We're happy to announce that we've brought on a single-estate Kona coffee to headline our French Press program: Niumalu Farms. Niumalu produces only a small amount of coffee annually. The farm is comprised largely of lava rock, which creates a coffee cherry with rich, complex flavors. The roast level can be described as Full City, or slightly darker than Medium.
Niumalu is owned and operated by the Keana'aina family. Jacob Keana'aina in the Kahala Sales Dept grew up on the farm, and was able to secure this very special coffee for us. Niumalu is my fathers middle name which means shade under the coconut tree.

What is Localicious Hawaii?
Nearly twenty-five years ago, the Hawai‘i Regional Cuisine movement, brought together twelve local chefs to promote Hawai‘i as a food destination and to promote an agricultural network so that chefs and restaurants had access to locally grown produce. Today, hundreds of restaurants support our local farmers, ranchers and fishermen and we want to make sure the public understands the important role they play in supporting local agriculture. The goal of Localicious Hawai‘i is to raise $50,000 for HAF’s Veggie U program.
