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 June of 2022.

With approximately 27.19% of our orchard land area now mowed, planted with cover crop, and/or treated with compost, we are well on our way to achieving our commitment. Based on this pace, we expect to achieve – and exceed – our commitment well ahead of our 2022 target!

We are proud to report that, as of this update, we are nearly halfway through to achieving our commitment to the Sustainable Coffee Challenge. At the time of the development of our commitment, we had between 8-10% of our 3,100 acres dependent on a combination of thermophilic compost and cover crop. We can now report that we have approximately 14.23% of our orchard land area mowed, planted with cover crop, and/or treated with compost. Although achieving our 30% commitment will be challenging, we look forward to the progress that we will continue to make as we strive to exceed our commitment by June of 2022.
