Hawaii’s Finest…Hibiscus and Java
While in Hawaii this past summer, we stopped at a local coffee plantation–one of our few touristy escapades. Just outside of the building was this enormous tie-dye coloured hibiscus. In reality, the flower was dying off, but its appearance was so unique that I couldn’t help but capture its sixties feel on camera. ‘Groovy man!’ Makes a guy wanna break out his White Rabbit single, 45-RPM record, which takes a person back in time a little, doesn’t it? Otherwise, you young folks can google that one.
Of course, being that we were at the plantation to cash in on some real Kona coffee (rather I think they cashed in on us at $80 US per pound!!!), I can’t justify writing this post without actually including a picture of one of the real deal coffee bean plants. Very cool! Afterall, I am most grateful for the bean’s roasted goodness, each and every morning, aren’t you?
(FYI: The Kona Sweet Coffee that we darned near had to exchange our return plane ticket for, is by and large the BEST coffee that I have ever had…an aromatic potpourri for one’s nose and mouth of nuts, chocolate and fruit juxtaposed with a distinctive and noticeable flair of each specific flavour. YUM-MY!:-0).
