Can’t start your day without a fresh cup of coffee? Why not make it Hawaii’s best? Hilo Hattie takes pride in offering the largest selections of premium Hawaiian coffees in the state of Hawaii. Two favorites are the Kona and Ka’u Coffee…
Kona coffee is considered as one of the best coffees in the world. Kona coffee comes from a small area of the Kona District on the Big Island of Hawaii. It is rich volcanic soil mild island breezes cool gentle rains and afternoon shade provide the ideal conditions for growing coffee. Our Hilo Hattie brand coffee is roasted consistently to a smooth and mellow medium roast.
Check out our Executive VP/ COO, Mark Storfer and customer sampling some of our Rusty’s Hawaiian Ka’u Coffee and read the full article here.
Since it’s Thrusday lets pay tribute to the lady herself…Clarissa “Clara” Haili, otherwise know as Hilo Hattie.
Clarissa “Clara” Haili was born on October 28, 1901. She began her career as a School Teacher but it was her singing and dancing that gave her a place in modern history. She popularized the comic hula style with such tunes as “When Hilo Hattie Does the Hula Hop” and “The Cockeyed Mayor of Kaunakakai.” She legally changed her name to Hilo Hattie in 1942
Clara “Hilo Hattie” Nelson died in 1979, leaving behind a legacy carried on by a quality company that understands and illustrates the Aloha Spirit.
