Honolulu became Hawaii’s capital city in 1845, which is also the year of the first successful recorded Hawaiian coffee harvest. Coffee production in Hawaii was overshadowed by massive demand for sugar cane until the 1990s, when sugar prices dropped and interest in coffee rose. Hawaii is the only coffee-growing state in the U.S., as well as the only coffee grower in the “first world”.
This roast, Nana’s Decaf comes to you from Sean Lee, founder of Keala’s and an Oahu native. His coffee sensibilities, honed between Hawaii and Seattle, shine through in this decaf: a blend from Central and South America, that’s roasted for the bold, smooth profile that Hawaiian coffee aficionados prize. Enjoy!
