Jean and George Fike started Fike Farms in Honaunau in 1993. In 1998, the Fikes moved their farming activities to Keauhou-Mauka (Holualoa). Mr. Fike planted coffee trees at the Holualoa farm that came from coffee cherries fom his original farm at Honaunau.
To give you a little history, Fike Farms coffee trees are planted on an old a'a lava flow from a volcanic eruption from the Hualalai volcano. The farm begins at a 1600 foot elevation, and ends at about the 2000 foot elevation. At this elevation, it is cool most of the year with a beautiful afternoon mist, or rain that naturally waters the coffee trees.
If you ever wondered why the difference between "regular" and 100% Kona coffee, there are several reasons. First off, the unique soil conditions in the Kona area give the coffee its heavenly aroma and splendid flavor. Second, very few farms in Kona have mechanized operations. Therefore, everything is done by hand--from planting the trees, to picking the cherries, to drying and roasting the coffee beans, and then labeled, bagged, and shipped--all of this is done by very few people who make this their life, their love, and their passion!
We hope you decide to give Fike Farms Coffee a try.
Mahalo (thank you),
