Rufus Poets Corner Market was created by an artist, poet, painter, novelist and farmer. It was established as an eco farm to instill the values and importance of sustainability on an island and community spiritual conveyance. My son Khalil and I have been farming all our lives. We grow cacao, coffee, fruits and veggies, and we have a plant nursery. Divine Hawaiian Coffee is my son's company.
The 40-acre eco farm is unique in many ways, It’s located next to the town of Pahoa. You can literally walk from the back road or highway and be in this old historic town with access to the community. It has 6 banyan trees of epic proportion. We have coffee started at 6 am each morning. You will be able to visit our restaurant soon, which we are in the process of building. The bus, post office and stores are only a thousand feet away. The farm is very accessible.

The vibe at Divine Hawaiian Coffee Market
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Rufus's property is conveniently located, just outside of Pahoa, but gives you the privacy of a secluded forest getaway. He has set the camping area back from the road, and has cleared a nice spot for his campers. It's so great that he provides a solar shower too! Make sure that you are clear on the directions because my GPS took me very out of the way from where it actually is. Rufus also has a market at the front of the property where he sells local art and goods. Rufus is an artist himself and I got to hear some of his beautiful poetry, he is very talented! Ask him to recite Requiem for a White Owl! Some other highlights of this property include the picnic table for cooking and dining and the beautiful old banyan tree at the back of the land that Rufus showed me. Thank you for showing me around Rufus, it was a pleasure meeting you!
I was van camping and found Rufus place and decided to give it a try. He had some tents already set up and some very primitive shacks as options. I stayed in my camper van. The glow from Leilani estates 2018 eruption was visible in the night sky. Rufus “ Bushman” has just killed a wild pig and he and some of his Guayana worker cleaned and butchered the pig Hawaiian style. Rufus and his crew were very welcoming and generous. We played dominoes and listened to dominoes till late. Offered me a shower in the morning and had coffee ready to go at 6am. Got a chance to tell story with Rufus in the morning but did not stay long enough to try the smoked ribs.
