10 Sweet Spots to Celebrate National Coffee Day on Maui

Posted by Mapuana Andrade on Wednesday, September 14th, 2022 at 2:33pm

We wouldn't want anyone heading out to surf the Maui waves without a healthy dose of morning caffeine. So with that in mind, we rounded up our favorite coffee shops all over the island that know a thing or two about brewing and wooing. 

Whether it's a macchiato produced from Molokai beans or a mocha prepared Maui macadamia nuts, there's a coffee shop for all tucked into every corner of the island. 


Maui Coffee Roasters

Maui Coffee Roasters, located in the heart of Kahului, is one of our favorite coffee shops on the island. They offer everything from ground coffee to cappuccinos, Thai iced coffees, nitro cold brews, tea, smoothies, sandwiches, freshly baked goods, quiches, and wraps. Just 5 minutes from Kahului Airport, make Maui Coffee Roasters your first stop!
