Since I am a coffee-holic the richness of a good coffee without bitterness makes the world of difference to me, especially that first morning cup! So far in my search I have found Maui Coffee Roasters to be the best. We were fortunate enough to meet Seymour when we were looking into growing our own coffee beans to enjoy. He was an incredible man.
Congratulations to Olinda Organic Farms for winning Best Overall Coffee out of 107 entries at the Maui Seed to Cup coffee festival. The festival took place at the Maui Plantation Farm. Maui coffee is a vibrant high demand industry, but with the high cost of real estate many farmers are worried.
