What makes Kauai Coffee special is that ALL the coffee grown on Kauai comes from this one plantation, so one of the defining characteristics is that the coffee flavor is totally consistent. Compared to the more general Kona coffee from the big island which comes from more than one plantation.
I did not explore the plantation, just the shop, and sampled many coffees. For a coffee addict like myself, this was more than enough to make me happy. I got an iced macadamia coffee which was absolutely divine! I can honestly say that Kauai Coffee is my FAVORITE coffee that I have tried to date. It can be ordered on amazon for less than $10 a bag, which I do regularly. Vanilla Macadamia and Coconut Caramel Crunch are both excellent.
