The 2011 Ka'u Coffee Festival was a huge success, with thousands of local people and tourist, literally buzzing around from the all-you-can-drink free samples of genuine Ka'u coffee! Besides drinking gourmet internationally recognized Ka'u coffee, there was top notch free entertainment all day, and lots of booths filled with delicious food or interesting arts and crafts.
Our Big Island Handmade tent was a popular stop for people. With inviting smiles from Tanya of Manila Extract, Raven from Molecular Muse, and myself representing Double Brush, fair goers came in to look at and purchase Tanya's stunning Ka'u coffee burlap handbags and pillows. Raven's beautiful sterling sliver jewelry pendants and charms with the visual molecular symbol representing caffeine, were also popular gifts. People enjoyed smelling our Ka'u Coffee soy candles & Hawaiian fragrance soy candles, and sampling our solid perfumes.
Our tent was honored to have Young Miss Ka'u Coffee and her friends stop by.
Many different hula groups from keiki (children) to kapuna (seniors) performed all day to the delight of everyone.
Near the end of the day, Cyril Pahinui graced the stage with his musical talent. It was a wonderful ending to a great day. Dear reader, I hope you are able to make it to the Ka'u Coffee Festival next year, we will definitely be there!
Mahalo to Tanya for providing the terrific photos!
