Kona Haven, Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
This Hawaii-based shop is located right in the heart of Kona, situated on Alii Drive, where the famous Kona Ironman Triathlon passes by during the marathon portion. Kona Haven has four overseas locations, as well as another location in Houston, TX, but this one has the fortune of being just 12.75 miles from the farm where the coffee beans are hand picked. The aroma inside is excellent, and the coffee is even better.
Eric Kim runs Kona Haven, and one reason why he thinks Kona coffee is some of the best in the world is due to the weather, climate, and care that people show. “Our farm is located at 2,000-feet above sea level, right in the Kona Golden Belt,” Kim says. “We have just over seven acres. Everything with our Kona coffee is hand-picked. It shows how much we care and how much work we put into it. We have 12 different coffees we roast, and three are 100 percent Kona coffee.” The shop also offers smoothies, special coffee blends, tea, lattes, and beans you can buy by the bag. [Kona Haven]
