Kona Snow (Coffee Blossoms)

These photos are from the late February bloom.  The multitude of delicate, white flowers, known as “Kona snow,” emit a lovely, fairly subtle, sweet-smelling fragrance similar to jasmine; it’s not an overwhelming olfactory experience.

Our farm is at the southern end of the Mamalahoa Kona Heritage Corridor.  My husband and I like to cycle along the curvy Old Mamalahoa Hwy, and it is a heavenly experience to ride here when the coffee trees are blossoming/peaking.  Farm after farm.  No shell of a car separating you from the sights and smells of Kona nature.
