Celebrate the History of Kona Coffee

Coffee has been growing in Kona for nearly 200 years. For 10 days in November, Kona’s famous coffee will be celebrated at the Kona Coffee Festival.

This year’s events are slated from November 3 – 12, 2023 and will honor Kona’s history through art, food, and fun! The festival’s mission is to preserve, perpetuate, and promote Kona’s unique coffee heritage.

Kona coffee is hand picked and winners of this year’s Cupping Competition will be announced for the best 100% Kona coffee. Awards will be given to growers and/or processors based on variety, cultivation method, processing method, and commercial inoculants.
