Holiday Gift Guide 2023
Celebrate the “Kona Days” with Gifts from Greenwell Farms
The holiday season is here and what better way to say “Happy Holidays” than with a gift from Greenwell Farms? Whether you’re gifting to someone as a sweet reminder of your time on the Big Island together, looking to introduce your loved one to a great cup of coffee or simply sharing the joy of a small family farm in the heart of Kona, here are a few ideas to help you celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with the ones you love most. Happy Kona Days from all of us here at Greenwell Farms!
You can’t go wrong with a bag of our 100% Kona Coffee beans, ground or whole, to spread “holiday cheers.” Here are a few of our suggestions if you’re looking to introduce loved ones to Kona Coffee, wow a coffee expert or reinspire someone’s morning routine.
For roasts that truly embody the spirit of the Big Island, we have two Classic Kona Coffee suggestions:
- Full City Roast: A favorite among both coffee connoisseurs and casual coffee drinkers, Fully City is the emblem of what makes Kona Coffee so unique. Its medium-dark roast profile creates a wide spectrum of taste experiences including hints of citrus, nuttiness, cream, vanilla, caramel and chocolate all softly balanced and joined together.
- Peaberry: This 100% Kona Coffee roast is exceptionally rare – it’s created when one of the two hemispheric seed halves that occupy the inside of a coffee cherry doesn’t fertilize and results in a single oval seed lovingly referred to as a “Peaberry.” Adding to its uniqueness, peaberries roast differently, revealing different characteristics of the coffee which our certified coffee grading team describes as “complex and delicate with bright acidity, notes of cherry, citrus fruit and a naturally sweet after taste.” If you’re buying a gift for a tea lover, this is a great choice as the experience Peaberry delivers has been compared to drinking a high-quality tea!
For the coffee experts in your life, a bag of one of our Specialty & Estate Kona Coffees will certainly do the trick! With its elegant coffee tastes, notes of rich dark chocolate and balanced flavor palette, Greenwell Farms Private Reserve is a much-loved gift that people love to share during the holidays and other special occasions. We love this review from one of our customers, Stephen L., “It’s a rich and nutty coffee with an almost mocha finish. It’s a great brew to savor alone or with dessert.”
For the person that swears by coffee creamer and delights in a sweeter cup of coffee, our Flavored Kona Coffee roasts will certainly be a treat for the tastebuds! We have three delightful options to choose from: Autumn Spice (our version of a PSL), Macadamia Nut and Chocolate Macadamia Nut. If you’re going for a Big Island classic, the Macadamia Nut is always a fan favorite. It’s crafted with our best-selling Full City Roast as the base, infused with the essence of Macadamia Nuts for an aromatic and softly flavored coffee. As our customer Scot P. shared in his review, “This coffee is what I happily get out of bed for every morning.”
Organic Hawaiian Honey
Sweeten up the season with some local Hawaiian honey! Great for teas, toast, marinades, cheese and more, we offer a selection of our neighbor Big Island Bees’ fine honey that’s become a staple item in our gift shop. Fittingly known as the “Hawaiian Christmas Berry Tree” the Wilelaiki Blossom Honey contains notes of spice and sweet coconut which adds an extra dimension of flavor to anything it’s paired with. For a little variety, there’s a three-pack of honey which includes the Christmas Berry honey, Ohia Lehua honey and Macadamia Nut Blossom honey to showcase a range of Big Island flavor. This honey sampler, plus a wooden charcuterie board, makes a thoughtful gift for any wine and cheese lover or your friend who loves to host guests.
Nuts and Chocolates
One of the most requested and received souvenirs from a beautiful Big Island vacation? Macadamia Nuts, of course! For those that prefer a savory snack, our Roasted Macadamia Nuts are lightly salted and perfectly roasted for that delightful crunch. On the sweet side, chocolate fans will rejoice over our Chocolate Covered Macadamia Nuts, available in Milk Chocolate or Semi-Sweet Chocolate. Feeling adventurous? Pick up a few bags of our Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans, which features our fresh-roasted Peaberry coffee beans covered in elegant semi-sweet chocolate or white chocolate. Caution – these are gifts you may want to give in private so your loved one doesn’t have to share!
Accessories and Gift Cards
Gift your friend or family member their new favorite coffee mug with our sleek 20-ounce mug. The coffee cup, which features the Greenwell Farms logo, is diner style with a hefty handle and thick-walled ceramic to keep coffee warm. Of course, it’s dishwasher friendly for easy cleanup. This mug paired with a Greenwell Farms gift card is a thoughtful holiday present that invites people to personally select the 100% Kona Coffee Roast or Hawaiian treat that they’ll love. It’s also great preparation for those newlyweds who have a Big Island honeymoon coming up or someone with plans to travel to the Big Island, as they can use the gift card toward one of our Coffee Tours and Tastings, Art of Coffee: Manual Brewing Class or at our onsite gift shop. We’re grateful that our guests have called our farm tours “one of their favorites on the Big Island” for years as we love sharing our coffee knowledge and beautiful farm with any and all who will visit!
This holiday season, we want to wish you and your loved ones love, happiness and everything that brings joy to your spirit. For us, that’s family, farming and the magical state of Hawaii. Oh, and coffee, of course! Thank you for supporting our family farm and sharing in our passion for a truly great cup of coffee. May you share a mug or two with those near and dear to your heart wherever you find yourself over the holidays – by the warmth of a fire, enjoying the Hawaiian breeze or under the stars in mid 60-degree weather.
