Coffee farm

Just up the hill from the resort area I'm staying in is the Kaanapali Coffee Farm. A working coffee plantation that is also a real estate development. You buy a parcel of four to seven acres of which about one acre is for your house and yard, the remainder is planted with coffee that is taken care of by a cooperative. It makes for a low density neighborhood and nice views--which come with a large price tag: $1 million just for the land. They had a couple of raised, viewing platforms that they gave me permission to use. They were even covered, ideal for painting. That's the island of Lanai in the distance.
