farm lies at 1,470 feet elevation right in the middle of the Kona Heritage
Corridor (aka the Kona Coffee Belt) and we feel that this elevation and soil
content combine to produce an incredible tasting 100% Kona Coffee. Many feel
that the coffee grown in this particular area of Kona produces the best coffee
of the region.
View Estate rests on 3 acres of land on the steep volcanic slopes of Hualalai.
We have 2 acres planted in coffee. This land has had coffee planted on it for
30 years but the previous owners never sold their coffee to the retail market.
After tasting our coffee for the first time we thought that it was a shame not
to share it so we created our own brand and labeled it Kona View Coffee.
coffee trees are Kona Typica which is a strain of Coffea Arabica. We dry
process and grade all sizes of our beans separately and they all go on a
gravity table to separate any beans of each size that are not the proper
density. We further hand sort all our our beans before and after roasting them.
coffee cherry is picked from August through December. The product is 100% Kona
Coffee and is a Certified Estate coffee through the Kona Coffee Farmers
Association. This means that all steps of the coffee process from picking to
roasting have been under our direct and documented control and no other beans
have been used. We are members of the Kona Coffee Farmers Association which
helps promote 100% Kona Coffee.
process our cherry three different ways: pulped natural, wet process, wet
process/fermented to offer different flavor profiles to our coffee, and are one
of only a few farms in Kona to do this. We supply a very unique Single Origin
100% Kona coffee Espresso roast called "Sweet Waves" to Daylight Mind
here in Kona and also at the Queen's Marketplace in Waikoloa. Sweet Waves is
comprised of 3 separate roasts with differing flavor profiles to build
complexity in the cup. We use all three of our differently processed beans to
build this very rare Single Origin Espresso that many feel is one of the best
in the world.
of our coffee is roasted on premise in our state of the art coffee Roastery.
It is a full commercial workspace and features a Giesen 6 Kilo drum
roaster. Giesen is considered by many in the specialty coffee industry to be
the ultimate artisanal coffee roaster. Our roasting is computer aided and we
use Cropster for our data logging. We can store all roast profiles for later
reference. We also are honored to provide the roasting for the Featured Farm
Program at Daylight Mind where we help find the best small coffee farms in Kona
and feature them at both of Daylight Mind's restaurants on a rotating basis. We
now roast to order any day of the week and also have a coffee of the month club
where we will send you coffee on a regular basis.
