In Hawaii, Ohana means family, including the extended sense. We are Ohana; a family of sister companies. Together by choice, working with one shared purpose; to delight you with our exquisite coffee and tea...

One of America's oldest major coffee companies, LION Coffee roared into life in 1864 in Toledo, Ohio. In 1979, LION moved to Hawaii to focus on the only beans grown in America. That was the year Hawaii officially became LION Coffee Country! LION's regal standards demand the finest beans, fancy roasting, freshness, and an abundance of cheer! Today, our cheery red bags emblazoned with "the cup that cheers!" are shipped to coffee lovers around the world. When you drink LION Coffee, you are enjoying over a century of wisdom in every roast.

Royal Kona Coffee has a rich history dating back to the days before the world knew about Kona. The dream was to market the little-known bean from Kona Hawaii to International fame so coffee drinkers of the world could know of its Aloha flavor. Royal Kona Coffee started with a commitment and a promise to Kona Coffee farmers, that we could (and would!) sell all the Kona Coffee beans they could grow. One by one, they came to our door bearing 100 pound bags of green Kona and smiles as wide as the day is long. When you drink Royal Kona Coffee, you are drinking the first, the original Kona Coffee.

In 2000, Lion Coffee and Royal Kona Coffee formed a partnership. To work together, and help each other grow. The new "family" was called Hawaii Coffee Company.

Hawaiian Islands Tea was born in 1995, right here in Hawaii, with a mission to produce the world’s most fragrant and flavorful tropical teas. Exotic tropical fruit flavors, blended with premium tea leaves to create fragrant and flavorful tropical tea. Growing a company was crazy hard before there was the Internet or websites. So when this little sister arrived at our doorstep in 2004, we opened our arms and welcomed her to the family. We blend, flavor and package all our teas by hand, right here in Hawaii.

Today, we are the largest roaster of Kona Coffee in the world and Hawaii's leading supplier of coffee to the Island's hotels, restaurants and retail stores. We are a taste of Hawaii. Aloha!

Fun Fact: Hawaii Coffee Company is the largest roaster of Kona Coffee in the world.
