Kauai Coffee Company believes that strong soil is of utmost importance to sustainability; healthy soil provides coffee with a strong foundation for growth and is expected to allow for decreased synthetic fertilizer and water usage. With 8 – 10% of Kauai Coffee Company’s 3,100 acres already dependent on a combination of thermophilic compost and cover crop for soil remediation, Kauai Coffee Company vows to increase the orchard land area treated with thermophilic compost and cover crop to 30% by December 2023 (target date updated; originally June of 2022).

With the challenges outlined in our last update continuing on, we are proud of the progress that we have maintained - and slightly improved upon - since our last update. Since that time, we have increased the total area mowed/treated, and are currently mowing/treating 11.00% of our total available acreage, working diligently towards our goal of 30% despite these many challenges.
