Terry has 4 acres of coffee, and to prove the land and soil is no fluke, his neighbor on the mountain, Pat Pearlman, won the Gevalia Cup for her farm exactly 10 years after Terry. Terry is one of the true spirits of Ohana (family) in Kona Coffee, and he retains an air of regal self awareness in one of the most beautiful spots in Hawaii. In the picture above you see Terry raking his beans on the roof of his house, in a Japanese platform called a hashi dani.
Terry's coffee is available over the internet at www.dakinecoffeebean.com or by calling 808 - 328 - 8716. He has kept his prices amazingly low compared to his competitors. I asked him why and he said "We make a pretty good living and I just like to jeep my prices where people can afford them". Terry produces about 5000 pounds of coffee a year. This is one of the all time great Kona Coffees and a perfect Christmas gift.
