This award winning Kona Geisha coffee is exceedingly rare. Beyond being hand-harvested and meticulously produced by the Stille family at their Monarch Estate Farm in Holualoa, it's also produced using sustainable farm practices and without harmful chemicals.

Geisha coffee is a variety that originated in Ethiopia, renowned for the aromatic, complex, floral and fruit forward profile it produces. Due to rarity and demand, Geisha coffees can reach up to $600 per lb, and retail in cafes for $9-$18/ cup.

To cultivate this rare Kona Geisha the family practices cover-cropping, composting, and interplanting to protect the ecosystem and attract butterflies, bees and pollinators to their land.

Their commitment to maintaining healthy soil and perfect harvesting has paid off in the form of their numerous awards, like earning Grand Champion in the 2018 Hawaii Coffee Association Cupping Competition, and 1st place in the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival.

NOTICE THE BUBBLES...

See those bubbles? When your coffee blooms with bubbles it’s a sign that it’s been recently roasted. The fresher the coffee, the more intensity you’ll get because great flavors and aromas fade over time.

☛ Our coffees are roasted-to-order each week, then packaged and shipped immediately, and arrive with the roast dates stamped on the bag.
