As the sun breaks over the glorious green slopes of Mauna Loa in Kona, Hawaii, you will find Cancino Family Farm hard at work. The land itself seems to wake up and greet the sun, as the dew mist lifts coffee plants perk up after the dark night. Birds, bees, pigs, and a myriad of insects join us as we work.
You see, it isn’t just a bit of land that provides the delicious coffee we grow; it is the unique environment of Kona that infuses a richness in every bean. Mauna Loa, the largest active volcano in the world, is known for its rich volcanic soil. Farming is a noble effort, intertwining people’s lives with the land to form a bond unlike any other. Work and reward go hand in hand when it comes to farming. It is one of the vocations that we deeply respect because successful crops depend on courage, planning, learning, dedication and a lot of cooperation from mother nature.
