Grandma's Story

Grandma began roasting and blending Maui Organic coffee in 1918.It wasn't long before Grandma's house became the place to go for a cup of coffee and to "talk story".

It is now four generations later and coffee is still in our family. Through the generations, we’ve learned the best natural methods of growing and processing the same Arabica strain of coffee that our great grandparents first cultivated here on Maui. Our coffee is grown without exposure to any chemicals or pesticides, which yields us the finest organic coffee in the world.

Our coffee is grown on the slopes of Haleakala, at an elevation of 3,000 to 3,500 feet. We pick the beans by hand, pulp the cherries, dry the beans naturally in the hot Hawaiian sun, hull the beans, and then roast them right here at Grandma's. All of this is done to attain the highest quality possible for our coffee beans. Our strain of coffee has acquired a very unique flavor and has become one of Hawaii's premier gourmet coffees, available on a limited basis.

Years ago, we decided to incorporate Grandma's original homemade recipes and our exclusive organic coffee into Grandma's Coffee House. We're proud to say that we continue the tradition - people still come to Grandma's to eat, drink, and "talk story".

As we always say, "have a taste of Maui, and enjoy a cup from the end of the rainbow".

Aloha and enjoy the coffee,
