Coffee!

Posted on Tuesday, March 20, 2012 in Uncategorized

While we were in Hawaii Amy and I bought some cool souvenirs for her, my daughter Shannon, my son Josh and my son’s girlfriend Tay.

One day Amy asked, “Don’t you want any souvenirs?”  Then, before I could answer Amy answered her own question, “Oh, yeah, food is your souvenir!”  Unfortunately, based on the size of my waistline, I may have those souvenirs for a while.

Truth be told, I did come home with souvenirs.  I brought home five different blends of different Hawaiian coffees from three different plantations.

On Oahu we tasted our favorite coffee was the Dole Plantation’s Waialua Coffee.

I hated the “tourist-trap” feel of the Dole Plantation — and how expensive items in their gift shop were — so all I did was buy a couple reasonably priced cups of brewed coffee.

On Maui we visited a plantation that we “could have” bought a 2.5 acre lot on which we could build a home and have enough land for a profitable coffee harvest.  The lots started at $585,000.

When we reached the island of Kauai we visited the Kauai Coffee Company plantation.

I loved that they had many of their brews available to freely sample.

I also loved that they offered a coffee of the month club.  Hopefully, that membership will last longer than the seafood I’m storing underneath my new Kauai Coffee Company t-shirt.  =D
