Get into the “Aloha Spirit” with Bad Ass Coffee. This small café hails from the shores of Hawaii but has been sharing its premium, 100% Kona coffee with customers since 1989. For more than 30 years, Bad Ass Coffee has successfully spread the “Aloha Spirit” by combining great-tasting coffee with customer service that makes every experience memorable and fun. 

For many years, donkeys from Kona, Hawaii, would carry heavy loads of coffee beans, and the particularly strong ones received the nickname “The Bad-Ass Ones.” The native people of Hawaii reminisce on the outcries from “Bad Ass Ones” echoing through the mountains as they hauled heavy loads of coffee beans. The name Bad Ass Coffee pays tribute to the hard-working donkeys from the early days. 

If you like your coffee unique with lots of flavor, you will enjoy their “Slammer” espresso served with lukewarm chocolate and topped with half-and-half. On the other hand, if you prefer a simple and highly caffeinated coffee, their “Eye Opener” is served with two shots of espresso in brewed coffee,
