SMITHFARMS welcomes you to try our 100% Kona coffee. Our Coffea arabica, var. typica trees are happy and healthy and most are over 125 years old! Still vigorous and beautiful Our trees are the heirloom real Kona Coffee, absolutely.


We know that our SMITHFARMS 100% Kona Coffee is as good as Kona coffee can be!   

Bob has enhanced our practically perfect natural conditions through individualized attention to each tree. He is able to give our trees this specialized care because of our 5-acre size. Honestly– he loves all of his  trees.Think it shows up in the cup.

We are sustainable farmers who do not use any insecticides. We are meeting our needs while considering the needs of future generations that will farm this same land.

The humans—Bob and I, Cea, live on the farm in our house and are the growers, pickers, and packers, selling our entire crop directly to people who enjoy our unique products. We hand farm our land, using no machinery, continuing the ancient tradition of hand farming by Hawaiians who grew taro, bananas, sweet potatoes and sugar cane in our same fields.

Did you know:  it takes about 250 ripe coffee cherries to total a pound of fresh coffee and it takes about 7 pounds of fresh coffee cherries (1,750 coffee cherries!) to get 1 roasted pound of coffee for you. Each coffee cherry is picked one by one, by hand.

Our Smithfarms farm is found high above historic Kealakekua Bay and overlooking the ancient Place Of Refuge in the district of South Kona on Hawaii island, the largest, and most southern of the 8 main Hawaiian islands. Captain Cook first landed in 1779 at Kealakekua Bay, below.

SMITHFARMS is a 5 acre Kona coffee whose farmers are dedicated to the conscientious care of the earth and its bounty. Indeed.

We have natural shade grown 100% Kona coffee and we use no chemical insecticides ever.

Our SMITHFARMS land has been hand farmed without any machinery ever. We have pre-contact stone walls, hand built by Hawaiians. No bulldozer has ever crushed our earth. The roots of our coffee plants can go anywhere they want in our light volcanic soil. Makes them happy coffee trees!

The equipment: a basket, pair of gloves, (lots of…) time in the fresh air …..

and the great result… Smithfarms coffee fruit in a basket!

What makes our Kona Coffee farm so special?

It is really just us, with Bob doing the hard farm work daily and we both work along side our pickers every picking day. I manage this web site and do other smithfarms-office type stuff. We are the sole packers and the pruners and roasters of our Smithfarms 100% Kona Coffee. Two mortals trying to do the right thing.

We can supply you with the finest 100% Kona coffee there is and we are confident about that.

Smithfarms is farmed by sustainable farmers (definition: meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs by doing the same thing on our land).

Bob is conscientious about the care of the land and would never jeopardize it.

We are a fairly traded coffee (definition: non-exploitive toward the farm, farmer or the workers).

We live in America, too.

A “clean and bright 100% Kona coffee flavor which is straight forward, and a full & smooth with a sweet body and such a lingering finish.” said a renowned coffee reviewer after tasting our coffee.

HOW DO WE DO IT?

We selectively hand pick each coffee bean so that only the ripest, reddest fruit is chosen.

We then carefully wet-process our coffee in lots of fresh volcanic aquifer water and then every Smithfarms Kona coffee bean is put out in our warm Hawaiian sun to bask/sun bathe with de-light while our tropical breezes gently dry them to perfection.

No chemicals are involved.

which results in….

100% Kona Coffee PURE which is Freshly Roasted, extraordinarily AromaticSweet & Delicate & Naturally Gourmet!

        
 What is Happening Now?

On August 8, 1988 we bought this coffee farm- it’s now 27 years later and  jeepers- it’s all wonderful!

Late-August- we’ve had numerous storms pass by all due to that El Nino condition which brings rain elsewhere but according to NOAA : “The Pacific Ocean has been extremely active throughout this hurricane season with the most intense storms developing over the Western Pacific. Seven tropical systems have formed or crossed into the Central Pacific basin so far this year.” So we have been living with lots of thunder and lightning. ugh! Rare.

Coffee is doing just fine and the crop is healthy and bigger than last year.

We’re trying to roast only 3 times a week as Bob has so much farm work to get done. If you need an order in a hurry, just let us know and we’ll try our best.

Smithfarms is “open” from Sundays through Thursdays and we often take off from putting orders together on Fridays and Saturdays– to do other work. Just in case you were wondering:)
