The Lauhala Gift Basket: In Old Hawaii, the leaves or "lau" were handwoven to create functional items such as hats, canoe sails, mats and baskets. Today, Hawaiians still enjoy using lauhala baskets for gift giving.
The Chocolate: a bean-to-bar chocolate from an award-winning chocolate factory on Oahu. Sprinkled with a layer of roasted cacao nibs and Hawaiian grown Kona coffee, the crunch complements the creamy mouth feel of this 60% dark milk chocolate bar. Each bar is crafted from ethically sourced cacao and the highest quality ingredients. 2.1oz. *Manoa Chocolate has updated the label with a beautiful local artist's work, now calling this delicious bar "Kope Coffee". Updated label for Kopa Coffee bar included below on its own.
The Story of Cacao: Hawaii is the only state in the U.S. with a climate appropriate for cultivating the tropical fruit tree Theobroma Cacao. Bean to Bar is a movement in the chocolate industry where the finest quality dried beans are crafted into chocolate under one roof. As well as emphasizing quality over quantity, bean to bar chocolate makers like Manoa are defined by direct trade with cacao farms across the world, paying socially responsible prices.
The Kona Blend Artisan Coffee: This is a 12oz bag of ground Columbian Excelsio, City Roasts and 10% Kona coffee. This bright morning brew is roasted just down the street from the Island Essence factory in Maui.
The Kona Coffee Soap: this 5oz bar of soap is made with Kona Coffee and its vibrant, fruity, invigorating scent is perfect for coffee lovers. One side of the soap features an exfoliating edge made out of the coffee beans.
The Kona Body Polish: Our Kona Coffee Polish will awaken your skin and senses with its exfoliating sea salt and kona coffee and hydrating oils provide intense moisturizing. 2.5oz.
The Story of Hawaiian Coffee: Good coffee growing conditions require high altitudes, tropical climates, and rich soil, and there is only one state in the good ol' USA that fits the mold. Hawaii has been producing coffee since the mid-nineteenth century — before it was even a state. The most famous of Hawaiian coffees are from the Kona growing area of the Big Island.
