These Kona Coast area maps shows the major Hawaii coffee region "coffee belt" on the Island of Hawaii in brown. The coffee maps show cities and towns and land ownership in different colors of green. Major and minor roads are shown in heavy gray lines. Only the very largest Kona Coast Land Owner text is shown since many of the ownership polygons are very small.
The best growing land is between Kalaoa and Ho Okena. This area gives you the following regular and organic grown beans. These Kona bean grades that are grown are the "Extra Fancy Beans", the "Select Beans" , "Fancy Beans", "Number 1 Beans", "Peabody Kona Coffee Beans" and the "Prime Beans". All these grades of beans can be grown organically or with commercial fertilizers. However, due to the increasing demand on the Kona coast for housing and resort land, many of the most valuable parcels for growing coffee now have houses, hotels, and golf courses parked on them. This fact just makes labor intensive coffee even more of a treasure to drink and enjoy when you have a cup.
To find Kona plantations that give tours of their grounds and show bean harvesting techniques, it is best to call ahead. Most of these farms and plantations can be found using Google Maps and searching coffee area on the map. Many farms are located on private dirt and gravel roads and driveways or dead end roads and the owners don't want to give tours. Many only give tours during harvest or at certain times of the year. However, a lot of growers are now selling their regular Kona coffee and organic brands online and are more open to public inquiries and tours since they want to promote their brand. It is worth at least one tour of a grower when your on the Big Island. You will enjoy your cup of brew that much more seeing how the plants are cared for and how the beans are watched over and picked. A lot of time and work goes into growing both the regular and organic red beans.
