Aloha! Just joined the forum and read the whole coffee forum. I too am a big Hawaii coffee lover. Lots of good information.

I'm about to launch an online store featuring Hawaii Coffee. It is easy to come about the larger coffee companies products. I am interested in smaller farms who would like be available online. I'm putting together an inventory for a launch in 60 days or so and would be curious if there are any Big Island farmers with a wholesale price list?

Any thoughts and opinions are appreciated.

Aloha 808Surfa,

Welcome to the Kona Forum! Are you thinking of sticking with strictly Kona or go with a Kona Blend? How about 100% Pure Hawaiian Coffee grown on the other side of the island?

I can't help you with the farms and farmers but I can help you if need web design and web hosting services. If interested, let me know.

Hi Dave, Any and all coffees from Hawaii. Just looking for the hidden gems out there. I have the web design and hosting covered. It will be international, translate into many languages, do currency exchange, and highly competitive. I look forward to promoting Hawaii coffee in the best way.

I hope you will not offer "blends" since they are nothing else but ripoffs. They contain 90% of the cheapest coffee available anywhere mixed with the lowest grade of Kona coffee. I know Sharky's sell to a few supermarkets at whole sale, you might want to contact Scott the owner. It's the best coffee on the island, I have been drinking it for probably 10 years.

That's Sharky's Coffee and not Sharks. Here is there website: www.sharkyscoffee.com This is a well run family owned company. Demand for their coffee is high due to the quality and price.

What a great idea to launch an online store featuring Hawaii Coffee. I would also love to do something like this but I am a newbie and at the moment I am trying to set up my first website. At the moment I am looking for a web host and some friends of mine recommended IX webhosting. Does someone uses their services too? Are you satisfied. I would really appreciate your help. Thanks in advance.

The only problems with Sharky's is that they don't sell decaf and they don't sell green beans.

They used to sell green beans. Maybe if you e-mail Scott he will sell you some?

The problem is the decaf. Its not something they can just do without a separate investment, it's not like pulling some green beans off the line and bagging them.

You should have seen the looks when my wife tried to order a cup in France? Lucky we got out alive.

Go to Starbucks and ask for a "Why Bother?" It's a decaf non-fat latte.

Decaf?! You can't even get "American Cafe" in most of Europe where espresso rules.

This was in a hotel. I don't think I've ever not been able to get coffee in a hotel. Now restaurants - that's a different matter.

But then I was in Vienna when the first Starbucks opened. If I remember my geography correctly, it was in the ring near the Sacher Hotel. You couldn't even get close to the place it was so packed.
