This Virtual Coffee Tour Will Have You Saying Aloohaa
Sometimes it takes a quiet sit and think, with a fresh cup of Joe in hand to realize a good idea. That, followed by the confidence that sets in with the caffeine to make you feel like you can make the idea a reality. I just love coffee and for some reason, I love visiting coffee farms. I want to visit them whenever I can. Subscription boxes are popular and many coffee brands offer their own coffee club subscription, but to my demise, I couldn't find one that offered the ability to try different coffee from across the state each month. After finally finishing my business degree from Hawaii Pacific University in October, my time was freed up enough to get started. With the tremendously powerful help of CrateJoy, I aim to launch www.HawaiiCoffeeBox.com in January of 2017.
The biggest goal during pre-launch is to make sure that there is a market for my coffee club. Ok business student, what does that mean? It means I can't be the only who thinks this is a good idea. Will others want to try coffee and goodies from a different Hawaiian coffee farm each month? Allowing customers to only purchase one box without subscribing, and making it easy to manage their subscription, I figure it would at least make an amazing gift! But sometimes we need to remember to gift ourselves, too.
It's been 14 years since I was Miss Kona Coffee participating in the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival and promoting the coffee industry in Japan with Ueshima Coffee Company. Now that I live on Oahu, I visit the Big Island often with my daughter to visit family, and coffee farms, and Lava Java, and Daylight Minds... to name a few favorites!
Follow Hawaii Coffee Box on Instagram (@hawaiicoffeebox) for more up-to-the-day updates about this virtual coffee tour of Hawaii. I say virtual because I will be blogging all about the farm/brand that is highlighted in the box each month! So much fun!!!
