Growing Coffee on the Hawaiian Island of Maui
At least 500 acres of coffee are being cultivated on several farms on the island of Maui, mostly on former sugarcane lands. These coffee farms range from an organic coffee farm in Hana, and farms ranging from the hills of Haleakala volcano all the way to Kaanapali.
The largest Maui coffee plantation is run by MauiGrown Coffee (TM) and is located on the slopes of the West Maui Mountains just above Lahaina Town. For more information see MauiGrown Coffee at Kaanapali Estates.
News in March 2017 indicates that a bill is being passed that would grant as much as $13,000,000 to develop “hundreds of acres” of coffee in central Maui to increase output. Target sites are near the Haliimaile area, but no exact location is specified.
Ono Organic Farms is located along the famous scenic and twisting road to Hana on Maui’s eastern shore and produces a relatively small amount of organic Arabica coffee as well as cacao (chocolate) a multitude of organic tropical fruits. Tours of their certified organic farm are available by appointment.
