April 21, 2016•51 min
Hawaii is the only U.S. state that grows coffee, and the best is from Kona on the Big Island, home to 600 small farms (average 6 acre orchards). Scott Burr, Founder of Carta Coffee, left the wine business to buy a coffee farm. At his Nolyssa Farms, Scott's approach is hands-on to growing and roasting his beans. We discuss what make 100% Kona coffee prized among connoisseurs and its production as well as its challenges from "knockoff" blends. Carta Coffee is available at www.cartacoffee.com.
