UPDATE Feb 21: After a box was stolen or misdelivered I reached out several times and in different ways, but received no response from Hawaii's Coffee Box. Since they ship with insurance I would be able to make a claim (or HCB could make a claim) on the lost package, but with no contact and no information it's impossible to move forward. Since the company seems to have gone silent I have cancelled my subscription.
I love the variety of Hawaiian coffees we've discovered through this box! It's been such a comfort in a year that we can't actually make it to the islands for a visit, and given that we need to have coffee anyway (NEED COFFEE) it is so handy to have some delivered every now and then. Not every shipment is a 2-bag shipment; as you probably know some Hawaiian coffees are very expensive. But many shipments HAVE been 2-baggers. I am very happy with the value. And I do like the little extra treats that sometimes come in the box. I would say it would be OK if the extras weren't always strictly coffee-related. (A little pack of mac nuts or something else of Hawaiian origin would be cool!)
I’m love pure Hawaii coffee and this offered the best way to obtain it! 100% Hawaiian coffe from different regions of Hawaii. I’ve received 2 shipments so far and m loving it. I bought the 3 month package. Depending on what gets sent you either get 1 pound or 2 - 8 ounce packages. You have to sign up before the 14th of the month, shipments are sent at the end of the month! Customer service is through email and any issues are resolved. I totally recommend this if you want to try true 100% Hawaiian coffee. Which cannot be found in stores!
OMG~! smooth and luxurious!, it puts all the other coffee companies to shame! Worth every penny!
December's coffee shipment was over the top! The two bags of light and dark roast were just what I needed to get through Christmas and the new year. Delicious beans from growers and roasters who really know their stuff. In fact, I'm drinking some right now☕️☕️☕️. Thank you and well done!
Mahalo for the raving review Lawrence! So happy to learn you are enjoying your subscription and what Hawaii has to offer. Glad we can help with your survival during the busy holiday season.
I've have been receiving the Hawaii Coffee Box for almost a year now and its like a little piece of Aloha in the mail everytime. Being able to try coffee from different roasters is amazing.
I am so insanely happy with this box! My Ohana lives in Hawaii so I am very excited every month to receive a little piece of Hawaii! I think it's awesome including the story of where the items in the box came from that month! I have become somewhat of a coffee snob after this!
My mom loves her coffee and I’m glad every month she is looking forward to being surprised with new coffee to try.
The coffee is always fresh and good quality.
Aloha Tatjana, Thank you for being a Hawaii Coffee Box member! We appreciate the support and are so glad your mom loves her coffee box. Mahalo!
Love this box! Best coffee ever.
I squeal with delight when I see my Hawaii coffee box arrive in the mail each month. I feel like I'm touring a coffee plantation and tasting their best batch of coffee, but I save the expense of the airfare and hotel. It is a pure delight to taste coffees from different plantations each month. It's always a surprise, and it's always a delight. I don't think I will ever cancel this box.
Pur first box arrived and we loved the coffee and treat. Can't wait for the next two. I wonder if there is a way to request dark roast for the coffee selections? Thank you!
Aloha Kathleen! We appreciate you taking the time to provide some feedback on what you hope to see in the future. There is no way to customize the offerings now but we will definitely take your suggestion into consideration when selecting our next offerings. Mahalo!!
Amazing coffee indigenous to region accompanied by information regarding the beans and their origin. Will order again!
All I need now is palm trees and a steel guitar playing...
Coffee is delicious as always!
My hubby and I look forward to receiving our Hawai'i Coffee Box each month! It's always a wonderful surprise something different which is exciting and intoxicating!!! Especially the smell of these brewing in the morning.
IMHO, one should view Hawai'i Coffee Box as your own personal Coffee Shopper whose purpose in life is to provide you with different flavor profiles to explore and enjoy.
1) I am very pleasantly surprised at the number of high quality coffee producers there are in Hawaii.
2) With each coffee producer either delivering product to their own high quality flavor profile or trying to find a unique niche, the consumer (i.e. "me") benefits from a wide range of tastes.
3) Then there are sometimes "surprises": a) sugar cane stir sticks, b) chocolate covered coffee beans - I am such a sucker for these things, c) "turmeric chips" - I never had these before, and d) coffee mugs - normally I would rather have more beans, but I received a mug that retained heat so well that I purchased 4 more.
1) Sometimes the flavor profile of the beans received are not to my personal liking (this is to be expected).
2) If you get a winner, you "only" get 8oz-16-oz: I WANT MORE!!!! ;-)
3) Wah, wah, wah (whining): during the summer months, I don't drink hot coffee so I do not personally value the shipments as much as I do during the cooler days.
4) I am concerned when the day comes when a coffee producer is repeated (after all, Hawaii is a series of islands and there are a finite number of coffee producers); however, each producer has several different blends, so getting a repeated product could take some time.
I really enjoy my monthly shipment. It is fun to taste the variety of coffees from our islands, and usually there is a little extra included as well.
I originally purchased a three month subscription for my husband for Christmas, because we both love Kona Coffee. The only way we were able to get it was when we were in Hawaii. But with the Hawaii Coffee Tour in a box, we have been enjoying it at home in California for over a year and a half. We couldn't be happier with the selections, the quality, the bonuses that often come with our coffee, and the memories that come back from our Hawaii trips. Even if you've never been to any of the islands, you're sure to love them, with a simple cup of coffee from there.
When company comes to visit, we always hide the good stuff, and share Costco coffee instead...sorry not sorry!
Aloha Jennie! Thank you for taking time to share your experience with us. We've loved taking you on this Kona coffee journey with us and look forward to continuing to bring back those memories of beautiful Hawai'i.
I'm on a Month to Month subscription but every box so far has been outstanding. Just being able to try different coffee beans from different locations from Hawaii is great. Is like Aloha goodness in the mail every month.
I have received two shipments so far and this is by far the best coffee I have ever tasted. The bags may be small but the contents far outweighs the size. I am from Hawaii so I have tasted some good coffee in my life but this stuff is Good.
Love the quality and variety that arrives every month! It's like Christmas or my birthday every time!
We love getting to try new coffee and this allows us to do just that with great coffee from Hawaii!
I got this subscription as a gift for my husband, and we have both enjoyed the amazing coffee that we have received so far. I drink my coffee black, and I have had a perfect cup of coffee every time I have made the coffee from these boxes. The flavours are delicious, and the coffee is smooth and robust. Absolute perfection!
Trying to find the perfect gift for my father is always a hard task, but after coming across Hawaii Coffee Tour (in a box), I'm happy to say that I've found the right fit for him! Ordering is easy, the company is diligent and communicative, and the owner is a sweetheart. This truly is a unique experience!
I signed up for a 3 month subscription for my brother-in-law. I never know what to get him. This box jumped out at me as I was aimlessly scrolling, and thought it was perfect. He loves coffee, it's a uniquely sourced variety, and it's the gift that keeps on giving month after month.
Oh how I enjoyed my morning tour of Hawaii. I did so without leaving my chair and the comfort of home. Nevermind the coffee being wonderful, I received a good size chocolate bar!! I was able to share it between the 3 of us and a story about both the coffee and the cocoa beans and how they came to together to provide it's farmers with year round crops, but it's customers with year round products to enjoy. You should take the tour. I leaned a bit and enjoyed a lot.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. We are so happy to learn that you enjoyed the contents and learning about our featured roaster. We look forward to continuing to share our findings with you.
