MEDIA RELEASE

While Hilo Coffee Mill has been producing and roasting quality coffees for more than 11 years, great coffee has been grown on Hawaii Island for more than 180 years.

In 1898 there were nearly 6000 acres producing coffee between Hilo Town and Volcano Village. Hilo Coffee Mill hopes to inspire more coffee farmers to produce quality Hawaiian coffee.

Beyond the bean however, Hilo Coffee Mill supports local agriculture by hosting a farmers market, and can now get those fresh healthy products to more members within the community.

Through a partnership and grant in cooperation with The Kohala Center, Hilo Coffee Mill Farmers Market is the newest farmers market to accept EBT.

This program increases access to fresh, affordable locally grown food for people who receive SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits.

The Farmers Market has always offered only local grown food, plants, or value added products. Now, more people can enjoy the benefits of buying from a local farmers market: Eat fresh, and save gas, time and money.

Hilo Coffee Mill is conveniently located on Highway 11, the beautiful Volcano Heritage Corridor, midway between Hilo and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

Hilo Coffee Mill works diligently to bring East Hawaii coffee to the forefront of the world market and to add East Hawaii to the list of ‘Best Coffee Growing Regions Worldwide.’
