More than 100,000 readers voted in this year's awards, and we are honored to be named among Hawaii's best once again.

Kauai Coffee also took first place in the Kauai Island category for Best Farm Tour and Best Store for Souvenirs. "Kauai Coffee is an 'ohana, and this honor is one we couldn't achieve without our dedicated, hardworking staff and passionate supporters," said Fred Cowell, General Manager of Kauai Coffee. "Earning this recognition for the ninth year in a row is a testament to our efforts to produce high-quality Hawaiian coffee with sustainable farming practices that create healthier soil, reduce fertilizer and herbicide use, and lessen irrigation needs," he continued.

  • Rain Forest Alliance Certified™: The Rainforest Alliance certified seal stands for efficient farm management that reduces soil erosion, water use, pollution, and waste while protecting wildlife and reducing threats to the environment and human health. We preserve our island's natural beauty and biodiversity by practicing sustainable farming methods such as on-site composting, cover crop usage, and water conservation.
  • Fair Trade USA Certified™: Fair Trade Certified goods provide safe working conditions and sustainable livelihoods while protecting the environment and giving back to the communities where coffee is cultivated.
