Greenwell Farms earns “Gold Medal” at “Cream of the Crop” Competition!

 

 

Greenwell Farms earned a First Place Gold Medal last Saturday at the “Cream of the Crop” competition.  “Cream of the Crop” is an annual event held at the Four Season’s Hualalai Resort.  This year Greenwell Farms entered our newest Chameleon Coffee.  Chameleon Coffee is a 100% Kona Coffee named after the family of Chameleons that live in an Orange tree near our Retail Store.  Chameleon Coffee is 1/3 Medium Roast, 1/3 Full City Roast, and 1/3 Dark Roast.  These three different roasts are carefully combined by our Master Roasters.  The resulting blend of these three different roasts creates a very distinctive and pleasing coffee.  And it is now another award winning First Place Gold Medal winning 100% Kona Coffee from Greenwell Farms!  Mahalo.

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.

A White Obelisk Monument marks the spot . . .

Greenwell Farms is in Kealakekua on the Big Island of Hawaii and is near the site where Captain James Cook met his fate on February 14, 1779.   A White Obelisk Monument marks the spot just a few steps away from the shore of Kealakekua Bay.  This land, though in Hawaii, was given to the United Kingdom and is officially a part of the UK.  Captain Cook’s Monument is a popular Kayak and Hiking destination.  Many Hikers and Kayakers stop at Greenwell Farms after their morning adventures to rest, relax, and enjoy our 100% Kona Coffee.  I hope that you enjoy the photo.  Mahalo.

Did you know that it snows in Hawaii?

Did you know that it snows in Hawaii?

And it snowed this week on June 1st !  Of course the snow fell up on the mountain tops of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea whose summits are just shy of 14,000 feet.

At Greenwell Farms no snow falls.  We are at about 1,500 feet.  Daily temperatures all year are usually between 75 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit with comfortable and refreshing trade winds.  I often describe it here at Greenwell Farms as eternal spring time.

The Big Island of Hawaii is so varied and diverse.  You are invited to include a relaxing visit to Greenwell Farms as one of your Hawaiian destinations.  Sample and enjoy 100% Kona Coffee.  Take a farm tour of a working Kona Coffee Farm.  It is our sincere goal that your visit as a welcome guest to Greenwell Farms is one of the most enjoyable highlights of your Hawaiian vacation.  Mahalo.
