If you’re in Honolulu, you’ve got to stop by our Honolulu Coffee Experience Center for a private Roasting Tour. Our flagship location is a 9,000 square foot coffee lover’s paradise. Since the Experience Center opened in 2015, we’ve welcomed both tourists and locals into our home for some of the best coffee in the world.
The Experience Center was built with the goal of bringing our community the full farm-to-roast-to-cup coffee experience. Today, thousands of visitors come every year to witness our roasting process, taste test our most recent brews, enjoy our bakery and café foods, and browse through our gift shop.
Highlighted by the use of the celebrated and rare 1944 Probat UG22 iron-cast roaster, our Kona beans are roasted by our experienced and passionate roasting team to bring out the natural fruit flavors that our coffee is known for.
The 90-minute private educational tours are $25 per person and include a 15% off discount on retail purchases (must be purchased day of tour).

How should I brew my coffee?
The best coffee is coffee that you love. That said, there are basics for making the most of every brew, such as:
• Brewing Water Temperature: 195-205 F
• Clean, filtered Water
• Proper steep time for the grind setting: Coarse Grind = long brew time, Fine Grind = short brew time
• Proper Coffee to Water Ratio: 1 gram of coffee for every 16 ml (or g) of water
• A consistent grind particle size: Use a burr grinder if possible
• Coffee that is not too far off-roast
We love brewing the Kalita and French Press in particular. Get our recipes here!
