Being a specialty coffee barista I tend to be snobby when it comes to all things coffee. Walking into Honolulu Coffee I was greeted with a warm welcome along with a great atmosphere of coffee culture. I ordered an iced americano. After the first sip of the americano I quickly went back for another. The fruity and bold yet smooth espresso was the best I’ve ever had. The coffee had lots of body but wasn’t bitter by any means. Truly all I could taste was the excellent notes of the coffee.

If you are a coffee fan, I 10/10 would recommend Honolulu Coffee!

We stayed at the Grand Wailea and took a daily stroll to the Shops at Wailea next door for coffee and acai bowls. Both delicious! Plus service was quick and items were consistent.

I always want to try the local roasters for the richest darkest coffee. Honolulu was good but not as rich as I prefer. On my second visit I did try the Hawaii latte: a flavorful change of pace that wasn't overly sweet. Has seating available inside, on patio or within the mall. Nice selections for gift purchasing.

Then this is where you need to go. Service is great and coffee is excellent. Questions are answered with a smile and they are really helpful.

For me the Latté is a bit weak, but I like my coffee to taste like coffee. That is easily fixed with an extra shot and that does the trick.

The drip coffee is very nice as well, but with a deistinct acid note - I find it nice but something to be aware of.

Their muffins are HUGE - our kids could not finish it and was very tasty too.

Got tired of the resort, so found this place. The Hawaiian latte is so good (macadamia and coconut). I grabbed one yesterday and will probably go there again this morning for another one.
