About the Cancino Farm
Mr. Raynoldo Cancino is an immigrant from Mexico. of very humble origin. Twenty-two years ago, he came for the first time to Kona to work as a coffee picker. Because of his cleverness and hard work ethic, he bought a small plot of land on the slopes of Mauna Loa where he started to produce his own coffee.

Now, all his family works and is involved in the coffee business. Mr. Cancino is a prime example of a person who achieved the American Dream.
