“The khona mocha big drink is amazing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012 via mobile

This place is a tiny trailer in a parking lot, but it is absolutely amazing. The drinks take a bit because the place is so small but each drink is made fresh right there. The service is friendly and drinks are wonderful. It's a definite must go!

“Great Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2011

Drive thru coffee at the North end of Kapaa. It's convenient, good coffee, and very friendly! they only serve muffins and bagels right now, but I go thru any day I haven't had the chance to make coffee at home.
Try it you'll like it!

“Great Cup of Java”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

I had a mocha and my husband had a guava soda. Both were really great. Service was friendly and best of all, Dolphin Espresso park their trailer in the lot where Jurassic Park filmed the scene where the embryos are sold. A must visit for a quick cup of java if your on the island.
