Greenwell Farms earned First Place Award in Competition

Greenwell Farms has once again won first place in the “Kona Division” of the H.C.A. cupping contest during the Hawaii Coffee Association’s 16th Annual Conference and Trade Show held this past weekend at the Hilton Waikoloa on the Big Island of Hawaii. This year’s H.C.A. cupping competition was judged by a panel of coffee experts from across the U.S.A., including  Shawn Hamilton of Java City Roasters, Warren Muller of Inter American Coffee, Paul Thornton of Coffee Bean International, Lindsey Bolger of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Jay Isais and Jesse Martinez of Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. “The cup quality and diversity has improved every year”, said chief judge Hamilton. “We’re experiencing flavors that would never have been associated with Hawaiian coffee in years past. Everyone is upping their game.” Newly re-elected H.C.A. President Tom Greenwell said, “There were some fantastic coffees in the competition.   The conference also featured an industry trade show, guest speakers, grower’s reports, diverse educational seminars, a hands-on cupping workshop and a latte art competition.
