Honolulu Coffee Company
Kona coffee grown on the Mauna Loa slopes, Honolulu Coffee Company uses fresh green Kona coffee from their farm on the Big Island of Hawai'i. The green beans are then sent to their experience center in Honolulu for them to be roasted. Check out their site to learn more about their Kona coffee's farm to cup journey.
