Kona Coffee & Tea will hold its Sixth Annual First Harvest on Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020, and the public is invited to attend.
This free, family-friendly event will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Kona Coffee & Tea’s farm in Holualoa. The community is invited to pick the first coffee of the season, participate in picking competitions, and learn about the history and process of Kona coffee.
After eight months of ripening from blossoms, the first coffee cherry is ready for harvest. The morning will start with a light breakfast of 100% Kona coffee, tea, and pastries followed by a picking instruction and short introduction about the coffee’s journey from farm to cup. Participants will then be outfitted with picking gear and the picking will begin.
