Abstract:This analysis examines the economics of producing coffee cherry in Kona. It is based on a computer-spreadsheet economic budget for managing a mature orchard using information gathered from many knowledgeable growers, from agribusiness firms, and from the University of Hawaii-Manoa faculty and Kona Experiment Station farm manager. The production information is typical for a 4-acre Kona coffee farm in the late 1990s.
