Kona's Thriving Coffee Culture
One of our favorite parts about living in Kona is being able to celebrate the traditions and diversity that make Hawaii special. This week it’s been all about celebrating Kona Coffee and its historical significance at the 46th Annual Kona Coffee Cultural Festival, being held through Sunday, November 13, 2016.
Coffee continues to have an economic foothold here in Kona, with approximately 650 farms cultivating coffee in the Kona district and representing approximately 95% of the coffee produced on the island [source: konacoffeefest.com].
