The history of Hawaiian coffee is an interesting tale. Coffee trees are not native to Hawaii and were introduced in the year 1825. The trees were brought to Hawaii from Brazil. The trees were then grown in Oahu and later on other surrounding islands.
Eventually, the trees were relocated to the island of Kona, and as they say the rest is history. Kona is a very popular brand of Hawaiian coffee.
Kona is referred to as the "Big Island" of Hawaii. Today, the Big Island of Kona produces over 2 million pounds of Hawaiian coffee annually.
During the 1900's Hawaiian coffee began to sprout on other islands as well. Some of these islands are Maui, Kauai, and Molokai.
Like other coffees, Hawaiian coffee comes in a variety of flavors and also comes in decaffeinated varieties as well. Hawaiian coffee may also be certified organic. Some of the flavors that Kona Hawaiian coffee are:
· 100% Kona Coffee

When you see the words "estate grown" or "estate farm" used to describe Hawaiian coffee, what it means is that the coffee was grown on an individual's estate farm. This implies that the estate grown coffee is original to that owner's estate.
If your local store doesn't carry Hawaiian coffee, you can find it in a specialty coffee shop or even purchase it online. With modern day technology and the advancement of the Internet, you can even purchase Hawaiian coffee straight from the company's that grow it. But beware, if you are purchasing coffee direct from Hawaii, you will have to pay shipping costs, be sure to calculate the cost of shipping before making your final purchase.
