Passport Coffee & Tea

Hawaiian Kona - Greenwell Farms

Sold out

Our coffee comes from Greenwell Farms. They grow their coffee on 250 acres in the middle of the Kona District where they also operate their own pulping, drying, and milling facilities to assure the highest standards of quality control possible throughout the entire coffee processing line.

This particular type, Kona Select (formerly known as No. 1),  has the minimum screen size of 16 and allows up to 18 imperfections in a 300 gram sample.  The change in the coffee name is a result of the Broca Beetle infestation, which have made traditional USDA grading standards very difficult to achieve.  Greenwell Farms is working diligently towards getting back to the original grading standards.

In 1850, Henry Nicholas Greenwell left England to pursue a new life in Kealakekua, Hawaii, which today is known as the Heart of Kona. Mr. Greenwell was later joined by his wife, Elizabeth Caroline, and the couple would spend the next 40 years farming, ranching and producing Kona Coffee.

His grandson, Norman Greenwell, and his great grandson, Thomas Greenwell, developed coffee in the early 1980s on some of the same land. This new generation of the Greenwell family has marshaled in the modern era of specialty coffee in Kona and has played an important part in Hawaii’s coffee industry. Today, the company maintains coffee orchards on 85 acres, is developing new farms, and it controls and manages another 60 acres of coffee for other land owners. As one of the largest and oldest coffee producers in Kona, Greenwell Farms is proud to celebrate its history and spread the spirit of aloha with every cup.
