We produce only 100% Kona Coffee here at our Family Farm. Our operation is "Certified Organic"
(Producer and Processor): 100% Pesticide Free, 100% Herbicide Free,
100% Natural. Of about 750 Kona Coffee Farms, only about 50 are
Certified Estates, and only about 40 are Certified Organic. We are both.
Our "Farm Manager" is Karen Johanna Lyman Eckert (now 5). We named our
farm after her 6th generation grandparents, David and Sarah Lyman. They came to the Big Island as Missionaries in 1832.
They built the first wooden house on the Island (now Lyman Museum in
Hilo) and founded a school. Her daddy Hans Eckert is the only full-time
worker on the farm, and boy, is it ever full-time! Her mom Marsha holds
the purse strings.
We are doing our best to produce for you the Best Coffee in all of Kona, "a bright cup", and we have won multiple awards.
We only work with, grow, and process our OWN Estate Coffee. No other
coffee enters the farm or mill. No chance to have our own impeccable
quality product diluted by lesser quality coffees. WE EXCLUSIVELY SELL
FARM DIRECT -- from us to you or your store: no brokers or warehouses to
slow things down. This means our product is ALWAYS FRESH,
and comes to you directly from us. We take our Quality Control Process
very seriously and go through many extra steps to winnow out anything
below the top quality layer (Marsha is ISO 9000 certified and has
trained Hans well). Most coffee producers need 5-6 pounds of Coffee
Cherry to produce one pound of roasted coffee. Here at Lyman Farms, we
winnow so much out that the ratio is 1:8. Our coffee is always Fresh,
Fresh, Fresh. The result is a fantastic cup of coffee: mild, with hints of Mandarin Orange and Milk Chocolate. Directly from our family to yours, and THAT makes us feel good.
We passed all
inspections from our organic certification agency HOFA and the Hawaii
Dept. of Health (roasting, packaging). We now are the proud owners of a "Certified Kitchen"
New Product now available here:"Kona Natural/Kona Sweet"organic coffee. A superb speciality coffee made from carefully
hand-selected super-ripe cherry, then sun-dried whole in their skin,
picked over and over again, and then dry-milled. It takes ELEVEN pounds
of Cherry to produce ONE pound of roasted Kona Sweet. Silky mouthfeel! See more...
