More than coffee

A whirlwind romance

Where the Incredible Beauty of the Islands Meets the Swift Efficiency of Switzerland.

When Swiss native Lorris met Hawaiian born Ambyr in Costa Rica, a land known for its amazing coffee, it was love at first sight. As their two worlds mixed, they realised that they wanted to bring their two homelands together.

Their shared love of coffee, culture, and travel gave rise to Honu Kope – a coffee that makes you fall in love at first sip.

Our story

There is a magic about Hawaii that can’t be found anywhere else in the world.

The same can be said of their coffee. And when we couldn’t find it out here, we decided to bring the magic of the islands to Europe. As we imported small batches for our family and friends, we realised just how special this coffee is to so many.

Thus, our company was born. Our logo, designed by a Hawaiian tattoo artist, is inspired by a moment when turtles kept popping up when we were in Hawaii – a moment that truly showcased the unique natural beauty of the islands.

That’s also where our name came from. HONU means turtle and KOPE means coffee. We want to bring you more than just an excellent product. We want you to fall in love with the experience of aloha every single morning.


To bring you the aloha spirit and a taste of Hawaiian culture with each sip of our genuine Hawaiian coffee.
Experience a magic like no other.

Our Values

Ohana = Family

Ohana is one of the most important things on the islands – which is why we want our team to feel like it. We have created bonds with them and the environment that will always be close to our hearts. Ohana means family, and we’re proud that we’re all family here.

Aloha = Love

Known as the aloha spirit, we make sure that we express love and hospitality with everything we do. From the first stage to the last, every part of this company is made with aloha. Which is why we guarantee that each and every cup of coffee from us will bring the love of the islands to you.

Pono = Righteousness

Doing the right thing is very important to us. That’s why we set out to make sure that each part of our packaging is eco-friendly, why we make everyone here ohana, and why every blend of our coffee is thoughtfully selected. We take pride in what we do so that you get the best coffee Hawaii has to offer. Plus, a part of our sales goes to the Surfrider Foundation each month.


With each purchase of Honu Kope, you are making a difference. Each month, we make sure that a part of our profits goes to the Surfrider Foundation, an organisation dedicated to protecting the world’s oceans. They bring awareness to the plight of our waters each and every day, a cause that is close to our hearts.

Not only that, but our state-of-the-art roasting centre is entirely eco-friendly, making use of photovoltaic panels for power and hybrid vehicles for transport. We don’t stop there, as our packaging is 100% biodegradable or recyclable to make sure we make as soft an impact on the environment as we can.
