GENERAL

What does “Honu Kope” mean?

In the Hawaiian language, “Honu” is the word for turtle, symbolizing endurance and known as a great traveler and guardian spirit while “Kope” is the word for coffee.

What makes Hawaiian coffee so special?

Location, location, location! The island archipelago makes a geographical paradise for coffee trees as it is perfectly situated between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, a.k.a. the famous “Coffee Belt”. And not to mention the rich volcanic soil, tropical island breeze and the warm Hawaiian sun providing the best growing conditions for coffee, wouldn’t you agree?

Which islands do you get your coffee from?

Our finely selected coffees are harvested from the most renowned regions of Maui and Hawaii island also known as the “Big Island”.

Are all of your coffee 100% Hawaiian coffee?

We offer our Espresso and Lungo as 100% Hawaiian. Our Vanilla Mac Nut is a mix of Hawaiian and Costa Rican coffee beans as an homage to our founders' love story. See our about page or follow us on Instagram @honukope for more scoops on how their magical story began.

ECO-RESPONSIBILITY

In what ways are you eco-friendly?

As much as possible, we try our best to be conscious of our carbon footprint by selectively working with Hawaiian farmers and producers who share our green efforts as well. With that said, we are proud to say that our island partners use solar energy to power their roasting and packing facilities along with hybrid vehicles for the transportation of our coffee.

Is your packaging recyclable?

To make sure that we make as soft an impact on the environment as possible, our packaging has been made with materials that are either fully compostable (our coffee bags and valves) or recyclable. And just to be clear, that includes our coffee.

You claim to be sustainable but you use double packaging, what’s that about?

Well, yes that is absolutely right. Since we use coffee bags that are biodegradable, they tend to be more sensitive to things such as light and moisture. Which is why we decided to use recyclable outer packaging to keep your coffee as protected as possible from these damaging elements.
