Oklahoma City, OK (PRWEB) November 2, 2005
Announcing the launch of Dr. Paulo’s ‘Ohana Kona Coffee Company, making available fine gourmet Kona coffee beans and macadamia nuts from the exclusive Kona District of Hawai’i.
Today, Dr. Paulo’s Kona Coffee and Macadamia Nut Farms announces the official launch of the company and website, http://www.drpauloskonacoffee.com. Dr. Paulo’s Kona Coffee Company is a grower and roaster of single estate gourmet coffee beans grown on the western slopes of the Hualalai and Mauna Loa volcanoes in the world-renown Kona District of the Big Island of Hawai’i.
“Each cup of Kona coffee from our ‘ohana (family) of farms is as rich as the land on which it was grown,” said Paul Sterling, PhD, owner of Dr. Paulo’s Kona Coffee Company. With the Big Island of Hawai’i being one of the most remote places on earth, situated in the Pacific Ocean, Kona has one of the purest environments in the world for growing coffee. The soils of Hawai’i, being a volcanic island, are extremely rich. In addition to excellent growing elevations ranging from 700 to 2400 feet above sea level, Dr. Paulo’s farms have nearly perfect soil, rainfall, and hours of sunshine and cloud cover.
The Kona coffee region of Hawai’i is the world of the small coffee farm. The state of Hawai’i remains the sole U.S. producer of commercially grown coffee, and Kona coffee is truly rare. There are over 650 coffee farms in Kona with an average farm size of 3 acres. The annual Kona coffee production exceeds 2 million pounds of green (unroasted) coffee beans which represents just a tiny fraction of the total world coffee production.
Since 1999, Sterling has carefully cleared the land, planted new trees using seeds from the most productive trees, cultivated and tended to their growth, and is now harvesting using traditional methods.
“Our ‘ohana and the relationships we have nurtured is what makes our Kona coffee and macadamia nut trees special,” continues Sterling. “Working side by side throughout the entire process ensures quality you can taste.”
Dr. Paulo’s ‘Ohana Kona Coffee Company is a grower and roaster of single estate gourmet coffee beans and premium macadamia nuts grown exclusively on the family of farms located in the Kona District. The Company is committed to providing the finest quality coffee and macadamia nuts in the world while maintaining respect for the traditions and the land on which it is grown.
