Item Description

This brilliant glazed turquoise 12-inch ceramic plate is imprinted with lush coffee leaves and a charming Kona Nightingale — one of the iconic donkeys that played an integral part of our island heritage, particularly Kona's coffee industry.. It was created in commemoration of the 1998 Kona Coffee Cultural Festival, which was then celebrating 28 wonderful years of the event.

Since its inception in 1970 the Festival has sought to preserve, perpetuate and promote Kona’s nearly 200-year coffee heritage. The Festival features 10 days of festivities honoring pioneers, farmers, artisans & coffee!

The annual Kona coffee harvest that has sustained Kona’s agricultural community for nearly 200 years is celebrated every November. The award-winning Kona Coffee Cultural Festival, recognized as the oldest and one of the most successful food festivals in Hawaii, honors Kona’s cultural heritage and recognizes the accomplishments of Kona coffee pioneers, farmers and artisans.

Recognized as the oldest and one of the most successful food festivals in Hawaii, 10 days of events promote Hawaii’s unique culture and diversity and supports the Festival’s mission to preserve, perpetuate and promote Kona’s unique coffee heritage.
