The KCFA held a successful event at the Made in Hawaii Festival on Oahu, from August 17-19, 2018 with over 40,000 attendees. The KCFA booth was beautifully decorated with lots of handouts, displays and bags of coffee.
Big Mahalo to Chris Coleman KCFA Board member, for generously donating the entire Booth cost to the KCFA. The complete KCFA membership was invited to participate with their farm’s coffee, with 80% of the net sales going to the individual farmer and 20% of the net going to the KCFA. Member farms that chose to be part of the Made In Hawaii Festival were: Kona Kaffe, Wailapa, Lion’s Gate Farm, Kula Mana Farm, Maluhia, Kings Cup, Sugai, Buddha’s Cup and KCFA coffee.
A big Mahalo also to our volunteers who gave their time and their money to go to Oahu on KCFA’s behalf: Armando and Karina Rodriguez, Chris Coleman, Kay Dixon, Mila (of Maluhia), Suzanne Shriner, Sarah Fogelstrom and Manny Ochoa.
As part of the Festival, KHON2 TV did a live interview with President Suzanne Shriner who offered a 10% Kona Blend vs. a 100% Kona “Taste Test” on camera, resulting in the TV reporter tasting the obvious difference. Click here to view.
