FAQ’s

What makes Hawaiian coffee special?

The island has more than 50 coffee farms, many of them perched 600 feet above sea level with gorgeous views of mountains and valleys on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other. The island offers the perfect climate for growing coffee beans – just the right amount of rain combined with soil enriched by volcanic ash. Most of the farms are small, and their young owners are putting their heart and soul into shaping their Maui coffee as a new, unique alternative to the Big Island’s traditional Kona coffee.

At Duke’s Hawaiian Coffee, we use only premium 100% Maui coffee beans in our Maui roasts and in our premium blends. We get our beans just three to five days after they’ve been roasted on the island, then package and ship them straight to you. At home or at work, grind the freshly roasted beans right before you brew our coffee, and discover the special characteristics and enhanced flavors that will transport you to this dream island.

How do I brew the best cup of coffee?

2 tablespoons of ground coffee for every 6 ounces of cold filtered or bottled water. If you feel the cup is too strong scale back according to your tastes.

What kind of grinder is better, blade or burr?

Burr coffee grinders allow you to move the burrs closer and farther apart to adjust the size of your coffee grounds. Since different coffee makers thrive with different grind sizes, you’ll be able to use any coffee brewer you want, like a French press or stovetop espresso maker. You can also make small grind size adjustments to hone in your brew, something that is just not possible with a blade grinder.

What is the best way to store my coffee?

The best way to store your coffee is in an airtight container and in a cool dark place.
Be sure to keep your coffee away from moisture, oxygen and direct sunlight.

How much caffeine is in a cup of coffee?

Many popular energy brands actually contain considerably less caffeine than an old-fashioned cup of black coffee. An 8.4-ounce serving of Red Bull, for instance, has a relatively modest 76 to 80 mg of caffeine, compared to the 95 to 200 mg in a typical cup of coffee.

Which has more caffeine, light or dark roasted coffee?

Light roast has the most caffeine, the longer your roast your beans the more caffeine is removed from the bean.

Why is it better to buy whole bean vs ground coffee?

We always use whole bean, we like to grind the coffee as close to brewing time as possible for better taste and freshness.
