Honolulu Coffee

Honolulu Coffee 

Rich, dark and delicious: Best Hawaiian Coffee Spots

With its mineral-rich volcanic soil, Hawaii is the only state that can grow coffee commercially. Most of the coffee production happens on the Big Island and earns the Kona coffee name only if grown in the Kona district. Need a mood-lift? Let this indulgence nudge you toward a brighter day.


HONOLULU COFFEE

HONOLULU COFFEE

Honolulu Coffee hand-picks the ripest coffee cherries, which are wet-processed and sun-dried. The result? The richest, boldest, smoothest coffee you’ve ever tasted – though you’ll be lured by the scent alone as you pass. THE MODERN HONOLULU's exclusive Mojo Blend, blended and packaged for the hotel by the Honolulu Coffee Company, can be found in our Shop and served complimentary each morning in The Study. If you're out and about, duck inside one of Honolulu Coffee's locations for an iced latte (try the Nutty Hawaiian) – skilled, yet efficient, baristas add double shots of espresso to make these lattes strong…just the way we like them. To experience creamy, liquid paradise, order the Caramel Frost.

MORNING GLASS COFFEE + CAFE

MORNING GLASS COFFEE + CAFE

Morning Glass Coffee & Café wakes you up to quality. The owner roasts the Hawaiian coffee himself; menu items, like syrups and scones, are made in-house. Beyond Hawaiian coffee, the owner seeks out quality beans from all over the world, and every cup is brewed individually within a few days of roasting (the drip coffee is worth the extra few-minutes’ wait, and it’s intriguing to witness – and smell – so many coffees brewing simultaneously). Try the swamp tea or cinnamon soda (made with Big Island cinnamon) if you’re not a coffee person. Breakfasts here also earn raves.

ISLAND VINTAGE COFFEE HONOLULU

ISLAND VINTAGE COFFEE HONOLULU

Hit Island Vintage Coffee Honolulu for 100% Kona coffee served by friendly baristas. The Vintage Kona Mocha makes an addictive blend, the Hawaiian Honey Latte presents a sweet surprise and the Iced Lava Mocha swirls with dark chocolate and caramel. The regular Kona drip coffee hints at coconut – request it without if you’re a purist. For tea drinkers, the Tropical Sensation is topped with bits of strawberry, kiwi and blueberry. Don’t leave without browsing the gift shop.
