Meet Kawena, Greenwell Farms Tour Guide

Greenwell Farms provides farm tours led by expert guides who share the rich history and craft behind producing Greenwell Farms 100% Kona Coffee. Meet Kawena, he will give you a taste of the farm in a brief interview below.  

Aloha! My name is Kawena, I am a guide here at Greenwell Farms.

What’s your favorite place on the farm?

This is our facility called the wet mill, where we receive coffee from local farmers, the whole process begins here. Our latest piece of equipment is called a laser optical sorter which uses laser technology to kick out the over-ripe or under-ripe cherries.  Then, it will go through a soaking time and a drying up on the decks here. When this is done perfectly, it helps to assure that you get the best quality coffee that you can.

What’s a question you are frequently asked?

How long does the coffee last…and I usually respond by saying that it depends on the person.  So, let’s say if you are a connoisseur of coffee, like a wine taster or a coffee taster, that might be 2 weeks maybe 3 weeks for optimum flavor.  There are people who have less sensitive palettes, such as myself. I don’t consider myself a connoisseur of coffee but I do like coffee, maybe 4 to 6 weeks and then of course you have that segment of the population that can go much, much longer.  In general, we usually tell people 4 weeks or so.

What’s your favorite Greenwell Farms product?

One of my favorite offerings here on Greenwell Farms is our Chameleon Coffee.  The Chameleon Coffee is comprised of 3 different roasts, it’s a medium, full and dark roast put together…and we also do have live Chameleons that live on the farm which is a popular attraction for our visitors and guests, but just to let you know we do not use any of those in the Chameleon Coffee.
