Top 5 Maui Coffee Shops

When you visit Maui coffee shops, you stand a much greater chance of drinking locally grown coffee.

After all, Hawaii is the only American state that grows commercial quantities of coffee.

While the most well-known Hawaiian coffees come from the Kona growing region of the Big Island, the other major Hawaiian islands produce their own distinctive coffees. Many locals feel that Maui Mokka is one of the best – if not the best – Hawaiian coffee.

If you choose to drink Starbucks on your next Maui vacation, you’ll be missing out on some of the best local coffee.

Make sure you try some of these top 5 Maui coffee shops during your trip…and bring back a bag or two of local brew as a souvenir!
