Coffee growing began in Hawaiian in 1813 in the Manoa Valley of Oahu. The first plantings came from seedlings of the Typica plant found in Brazil. The Kona region did not get their first seedlings until 1828/1829 when missionary Samuel Riggles brought coffee to the Kona region.
The Greenwell tradition of producing one of Hawaii’s best coffees began in 1850 when Henry Nicholas Greenwell and his wife first set foot on the fertile soil of rural Kona. For 40 years Henry and his wife cultivated and perfected Kona coffee. In 1873 the Greenwell’s received a recognition award for their Kona coffee at the World’s Fair in Vienna, Austria.
Today the tradition of growing fine coffee continues with descendants of Henry and his wife. In addition to growing coffee the farm’s wet and dry mills processes the cherries picked on their farm and neighboring farms. While the farm has evolved to modern processing facilities, the traditions and standards of quality placed in 1850 by Henry remain today.
The farm offers free tours of the farm and processing facilities. During these tours one can learn about the labor of love brought to every cup of expertly grown and processed Greenwell Farms Kona coffee.
