Kailua-Kona, HI – The public is invited to the Kona Coffee & Tea farm in Holualoa on Saturday, September 17, 2022, from 8:30am-12:30pm, for a free, family-friendly First Harvest event. This is the eighth annual First Harvest. The community is invited to help pick the first coffee of the season and learn about the history and process of Kona coffee.
After eight months of developing from blossoms, the first coffee cherry is ready for harvest.

Our farm manager will share about the journey of the Kona coffee bean from farm to cup. Following this, everyone will be outfitted with picking gear and the picking will begin.
All coffee cherry will be collected by Kona Coffee & Tea upon picking to be milled, dried, and roasted. Prizes will be awarded to picking teams who have picked the ripest coffee cherry, the youngest picker, the oldest picker, and more. At noon, a light lunch will be provided to all participants.
