We roast our coffee in small batches every Saturday morning and serve most of it the following week to insure our customers a fresh experience. Please stop by on Saturday to see our roaster in action.

When we say only Hawaiian coffee we mean it.  Also when it comes to coffee, we know that freshness counts. Fresher is always better.  Our bags of coffee are roast dated.  We will roast coffees after they are ordered and then ship them to our customers.

We also use locally produced milk from the Big Island. Matcha torte featured in Honolulu Magazine Jan 2011 Honolulu Weekly reviews Otona No Hawaii Japanese travel magazine 2010
