Coffee Farming Girl

About 200 years ago, coffee came to Hawaii from Guatemala.  It found a home that it not only grew, it really grew. Today Kona Coffee is known around the coffee World for being the best. About the same time, Chinese immigrants were working the sugar cane fields and pineapple plantations. Coffee seemed to be a better fit; the Chinese were some of the first to farm coffee. Now you jump to today. Joy is carrying on the Chinese tradition here on the Big Island as a Coffee farmer. We have a lot of rain, everything grows fast and tall. To help keep the farm maintained, the biggest job is weed cutting between the trees. Joy loves this work, and loves the new, powerful weed trimmer we bought. I just keep it filled with gas and let her go.   aloha
