The “Ambassador for Hawaii Coffee” creates bags with re-purposed coffee sacks purchased directly from Hawaii coffee farms. She believes Hawaiian coffee bags are the most beautiful in the world. She is drawn to the artistic qualities and likes the rustic character of the bags. Each bag is one of a kind, tells some sort of history of Hawaii coffee through it's vibrant graphics and artwork. For example: The coffee sack featuring a stunning screen print of the pueo or Hawaii owl sitting atop coffee cherry is Kauai Coffee's latest coffee bag. The pueo is considered to be sacred in Hawaii and legend names the pueo as " the protector". Visit her online store for bags that are available in several styles with beautiful designs.
