Coffee tips to enhance your experienceI met with Oliver, a barista a Kimo Bean’s Waikiki location on Saratoga Road near Fort DeRussy. Oliver offered me a few coffee tips on how to enjoy the best cup of coffee.
- All espresso shots should ground to order so you get the most out of the flavors from the coffee.
- When in Hawaii, always order 100% Hawaiian coffee. Hawaii is the only state in America that grows its own coffee. Kimo Bean’s coffee is fresh, handpicked from estate farmers.
- Try a real macchiato, preferably in a 4oz or 8oz cup with a nice dollop of foam.
- Always have good music playing in the cafe, it sets the mood.
