Ōhiʻa Lehua Espresso Cup & Saucer

Introducing the first drop in our new Mauka to Makai Collectible Ceramic series, included in this collection: the Ōhiʻa Lehua Espresso Cup & Saucer, designed by local artist Malie Moana.  

Adorned with vibrant red, yellow, and orange Ōhiʻa Lehua, this ozone blue demitasse showcases Malie Moana's distinct block print style. Printed on the interior of the cup, our logo. It's sure to elicit oohs and awes and be among your favorite household art.

Each cup in the series is manufactured with ergonomics and durability in mind by notNeutral. The series showcases the flora and fauna from Kīlauea Volcano to our beachside cafe in Hilo, illustrating our journey, Mauka (mountain) to Makai (water).


The Bourbon coffee variety, pronounced 'boar-bone' tends to have pronounced fruit flavors and abundant sweetness. Beloved by consumers for it's characteristic sweetness, low bitterness, and exceptional cup quality, it's also beloved by farmers for it's propensity to win competitions.  Case in point, it was our Puna Pink Bourbon that won Grand Champion in the state of Hawaii.

Red Bourbon is the parent variety which has given rise to two sub-varieties, Yellow and Pink Bourbon, each bringing it's own unique twist on the classic Red Bourbon profile. Here you'll taste Kaʻū Yellow & Red Bourbon side-by-side, produced by the same grower.

Somewhat like Willy Wonka, we've noticed that when it comes to coffee cherry, the red tastes like red and the yellow tastes like yellow. That doesn't always translate to the roasted product. But then again, sometime it does.

Red Bourbon typically offers a fuller body, red fruit sweetness, nutty sweetness and berry-like notes. Yellow Bourbon often has a flavor profile leaning towards yellow fruit, like apricot, banana, and tropical fruits. Of course, these details depend on the geography and terroir or the bean. 

This collection includes 10 oz of medium-light Kaʻū Yellow Bourbon, the same which received a 94 score in 2021, noted as being "juicy-sweet, high-toned, multi-layered...[with a] fruit- and floral-toned finish". 

Ka'u Yellow Bourbon tasting notes: Juicy pineapple, rose, sandalwood, white grape, cucumber. Powerful, vibrant, sparkling sweetness

It also includes 4 oz of medium-light Kaʻū Red Bourbon, featured for the first time online. Tasting Notes: Rhubarb, nougat, coriander; elegant & creamy sweet

Espresso Bites bar

Espresso Bites look and taste like chocolate, but contain none at all. It's Hawaiian coffee in the form of a bar. You can enjoy these innovative treats by the bite, or stir them in hot water for coffee-to-go. 

Hawai'i Coffee Lip Balm 

This treat for your lips (and whomever you kiss) is made with 100% Hawai'i coffee and organic oils.

Because Espresso Bites are made without stabilizers or preservatives, they may bloom or melt when shipping temperatures exceed 80 F. If this is a concern in your location please select FedEx shipping.

If you notice a white color to your bar, it's perfectly safe to eat. This happens when the cocoa butter softens and migrates to the surface. It happens more often when shipping in warm weather. Learn more about blooming.

Espresso Bites that melt or bloom when shipped via FedEx are eligible for a full refund or credit.

Espresso Bites that melt or bloom when the buyer elects Free Shipping or standard USPS are eligible for a credit.
