Ka'u - Ali'i Hawaiian Hula Hands
Francis and Trinidad Marques were two of the original coffee farmers in Ka'u. Once the sugar mill plantation closed in the early 1990s, Francis began work planting his coffee farm. The Ali'i Hawaiian Hula Hands comprises two properties - one is 15 acres, the other 5. Francis and Trinidad have operated their original coffee farm for over 20 years and grow Red Caturra, Typica and Yellow Caturra varieties - this lot is dried in parchment and is a mix of red Caturra and Typica.
