KAANAPALI - While owners at Ka`anapali Coffee Farms are snug in their beds, it's not visions of sugarplums that are dancing in their heads this holiday season but plump, red coffee cherries! The success of this year's coffee harvest and a wonderful life steeped in West Maui's rich agricultural lore are giving cause for celebration.
At Ka`anapali Coffee Farms, they are in the final weeks of harvesting, and oh what a year it's been! This year's harvest of their four exceptional varieties, including the famous Maui Mokka, is anticipated to be record-setting. Perfect timing, too, with Maui Mokka recently selected as one of the premium coffees to be served in-flight on Japan Airline's Hawaii routes.
But there's more than meets the eye at Ka`anapali Coffee Farms. For some, it's the spectacular panoramic views of the West Maui Mountains and the neighboring islands of Molokai and Lanai. For others, it's the distinction of a private community offering four- to seven-acre estate lots with your own manicured coffee orchard reminiscent of a Napa Valley scene. But all agree that it is the lifestyle that sets this community apart - a tranquil oasis that blends the best of old world charm with modern day sensibilities. It is home.

"The Kaanapali climate is the best, and combined with the Ka`anapali Coffee Farms' beautiful open spaces surrounded by amazing coffee plantings and great ocean and mountain views, what more could anyone desire in a place to live?" said Jack and Lyn Muegge, two of Ka`anapali Coffee Farms' newest owners who will break ground on their dream home soon.
Roger and Joyce Amadon, homeowners who are enjoying the community's relaxed lifestyle, couldn't agree more. "There is simply nothing like it. It is the best!"
