Hula Daddy Kona Coffee written up in the January 2010 Hawaii Magazine

Hula Daddy Kona Coffee is familiar to HAWAII Magazine subscribers who read the January/February 2010 issue feature story “Kona in a Cup.” Owners Lee Paterson and Karen Jue’s farm in the heart of the Big Island of Hawaii’s Kona Coffee Belt has produced some of the most award-winning coffee roasts on the Island since 2002. In 2008, Hula Daddy’s “Kona Sweet”-one of several coffee varieties the company roasts-scored 97 out of 100 from industry buying guide Coffee Review. Only five other coffees worldwide have ever achieved that score.

We’ve been longtime fans of Lee and Karen’s crisp, flavorful 100% Kona-grown Hula Daddy coffees. We’re grateful to Hula Daddy for rewarding our Reader Photo of the Week winners with such a great prize.

Excerpt from HAWAII Magazine January/February 2010 article:

My first stop of the morning, Hula Daddy coffee offers … . From a rocking chair on the veranda of the Hula Daddy’s retail shop, you can gaze on owners Lee Paterson and Karen Jue’s 11-acre farm, and, far downslope, the Kailua-kona coastline, all the while samping as many cups of their fabulous brewed raosts as you want…

Spend a day tasting coffee from farms along the belt, and you”ll quickly find that all Kona coffees are not created equal. Cups of joe I sampled were consistently good, but not alwaysas crisp and complex as Hula Daddy.’s roasts.
