We've never had a bad cup of anything. Carrot cake was the bomb, service is friendly and efficient. Place is packed but it moves quickly. Entire shopping center is fun. Buy the hot sauce and the local pickles in the cold case.

This is truly a locally owned and operated business. The coffee is tasty, fresh and served with good old fashion aloha. On a clear day in Kamuela in September sitting on the porch is a great place to be. It can at times be crowded. Timely place to stop for tourist on their way to Hilo.

This coffee shop serves lovely little lunches but seats are few so get there early. Mostly local customers as opposed to Starbucks which is a mix of locals and visitors. Cozier than Starbucks too.

My husband drove to the Waimea Coffee Company from Mauna Lani Resort. We were excited to revisit a coffee place we fondly remembered from years past. But unfortunately it recently started closing at 2pm. We were so disappointed. Please stay open later in the day Waimea Coffee Company!!!!

Not exactly a coffee snob from the west coast, I am however used to really good espresso. I tried Waimea Coffee company twice in the last week and had wonderful espresso. I had a different barista each time, so the training is obviously very good. Impressed

So glad we stopped here on our way across the island. Friendly, fast service. Discovered, by the recommendation of their staff, that my new fav drink is chai tea latte! So good! Worth the stop!!

Food: We use the freshest ingredients available, in most cases, farmed right here on the big island. We have an herb garden out back which we use to make all of our own homemade soups and sauces. We shop at the local farmers markets for many ingredients. We care about what goes into our bodies and our community! This means we don't believe in microwaves, GMO foods, or artificial flavorings. We do believe in organic, local, and gluten free alternatives. We believe that fresh foods are better for all of us. All produce and baked goods are sourced locally! Come check us out :) Coffee and Tea: We have friendly, knowledgeable baristas here to craft you a delicious beverage. We use cold brewed coffee as our iced coffee. We feature our islands best coffees, available for personal pour overs and french presses. We also have 100% organic and local teas available for those who do not like coffee :)
