Origin Coffee Roasters
Origin Coffee Roasters was established in 2019 in Kihei, Hawai'i by founder and roaster Heather Brisson-Lutz. Ever since then, Origin Coffee Roasters have put specialty coffee on the map in Maui. Not only that, they even won Maui's Best Coffee Roaster along with consistent winner scores of 90pts from Coffee Review. Origin Coffee Roasters was also the first Maui grown coffee to reach Coffee Review's Top 30 coffees! Origin Coffee Roasters has direct partnerships at the farm level as they believe in that the quality of coffee is an integral part of the business. By forming these relationships with the farmers, it allows for a more honest and collaborative space and even more opportunities for experimental methods and innovation.

The farm is near the top of Haleakala volcano (3,600 feet!). There is a no-till approach when it comes to farming, and all 130 distinct crops in rotation are sustainably maintained and naturally cultivated. Back in 2005, O'o Farm began coffee production by importing Red Catuai and Yellow Cattura from Kāʻanapali. Since then, they have become a competitive level producer of single site coffee. O'o Farm won their first ever state title in 2016 when they placed third in Maui District. O'o Farm also offers tours to showcase the process of coffee cultivation.
