Springtime on the Sugai Kona Coffee farm is one of my favorite times of the year. After the chores of winter are completed including pruning the trees, fertilizing and general farm maintenance we are rewarded by the coffee blooming. It is a beautiful sight to look out over the Kona coffee groves in full bloom, nicknamed "Kona Snow" as the whole mountainside is covered with  a blanket of these snow white blossoms. It is such a feeling of renewal as the sound of bees buzzing from blossom to blossom busy pollinating the crop and the lovely scent of the flowers drifts along on the morning breeze. What a beautiful sense of hope this season inspires with the promise of good harvest ahead and a feeling that all is right in the world...or at least, on the Sugai Kona Coffee farm.
