Topic: Coffee in Maui (4 msgs / 107 lines)
1) From: Mejia, Carlos
Hello fellow roasters.  It's been a long time since I've posted to the list but... I'm still here and still roasting!   Actually, I'm currently on vacation in Maui and wondering if anyone has any information about coffee plantations here that I might visit and perhaps some greens to take back.  Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

I have a couple of fond coffee memories from a Maui trip in January '07:
Maui Tropical Plantation: This is an ultra-groomed, bus-tour type of
experience. You can see coffee growing and one of the stations to visit is a
roasting shed where the roaster gave us a little demo. after the crowd faded
away he spent some time with us answering my questions and talking about
being a professional roaster on Maui. He was quite enthusiastic. The
conversation was the memorable part. The gardens were very pretty and the
restaurant was good. . 
A hole-in-the-wall in Paia: We were spending the afternoon in this great
little town. We thought we would go to Fresh Mint Vegetarian restaurant for
dinner. It was a few blocks up Baldwin Ave, off the center of town. Right
around the restaurant there was a little shack-type coffee house. I got a
cup of drip. There were about 4 stools, the guy could be compared to Willie
Nelson, and we were the only not-regulars in there. The coffee was the best
I have ever had. After that cup I couldn't be settle for standard coffee
shop stuff. I got a Gene Cafe, I got a Silvia. I haven't matched that one
cup yet but I'm having fun trying. I looked around the web for a reference
to the place but I couldn't find any. If yoiu are going up Baldwin it is on
the left side towards the end of the commercial area. It's past the bakery
place.

Check out the MauiGrown coffee shop under the smokestack in Lahaina.  They
roast coffee from the Kaanapali Farms, which you can tour.  Tom carried
their Maui Moka, which is a very tiny bean with a wonderful chocolate
flavor.  I strongly recommend it.  The people at the store are real coffee
people and are very nice.
There are also some small farms "upcountry", but I don't know of any
offering tours.
Have a great time!
