Did you know that when the very first coffee tree cuttings were brought to Hawai’i in 1825 they were planted on the island of Oahu? Initially cultivated in the Manoa valley before making their way to the Kona region of the Big Island, the early years of coffee growing on oahu were a process of trial and error.

For over a century the town of Waialua on the North Shore of Oahu was home to not only one of the largest sugar plantations in the state but also the famous Dole Food Company’s pineapple fields. After the sugarcane plantation closed in the 90’s and the dominance of pineapple and sugarcane plantations subsided as the default crop of choice, the Dole company initiated a program to reinvigorate the land with diverse agricultural crops and founded Waialua Estate - a small 155-acre coffee farm at the foot of the Waianae and Ko’olau mountains, dedicated to refining one of the very few commercial coffee growing enterprises on the island and carrying on the rich farming traditions of the region.

With coffee fields at an elevation of 700 feet above sea level the mature volcanic soil and mild climate impart Waialua Estate coffee with delicate yet fragrant floral notes, hints of cocoa and soft touches of light chocolate.

As a new addition to our range of premium Hawaiian coffees, we’re pleased to offer you this chance to enjoy a unique single-estate coffee experience from the island of Oahu. If you’re a fan of coffees with a mild soft-sweet flavor, low acidity and a gentle mouthfeel... we have a treat for you!

    Waialua medium roast

    Published by Al Devereaux on Nov 10th 2023

    I use a Cuisinart drip coffee maker. I put 200° water over the coffee for a minute and a half to let it bloom before turning coffee maker on. I usually buy grand domaine This coffee is milder and less acidic. The flavor is amazing and there is less bitterness Than the grand domaine. I will definitely buy more of this, and will still buy the grand domaine

    Oh my! So damn good, we brewed this over the weekend and simply outstanding cup. The taste is smooth, no bitterness, not too strong just right. During the work week we used "regular coffee" and it was a downer compared to the Waialua! WOW what a difference. We love you Koa Coffee!

    My personal favorite. I like hint of chocolate and mellow smooth taste. I had to wait a few months until stock was renewed.

    Long time Koa customer, love all products in medium even though I lean mostly dark in other brands. But this one in not for me. This is more on lighter roast side. Heavier bodied than other Koa, but it is flavorful

    Waialua gretness

    We tried this because it is new to us, it is up there with all the great coffees at koa coffee! Makes the decision making on which coffees to enjoy next more difficult, since we treat these coffees as treats to be enjoyed! Have to say we ran out of Waialua and decided to wait on opening our Grandeur Domain, so we had a local roast coffee, they are good but nowhere close to Koa Coffee!

    Absolutely awesome coffee. I’m never disappointed in any coffee purchased . Koa is the best coffee ever. Very mild taste, no acid after taste. You do get what you pay for. Definitely worth it

    Published by Frank on Jan 28th 2021

    I have to say I wasn't sure what to expect at first but this is a very good coffee.No bitterness and no acidity. Very light and enjoyable. Honestly, if the shipping was free, I'd have bought another few bags already as everyone seems to want to take mine. They will have to wait until my next order. 8-) Thanks for having this one! It's my new favorite.

    Absolutely Heavenly

    Published by Elisha N on Sep 2nd 2020

    I was apprehensive on trying Kona coffee but needed to find a wonderful coffee with low acidic levels. The price had me concerned as I have never spent more than $10/lbs. However, this did not disappoint and I'm so happy I caved. I'm in heaven. The flavor is very smooth and a very little coffee goes a long way because it certainly wakes you up. I won't be buying any other brand now that I have found this!

    Amazing Coffee

    Published by Meredith on Aug 22nd 2020

    We have tried most of the Koa lineup and while it is all great the Waialua Estate is our favorite. It has a stunning aroma and a well balanced and smooth finish. As always, ordering and shipping through Koa is effortless.
