Our Kona Location
Lyman Kona Coffee Farms is just ten minutes (five miles) from Kona International Airport and KonaTown at 2,000 feet above the Kona coastline on the slopes of the Hualalai Volcano. We also operate the Mango Sunset Bed and Breakfast Inn on our farm. Our guests love our location not only for our breathtaking views, but also for the cooler than Kona temperatures. We have the perfect climate year-round for growing Kona Coffee here at Lyman Kona Coffee Farms. The farm size is eight acres and we pamper our 3,200 Kona Typica coffee trees.
Farm Operators Hans and Marsha Eckert
After living in Los Angeles, New York or Europe for decades, we moved to Hawaii permanently in 2003, bought eight acres of jungle and built Lyman Kona Coffee Farms from scratch. We live on our farm with our daughter Karen and our cat Buddha.
Five generations ago, the missionaries David and Sarah Lyman, arrived from Boston on the Big Island, in 1832. They founded the "Hilo School for Boys"
and built the first wooden house, which survives today as the oldest
wooden structure on the Island - as the Mission House of the Lyman
Museum in Hilo. Our daughter is Karen Johanna Lyman Eckert, and David
and Sarah are her sixth generation grand parents. Since Karen is our "farm manager", we named "Lyman Farms" to honor her and Marsha's family. For more information, or to plan a visit to the museum in Hilo, visit The Lyman House and Museum website »
