Once they are fully mature, the cherries are hand-picked and roasted to perfection in small batches by our skilled roastmaster."

Kona Joe Trellised Coffees are available at Neiman Marcus, Liberty House of Hawaii, Dean & Deluca and on their web site.
