They micro roast (less than 50 pounds per roast), hand label and pack each individual order for their customers. They are primarily a wholesale business with customers such as Mocha Java in Honolulu, and Morning Brew in Kailua. They also have a booth at the KCC Farmer’s Market on Saturdays, and roast Hawaii-grown beans as well as other coffees from around the world. Their unique Espresso which has a chocolate, nutty and sweet profile is one of our most popular blends. They custom roast and private label for businesses, events and individuals.
Master Roaster Kamaka Ho’opai. who has been roasting for over seven years, will be our host. He says that he “learned everything about coffee roasting from Karen Ertell” who was the owner when he began roasting. Kamaka welcomes visitors to the shop and loves to share his knowledge and love for coffee with everyone who visits.
