This week, MauiGrown Coffee reported a record harvest of their Arabica coffee varieties grown at the 500-acre Kaanapali Estate. MauiGrown Coffee is the largest individually operated coffee grower in the U.S. and the original and only major producer of 100% MAUI Origin Coffee in the world.
This year's harvest, which totaled in excess of 350,000 lbs of green coffee, exceeded the volume of any prior harvests. The company credits their continued focus on quality as a major contributor to the increase in cherry production.
Since MauiGrown Coffee was established in 2003, the company has been working on revitalizing the coffee plants abandoned by the old Pioneer Mill Company, which closed its doors in 2001. Today, the fruits of their labor can be seen and measured.
