This Saturday the Shops at Wailea are hosting the Grown on Maui Coffee Festival! I JUST found out and am so excited! They had one in August 2012 and it was fascinating. It runs from 8:30am-4pm in the fountain courtyard. This event is FREE.
This year’s theme is Meet the Coffee Farmers – Life on a Coffee Farm. There will be samples, roasting exhibitions, lots of information and entertainment.
The Maui Coffee Association was started in 2005 and has grown from just a few farms to over 32! I can’t wait to see (and taste) all the variety!
A little word to the wise…. After about 5 samples of strong black coffee last time, my whole body was buzzing…. This time I’ll bring a little something to snack, or at least a bottle of water to dilute the wonderful caffeine in my tummy. I will also bring cash to buy bags of my ‘newly found’ favorite coffees.
See you there!!
