3. Check Out Some Local Products

The west side of Kauai is home to the headquarters of some great local products, which can become ideal souvenirs.

Local Kauai food items are a great way to give back to the local community and bring home a unique, tasty treat…or two.

Here are a couple great local companies to check out:

Kauai Coffee

Everyone knows that Hawaiian coffee is divine, but have you ever wondered about the spots where it originated?

At Koloa Estate, you’ll see just how things are done at Kauai Coffee. You’ll be greeted by one of their friendly staff and a freshly brewed cup of Kauai’s finest.

Here, you’ll learn all about the ways that Kauai Coffee is grown, harvested and roasted, then take a few moments to taste their different varieties.

Don’t forget to stop by their gift shop on the way out so you can bring a little Kauai home with you.

Koloa Rum Company

In the mood for a beverage that’s a little more adult-friendly?

The Koloa Rum Company is one great stop, especially if you like alcoholic beverages. This award-winning distillery produces a high-class product that has made quite the name for itself.

Produced using “tall cane” sugar cane and fresh mountain water, their rum will not disappoint. Take some time while you’re stuck indoors to check out their distillation process and taste these wonderful Hawaiian treats.
