Highly regarded by many as some of the best coffee in the world, Kona Coffee is native to the lush landscape of the Big Island and offers a smooth, bright flavor. Big Island-based coffee producer, Greenwell Farms, recently introduced the newest innovation of Kona Coffee, called Mamo, which took 20 years to develop with a team of experts and scientists.
The new varietal made its debut at the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival and was produced by breeding two Arabica coffee plants, Maragogype and Mokka. Its name, Mamo, is a Hawaiian word for ‘descendant.’ The new bean helps showcase the unique flavors of the islands and the importance of Hawaiian coffee.
Greenwell Farms has been growing Kona coffee since 1850, attracting both locals and tourists alike to its 85 acres of coffee orchards on the Big Island.
