Kona coffee has arrived!

Kona coffee has arrived!

The British frigate HMS Blonde arriving in Honolulu in 1825. On board the bodies of King Kamehameha II and his queen; victims of western diseases caught in London. Mourning people in canoes crowd the ship in Pearl Harbor. On board as well: the very first coffee plants successfully to be planted in Hawaii, picked up on route in Rio de Janeiro! Sketch by Robert Dampier (1800-1874)
