Overview

A Cup of Aloha is a heartfelt portrait of the farmers, millers, landowners, merchants, and laborers who struggled to keep themselves and their industry alive. The author traces coffee's history in Hawai'i - from its arrival in Kona in 1828 and the early shift from plantations to family-run farms, to the economic ups and downs generated by the Great Depression, World War II, and the Vietnam War, to Kona's position in the highly competitive specialty coffee market. Through the author's use of oral history interviews, readers will experience day-to-day life on a coffee farm and the challenges, natural and man-made, that inspired innovations and adaptations to the agricultural, economic, and social life in the Kona Coffee Belt.
