The Grown on Maui Coffee Festival will be hosted by the Maui Coffee Association at The Shops at Wailea on Saturday, Jan. 17, between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the fountain courtyard.

This year’s theme is “Meet the Coffee Farmers – Life on a Maui Coffee Farm.”

The event is free of charge and open to the public, including those who want to learn how to grow their own coffee.

Local Maui farmers will share samples of their homegrown brews, and information about what makes their roasts unique. The event will also include roasting demonstrations.
