MauiGrown™ Coffee is the grower of Ka’anapali Estate Coffee located on the West Maui Mountains near the historic town of Lahaina. The 500-acre estate grows several varieties of Arabica coffees to suit a multitude of palettes. The theory of “quality from seed to cup” best describes the planning and operation of MauiGrown™ Coffee. From 1988 through 2001, the farm was operated by Kaanapali Estate Coffee, a diversified Agriculture project of Pioneer Mill Sugar Company. As director of Agricultural research for Pioneer Mill at the time, James (Kimo) Falconer was instrumental in the genesis of this coffee. Falconer’s dream was to revive the coffee farm. His hard work and dedication led to the establishment of MauiGrown Coffee, Inc. in 2003 and its first crop in 2004.
