Lily Kong Sr.

When mama Lily is not busy working the coffee land with her eldest daughter Lily Jr. and her hani-daughter Michelle she enjoys teaching the young ones local Hawaiian history, gardening, visiting with friends, and of course holo holo time out on the water handlining (fishing). Mama Lily is considered a Kapuna and a cultural advisor in Keauhou and is active in protecting the historical areas in and around Keauhou-Kona and it's burial sites. In addition to teaching Hawaiian history, she works on Hawaiian translations of old documents and practices Hawaiian herbs and medicine.

 

Lily Kong Jr.

Growing up as a child in Kona, she would pick coffee with the rest of her siblings and when she grew up, as an adult she moved to the mainland; she never thought one day she would return home to Kona and become a coffee farmer, but after retiring from the State of California, she realized life is too short and she had been away from her family far too long. She felt the strong bonds between a mother and daughter calling her home and wanted to spend time working side by side taking care of the land and learning as much as she can from her mother.

 

Michelle Joven

Is still finding out there is always something to learn about coffee farming and enjoys working the coffee land and building the business. She is the "geeky" one in the family and takes care of the roasting, ordering and office work. In her spare time she works on building her web designing skills and playing her guitar. You can find her once a week from 5:00-8:00 pm every other Wednesday and Friday playing and singing at Island Lava Java in Kailua-Kona. Michelle also develops the menu items for our farmers market. In her past lives she was a micro support help desk technician and supervisor in California; a General manager for a couple of different chain restaurants and a restaurant owner in Colorado. This is a new adventure.

 

To Summarize....

Lily Jr. is the farmer, Michelle is the roaster and Mama is the boss.
