KALALEA (pronounced kah-lah-lay-ah) means outstanding or achievement. The word in Hawaiian indicates a single tree standing alone proudly on a mountain, but also excellence in work. We are very proud to bring you this excellent coffee, grown on one of the best family-owned organic farms in Kona, Hawaii.

As of 2020, this farm will no longer be producing coffee. Therefore, this product will be discontinued when current inventory runs out. Order soon to make sure you get a chance to try it! It’s one of our all-time favorites.

We ship freshly roasted whole beans for optimal flavor and freshness.
Kalalea is offered in our Medium and Pele roasts.

“This coffee’s flavor is full of chocolate with tones of sweet red berries and apricots. It’s full bodied, well balanced, with an aroma and fragrance of chocolate and berries and a lingering butter finish. Smooth, without being tarnished by acidic or bitter notes.”

Coffee Origin

Coffee Farm in Kona, Hawai‘i


This 12-acre lush estate is located in South Kona. Like most land here in Kona, the rocky lava rocks and jungle had to be bulldozed. Three years later, 250 Sharwil avocado trees were planted. Then, between 1995 and 2000, a total of 3,000 coffee trees were planted, patch by patch, among the avocado trees which provide natural shade. Three neighborhood farms have won cupping contests. Over 6 inches of soil has been created through organic practices. The entire 12 acres is Certified Organic, and is cared for by three generations of family members.
