Kona Old Style Organic Coffee

HISTORY OF KUAIWI FARM
Kuaiwi farm is a wonderful example of an intact piece of the pre-contact Kona field system. The kuaiwi are low rock mounds, which separate the kihapai, or growing fields. These are still easily identifiable on our farm. The last ali'i to own this land was Keohokalole, the mother of King David Kalakaua. After the mahele, it was owned by the Rev. John D. Paris, who then sold it to H.N. Greenwell. The Greenwell family leased the land to Mr. Kunitaro Motomura who hand cleared the land and planted the coffee trees circa 1900.
