KCFA Supporting Business Member Seal Program

As a buyer of the Kona Coffee Farmer Association’s 100% Kona Seals, a Supporting Business Member must agree to the following:

  • To use the KCFA seals (right) only on bags of roasted 100% Kona Coffee, grown in the North and South Kona District of Hawaii Island, also known as the Kona Coffee Belt.
  • To voluntarily keep records to validate use of the seals only for 100% Kona Coffee.
  • To acknowledge that the Kona Coffee Farmers Association reserves the right to revoke use of the KCFA 100% seal if the KCFA Board determines there has been misuse.
  • Supporting Business members who have purchased seals may use a photo image on their web page to promote and advertise 100% Kona Coffee and the KCFA. All other uses will require review by the KCFA Branding Committee and the KCFA Board of Directors to determine if the use is within its guidelines. A request outlining the nature of the use will need to be submitted to the KCFA Board of Directors for review.
  • To use of a photo image of the KCFA Seal on coffee labels, a request outlining the nature of the use will need to be submitted to the KCFA Branding Committee and the KCFA Board of Directors for review. If agreed, for a one time fee of $125, KCFA Members may have the Seal pre-printed as part of their labels.

Kona Coffee Farmers and Supporting Business Member Seal

The Kona Coffee Farmers Association authorizes the use of newly designed certification seals (above) by KCFA Farmers and by Supporting Business members who voluntarily keep an audit trail to support KCFA’s standards of authenticity and excellence and attest to the following:

  • All coffee using the seal must be grown within the borders of North and South Kona Districts, also known as the
    Kona Coffee Belt, Hawaii Island.
  • The coffee must meet the State of Hawaii’s Green Coffee Grading Standards as adopted under Chapter 147, Hawaii Revised Statutes.
  • As a Supporting Member, the participating business agrees that the KCFA Seal will only be displayed on packages containing roasted 100% Kona Coffee.
