Premium Coffee
With a Kick

our Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii will serve fresh coffees, signature-flavored lattes and adventurous frozen / blended espresso drinks inspired by the Hawaiian Islands. Our Hawaiian varietals are sourced from multi-generational coffee farmers committed to quality you can taste in every sip.

Hawaiian coffee trees are grown in mineral-rich, volcanic soil in tropical temperatures that give the beans their characteristically smooth finish. In addition to 100% Kona coffee grown on the lush mountainside slopes of the Hualalai and Mauna Loa volcanoes, your Bad Ass coffee will serve signature Hawaiian blends bursting with bright flavor.
