Farm History

In 2017, Mathias Abellera launched his 8-acre coffee farm as a retirement project in the Pear Tree area of the Ka’ū District. You could say coffee farming is in his blood; two of Abellera’s brothers already were tending their own coffee farms in Ka’ū. He planted Guatemalan Typica, Old Hawaiian Typica, and Red and Yellow Caturra from several sources — including seedlings from his sister-in-law, Lorie Obra at Rusty’s Hawaiian.

“I like coming up to my farm, and I really enjoy the processing of coffee, the drying, the soaking,” Abellera says. “All the steps to making the coffee from the cherry stage until it’s in the GrainPro bag.”
