More About Our Farm


We produce only 100% Kona Coffee here at our Family Farm. Our whole operation is 100% Chemical Pesticide Free, 100% Chemical Herbicide Free, 100% Natural. We named our farm after David and Sarah Lyman. They came to the Big Island as Missionaries in 1832. They built the first wooden house on the Island (now center of the Lyman Museum in Hilo) and founded a school. Our daughter is sixth generation Lyman.

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: in 2010 our label won 1st Prize during the Kona Coffee Fest; in 2008 we won the "Cooperator of the Year" award of the 'Kona Soils and Water District"; for 5 years we have been awarded the Gold or Silver Medal of KCC. We only work with, grow, and process our OWN Estate Coffee. No other coffee enters the farm or mill. WE EXCLUSIVELY SELL FARM DIRECT -- from us to you -- including our BnB, the Mango Sunset -- or your store: no brokers or warehouses to slow down the time it needs to get from us to you. This means that our product is ALWAYS FRESH, and comes to you directly from us (we roast twice a week and ship immediately). We take our Quality Control Process very seriously and go through many extra steps to winnow out anything below the top quality layer. Most coffee producers need 7-8 pounds of Coffee Cherry to produce one pound of roasted coffee. Here at Lyman Farms, we winnow so much out that the ratio is 1:9. Our coffee is always 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 ourcertification agency of the Hawaii Dept. of Health (roasting, packaging). We now are the proud owners of a "Certified Kitchen".
  • We use about 2 lbs. of our "Private Reserve" -- our best -- per week in our BnB, the Mango Sunset.
  • Now available here: "Kona Natural" organic coffee. A superb specialty coffee made from carefully hand-selected super-ripe cherry, then sun-dried whole in their skin, in our "Coffee Finish Dryer" -- up to seven days!, and then dry-milled. It takes TEN pounds of Cherry to produce ONE pound of roasted Kona Natural: 50% loss in the Dry Milling process! A whole new spectrum of floral nuances. Silky mouth-feel!
  • We won both the Gold and a Silver Medal at the KCC Cream of the Crop Tasting competition five years in a row. Then we gave up. It's too much work.
