A Farm to Cup Business That’s More Than Just Coffee Beans

The smell of freshly brewed coffee greets visitors as they step into Honolulu Coffee Company.  Established in 1992 out of a small kiosk in downtown Honolulu, the company’s goal was to bring the social atmosphere of European coffee shops paired with high quality beans to urabn Hawai‘i.

Abigail Joslyn, the Director of Retail Operations feels it’s important for customers to be able to enjoy what can be produced right in front of them. This is offered through activities designed to enhance the customer experience. Coffee roasting tours can be booked at their Honolulu Coffee Experience Center located at 1800 Kalakaua Ave.

With their distinctive production method and demand for high quality, they offer a wide variety of differently graded beans at a price fit for every budget. They also offer a subscription model so that customers can schedule the type and frequency of coffee beans delivered right to their door.

Their dedication to crafting an artisan experience does not stop at the production of their beans. Honolulu Coffee Company has cultivated a space where they hope to “deliver a sense of peace and aloha when customers walk in.”

“In addition to producing coffee, we sell [on O‘ahu] gourmet foods, other beverages, merchandise, and recently we curated a partnership with Kope Soap to produce soap bars that contain our upcycled coffee grounds,” Joslyn remarked. Customers can even take part in an at-sea experience, starting off the day by sailing across the iconic south shores of Waikiki on the historical Vida Mia. While at sea patrons enjoy a selection of freshly made pastries and enjoy hot sips of their various coffees.
