Big Island Coffee Roasters - Damage from Iselle

Iselle Not Too Bad?

We heard from Kelleigh and Brandon at Big Island Coffee Roasters.  It’s great to hear that they didn’t get hit too bad:
First of all, thanks so much for your concern and support! All in all, we didn’t get hit too bad, though we may not have power or steady internet connection until next week. Fortunately, we have a rusty, old generator to power the coffee roasters on!
Thanks to our wind break, there was damage to only 20 or so trees. Unfortunately, of what we did lose it was mostly young pink bourbon, which is our favorite elegant little tree. The damage was exacerbated by the pack of wild boars a that had loosened the root system of many trees earlier in the week.
