West Maui coffee, community find success
KAANAPALI – For almost 15 years, Kimo Falconer and landowner Kaanapali Land Management Corp. have been caring for the coffee orchards that were once part of the old Pioneer Mill operation. Today, nearly 500 acres of coffee fields are thriving on the West Maui Mountains within the premiere agricultural community of Kaanapali Coffee Farms.
For Kimo and Kaanapali Land Management Corp., it’s a dream come true. Thanks to an innovative concept that melds both agriculture and real estate, Kaanapali Coffee Farms is enabling lot owners to have their cake and eat it, too.
While property owners enjoy a leisurely lifestyle and, bar none, the most spectacular views on Maui, veteran farmers care for their coffee orchards that reap MauiGrown Coffee’s exceptional coffee varietals – Yellow Caturra, Red Catuai, Typica and Maui Mokka.
“Demand often exceeds supply, with our coffee varietals selling out each year,” shared Kimo about their coffee that is sought by wholesalers and retail customers statewide, on the U.S. Mainland, as well as internationally. “It’s a nice problem to have, and we are now looking at planting more coffee to meet the demand for our 100% MAUI Origin Coffee.”
Also experiencing success with a high demand and lack of supply is Kaanapali Coffee Farms. Today, only four estate lots remain available for sale. Those who purchase an estate lot to build their dream home, or as an investment, know the real value of this one-of-a-kind agricultural community.
According to Rohn Stark, PB of Platinum Properties Hawaii, the exclusive project broker for the development, “The Kaanapali Coffee Farms offers property owners benefits that no other communities can offer. It’s an opportunity to purchase a four- to five-acre estate lot with your very own coffee orchard, to live the lifestyle you’ve always dreamed, and to be part of an agricultural family that is helping to preserve West Maui’s agricultural legacy. The fact that you’re living on Maui well, that just makes one’s purchase even sweeter.”
